Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lgslta Pain to clean the jets
It looks great and the whirlpool is just fine. My only issue is that I have to fill the tub and run it to clean the jets. A lot of gunk comes out if you don't use it for a while. So I have to waste gallons of water to fill the tub, run the jets, just to drain it. Then I have to clean the tub and then soak and use the whirlpool. If you plan to use it at least once per week it's perfect otherwise the cleaning sucks

It's not easy to find an in-stock whirlpool tub and drain kit, so I was pleased to find this tub at Home Depot. I liked the design of it, the size of it, and the drain kit (sold separately) contained all necessary parts, and connected easily. The complaint I have, follows a review I read before purchasing - the fiberglass finish around the drain is rough, and does not allow the drain to seal properly, I had to sand the bottom area of the tub down in order to properly seat the drain seal.
My other complaint is that there is only one access panel, and it is at the back half of the tub, to access the pump - so in order to install your drain connections, you either need to have access to the wall behind the drain or the ceiling below. Also, regarding the access panel, I think I will need to add another strip of Velcro to keep it firmly in place.
Follow all instructions - this tub definitely requires a mortar bed, because the outside edge of the tub extends below the bottom. You must use mortar because a material like sand will end up moving and cause disaster for your tub.
Overall, good looking tub (overflow being on top of the lip was new to me, but looks great with the trim), standard tub installation rules apply, nice interior surface, seems durable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handygirl Highly recommend this beautiful tub
I highly recommend this beautiful tub. The Jets work really well, and the recommended heater is a must for added luxury. The recommended drain assembly is really cool too. It has a push pop up drain to open and close drain. The only extra work from our old tub was that you had to install on a mortor bed. After the tub was tiled in and finished we went to install the cover panel. To our shock it was a different hue of white from the rest of the tub. We spoke to Missy at American Standard and emailed a copy of the Home Depot receipt...Bing,,Bang,Boom..Fed Ex delivered a matching panel 5 days later What great customer service we got from Missy.. I was scared since we already tiled in the tub and would have been stuck if the new panel was not a match. All is perfect now. I only recommend when you buy this tub check to see if the cover panel matches the rest of the tub, just in case you are not as lucky as we were after the installation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ditto01 Love the tub. Fits in the spot of a regular tub.
Works great. It's a fresh water hot tub that installs in the same space as a regular tub.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Christopher A great decision. Were happy
We gutted our bathroom to the studs, removed the cast iron tub, framed for this tub, installed the necessary electrical and then I had to move the plumbing because this tub is wider and deeper than my old tub. YOU NEED TO BUY THE SPECIAL DRAIN or this tub will not go into your home. I believe it is not a store stock item because mine was shipped.
It is truly amazing, I installed the optional heater and I recommend it. My electrical is a 20 amp GFCI circuit and it runs both the jets and heater without any problems (on a 5 hour test). If you buy the heater, the instructions let you know that a single 20 amp circuit is an option instead of the dual 15 amp one. It looks great, feels great sitting in it, It is a deep soaker tub. has multiple jet pressure and air bubble settings and is adjustable side to side... say you only want bubbles on the left or right. I feel it was worth it putting in this tub compared to a standard tub. More work but if we didn't, the bathroom would have been much like the old one we ripped out.
One more thing, it does not come with a liner or any protection during install. We used tape on the edges and curtains for the inside to keep installation damage to a minimal. Ours faired well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoeBlow Great tub but be prepared for cosmetic replacement
I've had this tub in for about 8 years, and it's still a great tub. Motor is solid, and tub is pretty easy to clean. Buy the heater and save money on the water. Only problem is the quality of the accessories. Paint on the overflow corrodes, and I've replaced the pop up drain plug twice. Access panel is secured by velcro, and I'm now looking for a replacement for that. Even still, I'd get get this tub again as it is a great value for the money!
