Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by smallTub Wrong sizing dimensions
We haven't had the chance to use the tub yet since our bathroom is stil being build so I cannot comment on the quality of the tub. I was however very disappointed with the sizing. We had a new bathroom built and were told to get a 5ft tub that would fit perfectly from wall to wall. When the tub went in our contractor had a build a 2 inch thick wall behind the tub (which does not look good since it sticks out from the rest of the wall). The tub measures at 57 1/2" instead of the stated 60" At first we thought it was a contractor mistaken however measuring the tub has shown it to be a product error. Since the walls are tiled and the bathroom is nearly complete we have to keep it but we are less that satisfied with the faulty tub sizing since our bathroom was build specifically to accommodate a 60" tub.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Very poor quality. It has ruined our new bath!
We should have known that this was a bad purchase when we had to return the first tub because it was chipped. We returned it and did not notice any flaws until it was installed and tile was in place around it. The porcelain is so thin you can see all 'barb'? work inside the tub, and it has a chip om the bottom edge that has rusted. Our new bath is less than a year old and this one tub has ruined the entire job! It is a big mistake!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tulsa The right choice.
The tub arrived in excellent condition. It was a replacement tub for a bathroom remodel. It fit perfect and I am told the install was fairly simple. I love the fact it is made in the USA. I have already enjoyed it numerous times. I also love the fact it is insulated and holds the water temperature well. I get out when I am ready. Instead of, when water gets cold and I had to get out in previous tubs. The depth of the is good but you can make it great by getting an overflow cover to get a few more inches of water. I have no regrets and I made the decision to purchase this Bootz tub.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BK chipped out of the box, twice
I bought the tub, got it home, my guy took it out of the box, and it was chipped. We exchanged it, opened the top at the store to try to make sure it wasn't chipped, took it home, opened the box more, and it was chipped under the stryofoam where we couldn't see, in the exact same spot as the chip on the first tub. I will not be using this manufacturer again and this time will return and not exchange it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Michael POOR QUALITY, I Should have listened!!!!
So I read the reviews and this tub and thought, meh, worth a gamble. First one came with a big chunk out of the side and the white porcelain was so think on the top you could see the black coating underneath. So I returned it, second tub came, same issue. Plus the bottom felt like sandpaper. So my bathroom project is now 3 weeks behind. I should have listened to the reviews. NOT AGAIN. The tub is garbage and there must be zero quality control when they make these cause I am baffled as to how something so poorly made gets boxed. (face palm). Learn from my mistake, buy something else.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Perfect size, excellent shipping and price, but manufacturer defects
My plumber recommended Mauicast by Bootz or Americast by American Standard for ease of installation and tub insulation. American Standard tubs were more like foot soakers to me and/or came in sizes that would not fit in my alcove. My hopes for the top-of-the-line Bootz product offered by HD were dashed when I opened the box and found three manufacturer defects: an obvious pitting enameled over, a bolt-like protrusion enameled over near the drain, and an area where the enamel did not adequately cover the underlayment. Granted, there are no chips, but I am going to return the tub and start over for my remodel.

I was looking for a mid-range tub and thought this was more of a lower end when we opened the package. There is a flaw in the finish and a chip we are hoping will be covered by the solid surface surround's overhang. We are patching it to try to ensure that it will not rust over time. It's not really white white but more off-white. I did not return and request another because of the deadline to finish this bath and the price I paid to the contractor just to pick it up from the store. Hopefully when the vanity arrives the color will be a decent match of whites. Not a big chip but still... (sorry for the poor quality pics).
On the plus side, the contractor said it went right in without a problem and it's deep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pleased I love, love my new bathtub!!
First off, I did not install this tub. My contractors did. They seemed to have a difficult time at first, for some reason, but after a lot of effort, they got it in. Apparently it was a really tight fit. With that said, I have had this tub for four months now and I absolutely love it!! It is nice and deep, and very comfortable when taking a bath. The tub is a nice bright white and cleans up beautifully. There is plenty of space to keep shampoo bottles and the like in the corners of the tub. Also, it seems to be very sturdy and well made. I can't say enough nice things about it. As for some other reviews that have complained that the tub is scratchy on the bottom and uncomfortable to bathe in, I do not agree. Yes, I can feel a slight roughness, but that is needed so I don't slip and slide when standing in the tub to take a shower. However, that roughness is not abrasive at all. I take a bath all the time with not even noticing it. All in all, I am very happy that I took the chance and spent the extra money on the Mauicast. I highly recommend it.
