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 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 3.0 out of 5.0 by Candyman Damaged and missing specifications for installation
Just unboxed this tub and found the corner was dented and the porcelain was chipped. No obvious packaging damage, so this could be a QC issue or just insufficient padding to protect the tub during shipping/moving around.
Also found that HD does not provide a PDF file with a spec sheet detailing the plumbing offsets required for installation. The box did not include this information. Tubs from other manufacturers include this information. Missing this info forces me to completely unpack the tub and measure the offsets, then do the framing. Not happy about having the tub unboxed and unprotected during this time. A simple sheet containing the offset length to the drain and the height to the overflow would avoid this. Hope the replacement tub is undamaged. I would recommend this tub as long as the above concerns are not an issue for you.

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 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lanie Good product, but had a defect.
Everything was good regarding installation. I saw a plastic Bootzcast oval logo glued to the foot of the tub. I thought it was just a logo tag and did not remove it until the tub was fully installed and tiled.
To my surprise the logo fell off and behind it the enamel was gone down to the black cast.
I am very unhappy and it has ruined the beautiful look of my tub. I have no chose now but to
try and cover it either with the glued logo or touch-up enamel. I will never buy anything more made by Bootzcast.
