Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jackpot Great soaking tub
Archer tub fits in well in master bath remodel. Tub is fairly deep and not overly wide so utilizes less water and overflow is situated high in the tub and is attractive. Old tub was six foot and massive Jacuzzi tub. New one allowed for install of small shelf on side and rear of tub. Overall pleased with choice/value of this Kohler product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grouchy Nice looking, solid, extra deep tub.
We ordered this tub partly because it went well with the Craftsman/Mission style of our older (1918) house. We had it installed by a contractor for our bathroom remodel. He wanted to just use the adhesive installation process, but I insisted that he also place the tub on a mortar bed. I'm glad that I did. The tub sits nice and solid, does not flex at all in use that I can detect. (other reviews I had read complained about it flexing. -- Mortar bed cures that!.) The stepped style of the inside of the tub makes it look narrower than most, but we have found it to be plenty wide enough for our needs (but we shower, rather than soak most of the time). The specifications for this tub say that it is acrylic. When it arrived, I looked underneath, and it looked like fiberglass. Closer examination revealed that it is actually acrylic -- about 3/16" thick, backed by fiberglass reinforcement. So the fiberglass is what you see on the underside but acrylic is the user surface that you deal with. We do like this tub. The only drawback is that it is a little difficult for my very short wife to step into because it is a little taller than the average bathtub. We put grab handles at both ends of the tub to aid getting in and out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by robvt52101 Excellent tub!
I have installed three of these for renovation clients. They are very happy with them. The slotted overflow plus the 20" height of this tub makes for a really deep water depth, unlike standard tubs. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Izzy HOME DEPOT PLEASE INCLUDE ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR THIS TUB
Before you buy this tub, make sure you read the related documents. You do need to purchase the specific drain set-up for this tub. It comes in either PVC or Brass. Check the Kohler website for more information. On top of it, you can't purchase it though HD, which as a DIYer, I like to have every thing shipped or ready to go together. HD, please include the supporting / related projects and adjust these ads so that all required parts are include or the consumer is made aware.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Amy Beautiful to look at but get cast iron!
Tub ledge bent and separated from the grout when I stood on it to paint the ceiling. Should not have done that but I didn't even think about it. I'm about 145lbs. We were worried our contractor had installed it wrong and called Kohler. They said proper installation would not have prevented it from bending. Our contractor is going to regrout it but we have decided to go with cast iron in the future. It is more onerous to install but the tub doesn't cost any more and will last forever. We are worried about the longevity of this tub. I'm also wondering how I clean to the top of the tile without standing on the tub.
I give it 3 stars because it is beautiful and deep. Would recommend if you are set on acrylic.
