Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KatieD Perfect for the DIYer!
The BootzCast Tub arrived in perfect condition and was easy to install. Some of the other reviews had me concerned, but I'm glad we went ahead with this tub.
The tub is light weight and has the built in leveling support pad (no mortar bed needed!). The rubber-like coating makes the tub extra quite.
As other review mentioned, the slip resistant surface is different than you might be used to, but it's great under the feet - we love it!
We had no problems with the tub scratching (we did cover it immediately after the install with cardboard and plastic). I suppose if you don't prevent abrasives from going into or onto the tub it could get scratched, like anything - use proper care and preventative measures.
The installation was a breeze. The plumbing from our previous tub lined up perfectly so we didn't need to switch out the drain or overflow. We checked everything for level, installed a back side support board onto the studs and the tub went right in. We anchored it as instructed and we were done in minutes. The best part, no mortar bed needed!
I would recommend this tub to anyone planning on doing their own installation, it's easy to work with and light weight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scotty Very nice tub!
This tub was so easy to install, it "dropped right in" to the old spot and leveled itself! Only problem is, 3 days later our brand new glass shower doors fell off the track and one of them smashed into a billion pieces inside the tub and took a large chip the size of a quarter out of the bottom. I was able to fill it with liquid steel, but I can't find a porcelain paint to cover the patched area as the tub is not "pure white" but just slightly off white.....otherwise, one of our best purchases for the new bathroom and it looks great with the beautiful new tile!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LZIL Great Tub
Per our contractor, this is one of the best tubs he has installed. He liked that it was insulated. He did have to readjust our plumbing to make it fit. My only caution is that it is more off white than white compared to our white porcelain tile, toilet and sink. I thought it was a good value.

I had this tub installed under some tile and I feel like I'm in a 5 star resort or hotel every time I go to take a bath. Great non-slip surface let's us have peace of mind when our 9 month old son is bathing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeT I'm very happy with it.
This tub was purchased as a replacement for an old tub that was installed several years ago. I didn't want to replace it with the same brand because my previous tub's anti-slip floor was impossible to clean from day one, and the floor of the old tub had a depression in it that created a constant puddle. In short, the old tub was faulty to begin with and looked terrible.
I chose the Bootzcast because it was the same size and color as the old tub, it had a self-leveling bottom, and it was very affordable. For the money, it is very good value.
I have had the Bootzcast tub for almost two weeks now and I am delighted with it. First of all, it looks great. The anti-slip floor of the tub is not scratchy underfoot, as someone claimed in another review, and I've had no problem cleaning it at all.
I am delighted with it and I am proud to show it off! See attached pic of our newly installed tub.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brooklynman It's very good tub
My contractor installed this tub 3 weeks ago. It is a very good product. It is quiet, smooth, good looking, good price, excellent anti-slipping feature, and light weight. Some viewers said there is a sand paper feeling due to the anti-slipping and it scratches easily, but I think if you know how to use and take care it, it's a very good tub. My old cast iron tub was so heavy, slippery, and noisy during showering. I'm happy to have this tub.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barb Very pleased with this tub
We chose this product because we wanted one the same size as the original 1985 tub for our hall bath remodel. My husband and I were even able to take it home in the back of our small SUV. He installed it without any problem and it looks great! We used white subway tile as a surround and the result is beautiful. Initially, I was concerned that the non-slip bottom would be scratchy and difficult to clean and that's just not the case at all. Very pleased with the looks and function of this tub. Also, it's much quieter when filling than our old construction grade cheapo tub. I would definitely recommend this tub.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by realoc It's not white
Great looking tub. Looks easy to install, but I didn't install it as it doesn't come close to matching the white of the Kohler toilet I also bought at Home Depot. This tub is a bone color even though it is listed as white. Only other brand of white steel tub Home Depot sells is American Standard which has very bad ratings. L...s doesn't have other choices either. Off to the plumber in hopes of better choices.
