Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 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 2.0 out of 5.0 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!

Nothing to rave about, but this seems to be a good solid tub. My plumber recommended it as it is sturdy as cast iron, but much, much lighter. Has little non-skid pads (done very discreetly) on the bottom of the tub to reduce slipping.
No complaints. This is only 14" high which I bought for my mom, so she can easily step in & out of this tub.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by anney Great tub!
This is a pretty basic tub and it works great. I love subtle non-slip texture on the bottom. It's also easy to clean

Excellent product, in weight, ease of installation, installation instructions, and look. I purchased this particular tub for its ADA compliance and for my wife, it makes it extremely easy to get in and out of.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mags As good as it gets for the price!
The tub was on sale - at a great price~ No damage or flaws once we took it out of the box.
The new Ameri-cast material is considerably lighter than the older cast iron/porcelain tub that we replaced making it much easier to get into the area than it was to get the old one out! :)
The ONLY hitch in the whole purchase was the expected delivery date to the store. Had nothing to do with the product, so I'm not counting it against in the review. That did, however, delay the start of our bathroom remodel - which meant it didn't get done by Christmas. :(

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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.
