Rated 4 out of 5Â by HandyJan Good basic tub
Replaced a fiberglass tub enclosure with this and tile above. I was pleased that even I could maneuver it around by myself, in opening the box to inspect it for defects. Installed easily and I like the lower height for ease of step-in. No complaints. It's a good basic tub. In my search, HD had the best price on it.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by ClevelandMom Sadly, avoid this tub!
After reading the reviews, I thought 'Wow, this tub sounds great!' Good price, Americast material sounded perfect, as we remodeled the kids' bathroom. The good news is, it DOES maintain the warm water temp better than our old tub- great for baths. And the wall is slightly lower so easy for little ones to get in and out of. However,
DO NOT BUY!
THE TUB CHIPPED RIGHT AWAY- not from the install- I inspected it very carefully , first when it was delivered, and then again after it was installed. Not even 2 weeks later though I noticed a chip. Then, a week after that, a small scratch. I should not have ignored the review out there that said you can scratch it with just your nail- sure enough, that's true! I called American Standard, sure that this would be covered under warranty, and it IS NOT. Scratches aren't covered. Absolutely ridiculous. Really? 2 weeks into a tub and it's getting scratched up. (And nothing funny going on here- no hard plastic or metal items coming into contact, just wee ones taking a bath, hadn't even used any cleaner on the tub yet before it happened). They suggested I buy touch up paint and I can fill it in and sand it.
BUYER BEWARE. Find another tub, any other tub, do not buy this one!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by sdwh If you have the space, go for a larger tub.
This tub is too shallow and too narrow -- down where you are sitting, the inside dimensions are only about 49"L x 21"W 13"D. The porcelain is extremely thin; I already have a scrape that goes all the way through to the cast iron that was made by a workman. I can't imagine this tub holding up to the rigors of kids and their toys.Â

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HappyDIYdad Great affordable tub
Second time I have used this tub in a kid's bath remodel. Very affordable and perfect for kid's bathroom. Like the low weight and ease of installing. Insulation keeps the water warm longer (kids stay happy longer which means mom stays happy longer which means dad (me) stays happy longer too!). Arrived at HD store in perfect condition and got it up the stairs without an issue. If you're doing a Master bath, may want to consider a deeper version of this tub instead. Again, very, very happy with this for a kid's bath.
