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.

Replaced a old cast iron monster with this tub. I am very pleased with the results having used it for over 6 months now. Cleaning is a breeze. Just be sure to use the recomended products and you will get no staining on the non slip surface. Also a install tip. Before you set the tub wrap and stuff all the sides with insulation such as Owens Corning pink fiberglass. This not only will keep the heat in when you fill it with water but also makes the tub super quiet so you don't get the noise of the steel. Makes it sound like a heavy cast iron tub. I strongly recommend this tip. You'll be glad you did it.

This tub was super easy to install. The reviews stating that there are chips in the finish are NONSENSE. We installed this tub (we are Do it yourselvers) following the manufacturers instructions. After installing it, we placed an old comforter inside the tub before tile install and grouting. Once the tiles were installed it was easier to clean up that way.
If you take care in installing this tub and cover it beofre tiling and grouting so that you dont have to worry about the errant dropped tool you will have nothing to worry about.
After reading some of the bad reviews I almost made the mistake of over paying for a tub. So glad i went with this option as I feel i got the most bang for the buck. If you are looking for a simple tub and dont want to bother wasting time and money with a whirlpool type tub, this is the way to go.

I purchased this tub to replace a fiberglass/ plastic tub that was originally installed in my home. Installing this tub was completely finished in about 2 hours with the help of a friend. Took the suggestion to wrap the tub with the $13 roll of insulation, I also used the "great stuff" expanding foam on the floor. It holds the water temperature excellently and helps to keep the noise down. Very happy with this tub for the money and ease to install.

We had a birds egg blue 1970s cast iron tub...We looked at refinishing it .Our friends had theirs refinished 3 yrs ago and it was already starting to peal at the drain.... So we looked at all replacement baths under $200 .I didn't hold out much hope for a bath at this price point I have to say .Got it home (using the home-depot renta truck for under $20.00) plus all the cement board needed ect.Decided to wrap it with the unfaced insulation that many people recommend doing for the heat retention and to help with the empty tin sound.We had put in a new sub floor and knew it was level,So lets see how outa wack this bath would be ! UNBELIEVABLE it is dead on the bubble .... No one who has seen it can believe the price point on this bath tub. Works for us <3 :-) its in our sons bathroom .... He doesn't take baths ,just showers but so far im at a loss to find fault .....Gave it a 4 star only due to the fact it really does need the insulation wrap in order to "not" sounds so hollow ... hope this helps

Doing a bathroom remodel and needed a decent looking but not expensive tub. replaced a cast iron tub and wanted the same look and feel without the weight. The Bootz Porcelein on steel tub looks good, is easy for one person to handle, and is easy to install. The foam on the bottom does an adequate job of insulating and stabilizing the tub, however my main objection was the "tin drum" sound of the tub. A quick & easy fix to this was about 12 ft. of R30 unfaced ceiling insulation. I put this all around the tub and it really muffles the sound well, and will have the added advantage of helping maintain water temp. This would be an easy fix for Bootz to do, but only using half of a $14 roll was very easy and cost effective for the do-it-yourselfer.
