Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Franco Nice curved design and good depth
I was looking to replace my 30 yr old cast iron shower tub with something wider and deeper. This was a great option for the price. I looked at other tubs but they were too expensive for what I wanted.
This is a good product and it could be better if it wasn't that it felt a little flimsy at first. Not too heavy and light plastic, but once installed, it looked great and couldn't tell other wise. It's very spacious and it has a nice depth to soak in.
This tub looks great with the curved frameless shower doors or a curved rod.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by annieca107 Too narrow at the bottom. :(
Unfortunately, I am not happy with this product. I love the outside curved design however the interior space where you stand for a shower is very narrow. On top of that, with the tub surround that we chose - also a Delta product- it is a poor design that gives you very little elbow room because of the design and placement of the shelving. And, because the unit is not very tall, the shower head had to be placed lower, making it awkward for the angle to wash hair and I am not a very tall person.
I would not recommend this to anyone. One pro- being a new fiberglass unit, it is so much easier to clean than my previous 40+ year old tub. I was so excited to have a whole new look, but this has been a very poor choice for us.
I guess I did not do my homework on researching this and went only by looks/ aesthetics.

Purchased this tub at Home Depot to install in a bathroom renovation. It was so flimsy after installation (with the included apron support) that my contractor recommend we remove the tub and replace it with something better. Don't waste your money.

This tub was so flimsy that after it was installed our contractor insisted we buy a new tub since it was so bad! Very disappointed!

Looks very nice. Has a small crack that was discovered upon opening the box so I suggest opening at store. Crack was in lip and started into back of tub but I was able to repair without reordering. Disappointed though.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BoeingAggie Fair Quality Tube but NOT for the novice DIY
You will need a 6" 1.5 inch diameter extension for standard overflow/drain kits.
The box says the drain center line is at 13.4 inches, the manual says 14.5 inches. I'm glad I measured because it was actually 13.75 inches.
The skirt support has to be glued to the skirt. Good luck. After a few tries, plastic epoxy held well enough. Delta doesn't specify what type of adhesive to use and when I asked them, they never responded.
I attached two 2 x 4 pressure treated boards to the floor about 12 inches long near the ends of the skirt to act as backing when the tub was installed. This worked well to make the skirt straight over its whole length (it was bowed slightly).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AverageDude Great SOAKING tub - Looks great!!!
I got this tub to used specifically as a soaker tub. It is a standalone unit. I am not using it in conjunction with a shower.
Some of the things that are more important since it is going to used as a soaking tub...
The tub is comfortable.
It has higher than average sides.
The bottom seems to have an anti-slip texture.
Includes a ledge along the inside sides to rest your arms.
It has a nice overall size.
If you want a tub that is going to used as a tub, not just a water catcher for your shower, then this is the tub! I'm sure it would work great in combination with a shower also, but it excels as a soaker!!
On another note. Installation was pretty straight forward. If anything, I would say it is a little easier to install than some other tubs. According to the installation instructions, no mortar bed is required. So I didn't use a mortar bed underneath and I am very pleased with the sturdiness feeling of the tub.
