The Ovation is great for getting more bathing and showering space in a small bathroom. Paired with a curved shower rod (of course) it makes a really roomy shower. I love the look of it, too; a graceful and elegant shape. I'm a little daunted by the cleaning instructions; so many "normal" bathroom cleaning products are on the "do not use" list; can I really only use Dawn dish soap on it? So far it looks fine but it hasn't had much use yet. All in all, I'm very happy we chose it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vladamir Very nice looking, but needed a little tune up to install
The tub looks very good, very smooth and shiny including the non-skid tub area, and the acrylic thermoform is backed up by a strong layer of fiberglass. My wife and I did at least four dry fits so we got pretty good at easing it into the alcove and pulling out again. I did not use the mortar bed as they suggested since it seemed very stable. I put a layer of construction adhesive on the two 3/4" thick rails the tub sits on, and along the 2x4 ledge boards they recommend. My only complaint is that the outlet drain was not sanded level so the outlet plumbing was badly crooked. It wasn't hard to fix though, I just used a sanding disk on my drill and leveled it out myself, but that should be a basic quality check for American Standard. Overall though the tub seems very strong, solid and a great value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roof Perfect for the price!
I was hesitant on purchasing this tub for only $250. For some odd reason I would've felt better if the tub was in the $400 range. However, after purchasing, this has got to be the best deal in town.
I read in one review, the reviewer claimed the material was only 1/16 " thick. Not true at all.
I'm 61 yrs old, my wife and I installed this tub on a second floor. Keep in mind, you can't toss around the merchandise and expect it not to break.
We did set the tub per manufacturers instructions, in a bed of mortar (2-60lb bags). This was after we tried a dry fit of the tub.
Very pleased with the tub. We clean it with dish washing soap (no cleaners are recommended), and it cleans up spotless.
The center line from toilet to tub did not change enough to make a difference in our bathroom. But, l guess it could be a problem if you are pressed for room.
It is very comfy. The only thing I don't like about it is, once I get in it, I don't want to get out!!
Keep in mind, in any remodeling involving a tub, you probably will have to re-rough the plumbing since something will change from what it used to be.

Not sure what the plumber did or did not do, but the tub backed up the first time I took a bath. I have tried everything imaginable to remove the ring around the tub with no success. So disappointing. The tub is very roomy and looks nice, but I would not recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OBryanPlumbing A quality product
Very satisfied with the strength, design and structure of this tub. I would not however use the matching Ovation wall surround that is supposed to go with this tub due to it's different composition and flimsiness. With this said - if you want a nice tub and plan to tile the side walls then this is an excellent choice.

Tub is easy to install and looks nice. Material is sturdy enough, although if you are used to cast iron it will feel a bit flexible on the bottom center.
