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 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.

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.

various "chipped" places on rim. Fortunately, chips are not in an area that will be exposed to water. Manufacturer needs better quality control and/or to provide touch up paint.

I read all the reviews here before my purchase and I inspected the tub before I took it home. No scratches, chips or warping in my tub. I paid for tub installation and it has been perfect for 2 months now. It sure seems like a great tub for the price. It's deeper than the other we had and I'm most satisfied!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disapppointed Buyer Beware
I bought this tub when renovating my bathroom because it was deep and my daughter likes to take baths. After installation it looked very nice. My daughter took a bath and immediately drained the water. I went to clean it a few minutes later and saw a "ring around the tub." NOTHING will get it out. I contacted Home Depot and they sent someone to my home to try and clean it and then took pictures when the stain remained.
So I have new bathroom with a tub with a bathtub ring. I have been offered to return the tub. That is impractical because it is installed in a bathroom above a crawl space. I have also been offered a gift card to Home Depot for the price of the tub. None of these two can compensate for the awful looking ring.
Finally when you step in the tub you get a squishy feeling and sound like it is not sturdy. I have no idea why that is but I wish I never bought this thing. After reading all the negative reviews I guess the good thing is ...it didn't have any chips.
