    Awesome! Mark...make sure if you have any secondary drains in the tub that you block the holes off when she swims. We had a member have a near miss with a snake almost getting into a secondary drain in a sink once. I didn't even realize until recently that there was a hole under my drain handle in my tub that serves as a secondary drain...perfect size for a garter head!

    So awesome!

    Now besides blocking the drains, is there anything you need to put in the water, like I do with the drinking water for him.

    I don't think that most people treat the water when snakes are swimming. It's not like they are drinking large quantities of it while they are in there. Unless you have water that has unusually high contaminants, I wouldn't be concerned.

    It was something I was curious lately, seeing all the pool parties going on.

    Just put 4/5 inches of tepid water in.........that way she can't reach overflow/secondary .
    That was the 3rd time I put her in the tub , First time she just floated there ...doing nothing. Second and third time was while dealing with her mites,but it was only the last time she seemed to have a bit of a swim

    Also had to lose the sound as it was the noise of the kids excitment and jumping around and the noise of me telling them to be quiet and keep still
