Only caution, I suggest changing the wafer more frequently than usually if you use the tub. This will avoid irritation around the stoma under the wafer to develop from bacteria in the water.
I can't speak to other wafers and bags except Convatec. The belt is essential to feel secure. The wafer will stay on even without the belt, but I won't chance that.

For years and have. Never had a problem .........
I also use convatec without the belt ...
Good luck !!!!!
For the past couple of years I've gotten the extra security from a product called Sure Seal Rings. (Edgepark among others supplies them but for whatever stupid reason they're not covered by insurance since my wear is longer and change less)
The seal a thin piece of clear adhesive that goes around the flange. I use a 2 piece Convatec appliance but I'm sure it will fit any brand.
If I sound like a spokesperson for the product its because the seal has provided me with the extra security, with or without taking a soak, that other adhesives can't and I wind up with generally a 5 day wear.
Enjoy taking a tub.
1. waterproof tape "picture framing" the edges of the wafer barrier fabric
2. a belt made for your system (I use ConvaTec) and take an extra belt to be able to change into dryness
3. something akin to Ostomysecrets wrap; not waterproof but keeps everything snugged close to the body.
Alternatively, being a girl I wear a one-piece suit that hugs my tummy. Don't need a wrap that way.
I super glue a web belt to the bottem of a #2 rubber-maid bowl.
Roll the empty pouch up under it and set the belt in place around you.
No limit on the time in any water hot of cold.
Wprks for me!
illeostomy my Dr. told me to get rid of my hot tub. After I did and starting missing it I thought that I should have got a an old skin divers dry suite and modified it to cover my ileostomy. I think that would have kept everything dry and secure.
Good Luck.... Enjoy your life.... Don't worry to much about what others might think.....
im lucky to get 2 days from mine before it starts to leak
