Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kim Do NOT buy this tub!
I typically read reviews prior to purchasing, but fell in love with this tub on the spot and made an impulse buy. Once home I read review after review after review about the tub chipping off porcelain and thought that maybe ours wouldn't be damaged.
Unfortunately that wasn't the case. We had chipped porcelain inside the tub basin so soon enough those spots would rust. Then reading that people had to open 2 or 3 before they found one that was in good shape just made me decide to get a different tub all together.
I'm not sure if these tubs brand new come with a protective film, but ours did not and the box was slightly damaged too. My thoughts now are someone else previously opened it, saw the damage, and returned it.
Hopefully the one we just returned doesn't end up back on the shelf too!
Do yourself a favor and go with a better quality tub!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Carefully inspect the tub before installing
The first tub we took home have very thin enamel on each corner, but the interior looked good. My wife and I got it set in place, leveled, and then removed to install the drain. That's when I noticed a bubble in the enamel on the sidewall of the tub. A scratch with my thumbnail and the enamel peeled away.
It was returned, and the second tub seems to have thicker enamel all around, and not bubbles. It installed okay, but lost half a day returning the first tub.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BuyerBeware22 Contractor review - pictures included
My wife and I run a small property investment, rental, and renovation company in the Western Pennsylvania area. I am the licensed contractor of the outfit and head up our small renovation crew. I wouldn't say that we specialize in high-end installations, but we do our best to offer a lot of value for money in our renovations.
The pictures included in this review are of a bathroom renovation in our area using a Maui tub purchased at my local Home Depot. I did not pick out the tub myself: the people at HD did. There were no problems with it -- it was still in the box. I've personally handled the bulk of this renovation. I feel I'm at least minimally qualified to handle the work of putting one of these in and I can confidently pass judgment on this tub.
It's a great steel tub. You can get exceptional results with this tub. It's about as difficult to install as other steel tubs are. You will rarely make an investment better than this one in home improvement. I will most definitely by buying and installing this tub again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lm Affordable deep tub
Simple affordable deep tub. We were worried about dents and chips due to others reviews but decided to take a chance because the price and depth were spot on. Once out of the box we gave it good look over, it was fine and in it went.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KB Check before you buy
The tub is pretty standard. It is more spacious than the aloha. Ask someone to open the box before you buy. I didn't and the tub was cracked and I had to return. When I went back and checked 2 were damaged before I found a good one.

The first tub we purchased was damaged, so we exchanged it and checked before we left for chips. We love this tub and can't wait to use it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JLO Love the deep inset of this tub and the looks. No flaws.
There were NO flaws on this tub. It was NOT bent or chipped. We purchased the tub for a diy and we brought it straight home very carefully. This tub was the deepest I could find for a soaker. It had an easy transitional design with a good incline for the back rest. The floor of the tub has a slide proof texture added and after the first bath it was not bothersome at all. We actually like it. Now, for some tips and one complaint. Con: The porcelain overlay (steel) is easy to scratch and chip.
Tips: Do not put a chair or a ladder inside this tub when you are tiling! You will damage the tub.
1. Place a blanket inside of the tub when tiling to keep your tile from dropping directly onto the porcelain.
2. Place a blanket into the tub with it being folded several times before placing a rubber footed step ladder or chair inside the tub and do not push it around. Pick it up and move it gently from end to end to avoid scratches and chips.
3. Place a small hand towel around the drain when installing to avoid scratching and chipping the porcelain. (we have a small pin size chip from drain install that will rust if not sealed) You can purchase a repair kit for $4 @ home depot.
4. I recommend placing insulation (wall) all around the tub on the inside. This helps your bath water stay hot longer and it will not have a hallow sound when your filling it. It will sound quiet and sturdy. I hope this review helps with your next install.
I am pleased with this tub. Once it was installed and the tub still looks beautiful I think it was all worth it. I am very pleased.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GaryP Got a great deal, but...
We thought we had purchased a nice tub at a nice price. It is comfortable with the back rest built in.
Heeded all the precautions during installation as far as keeping the surfaces covered and protected during the whole project. Used the cardboard packaging as directed plus a very thick comforter over that.
When thru with installation and the protective layers were removed, we discovered three pock marks on the porcelain finish inside the tub.
Evidently, the finish is not as durable as advertised, other wise these pock marks would never had happened.
