Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rita Started Rusting after 5 years
Our tub is used by only one person 3-4 times a week and the bottom began to rust after less than 5 years. The porcelain/nonskid finish must be very thin. Since we can't replace it without demolishing a row of tile, we are stuck with trying to refinish it. I order a top-rated kit, wish me luck!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Regul8R Great replacement for price
I used this for a replacement during a remodel on a rental property. It fit perfectly. I had contractors do the install, but they said it went in easy. I love that it comes with an anti-skid or slip resistant coating.

After 4 years of limited use the rust appeared around the drain. Within in a few months after that the rust is spreading. No help from manufacture. Home Depot did give a $50 store credit. Not much help for a potential $1500 plus tub replacement. Buy a good cast iron tub.
I would not recommend this tub.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OldDIYGuy Wrong Specification Link
I don't know yet if I like this tub. It's being installed in a condo, so I didn't want to have the tub on the premises until the rough-in was complete. Problem is, the rough-in was done using the "specification" link provided on the HD web page for this tub (Bootz Aloha, left drain). That link takes you to the WRONG TUB. The dimensions are different. I just spent half my day un-doing, and re-doing all the rough-in. (Is that what HD means by "more doing"?)
Lesson learned. With HD, you're on your own to make sure things turn out right.
Go to the Bootz website to get the correct specifications.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simmsy Amazing for price
My husband and I had to do a complete bathroom remodel with a limited budget. We have had this tub for 4 months now and I still find it amazing. Was a little nervous on other reviews about it chipping or hard to clean, but I haven't had a problem at all with it. We even had to do more remodeling after the tub was installed, such as putting sanding plaster on the dry wall, and painting the ceiling. Sure, there was a mess in the tub. However, I carefully vacuumed the tub out with a dryvac and then I just use a non abrasive cleaner spray for cleaning, such as tilex or scrubbing bubbles. I have 3 children, ages range 6-12, all boys, and we all know boys can be rough...but still, no problems with this tub. I love that the bottom of the tub is slip proof as well. To me, it doesn't make it hard to clean, I clean it once a week so it doesn't get overly dirty anyways. Great buy for the price!!

I purchased this tub as a replacement for my second bathroom, and installed it myself (I’m pretty handy) 3 months ago. The tub was light enough for me to handle by myself, and the foam pad they provide on the bottom made it easy for me to put in. I had read other reviews before buying, and also call the manufacture with questions/concerns about what I was reading about the tub (cleaning issues, rust spots and the sandpaper bottom). I clean tub using "Bar Keepers Friend" recommended by Bootz (sold down in the cleaning aisle). I had small rust spots that I couldn’t get clean, until I used this cleaner. I was told the spots were from metal particles that settled in the tub after my installation, and that porcelain itself can’t rust. I was also told that using a stiff nylon bristle brush and Bar Keepers Friend will clean the bottom of the tub where the non slip finish is (and it does). Bootz told me that it is a law for tub manufactures to apply a slip resistant finish to the bottom of all bathtubs sold in the US to prevent slip and fall accidents? I found that by using a Scotch Brite pad on the slip resistant surface, I was able to reduce it to a comfortable level. That tub gets used everyday by my 2 kids, and it still looking great!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bigfatartcat this tub is garbage and cost me $500 to fix!
Tub is a rust bucket. flimzy and ill formed. it rusted all over in little spider web cracks all over the porcelain coating which chipped off in big chunks after a 2 lb plastic shower curtain rod fell on it.
Also the 'non-slip' pattern on the bottom is unclean-able and stained to a soft brown cream color that would not come clean with bleach clr or elbow elbow grease after just one month of use.
Don't just walk away from this product, run!
It cost me $500 to have the tile ripped out and replaced after this thing had to be removed, and that does not include the cost of having to buy a new tub to replace it!
Worst remodel disaster ever and we do this all the time!
I wouldn't suggest this tub even to my most loathed enemy.
