This was a very short article that did not seem to me to need a separate encyclopedia entry, so I redirected it to the more comprehensive failure rate article, which addresses the Bathtub curve.

The curve shown is not good: a typical bathtub has a steep decrease in the left side (the side where the bathtub has the drain hole), a longer horizontal low portion and a smooth rise at the other side. Similar is the curve of the failure rate. I suggest to copy here the curve of the german or Esperanto version, which shows the affair better.--Hans W (talk) 21:13, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Reference 1 has a bad link. The correct link is: However, I don't know how to edit reflist. Bread2u (talk) 00:08, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

That's a bad link too ^ — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:22, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

"Bathtub effect" should not redirect here[edit]

It refers to something quite different: the ability to recall the start and end of a forgotten word (on the tip of one's tongue) — with reference to a person in a bath whose head and feet are alone visible. (talk) 18:35, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
