Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by justkeepswimming great tub and price
I was very excited to find this tub in a five foot length. It was all that would fit in our narrow bathroom even after gutting it completely. It is very well made and can get very deep when filled if desired. It has plenty of width to stretch out, but being only five feet long, a tall person will need to prop their feet on the overflow rim too soak fully extended. I will testify the overflow drain works very well because I have forgotten I was running the water to fill it a couple of times and it didn't flood the house. It is very easy to clean. Be sure to note certain products cannot be used to clean it or it will ruin the surface. Our overflow cover was included in the box and I have seen a few reviews where people could not find theirs. We used and apron but did not purchase it through HD who did not carry the five foot size at the time. We ordered it through an online supplier. It is okay and was simple to use, but the built in look would have been preferable for a tub this nice.
The only catch we ran into with its install was finding a proper bath tub faucet. The faucet and fill knobs need to be wall mounted. The length of the tubs fill spout will need to be longer than average to extend over the rim of the tub so the water pours directly into the tub basin, otherwise it will splash off the rim before flowing into the tub. It wasn't hard to find, but it wasn't expected.
Overall its a great tub especially for the price!

I stayed at an inn that had recently upgraded their rooms, and part of the upgrade was this soaking tub. It was easy for me to soak for more than an hour, because the tub was so comfortable. I am now remodeling my bathroom and putting this tub in my house. I look forward to many long soaks. I am getting the deep water drain gizmo to make the water level higher.
With more water, it keeps the temperature stable longer.

I suggest checking this product immediately upon receipt and not waiting until install to find out it is defective. It arrived without enough fiberglass in one area, thus unable to hold water. Now we are out the time and expense of returning a special order tub, ordering a new one and bringing our contractors back after the 8-10 days it will take to receive the new product. Lesson learned.
