Does Kohler offer lead-free porcelain glaze?

This question is from Bellwether 5 ft. Left Drain Bathtub with Integral Apron in White

October 20, 2016
A friend tested a new Kohler cast iron tub glaze in April 2016, and it was positive for lead. She contacted Kohler customer service. After initially saying, "no, that would be illegal!" they agreed to investigate. They then confirmed that Kohler glazes contain lead. Do you plan to offer lead-free glazing?

Answer: 
Laura, that is a very lawyerly and misleading response. Firstly, Kohler knows all their cast-iron tubs contain lead in the glaze. Secondly, Kohler customer service routinely denies it when asked, unless pressed by a knowledgeable customer. Then a "specialist" is consulted, and Kohler admits they all contain lead.

Laura, that is a very lawyerly and misleading response. Firstly, Kohler knows all their cast-iron tubs contain lead in the glaze. Secondly, Kohler customer service routinely denies it when asked, unless pressed by a knowledgeable customer. Then a "specialist" is consulted, and Kohler admits they all contain lead. Kohler customer service has been repeating this lie for over a year, despite knowing the truth. Lastly, Kohler is fully aware that a loophole in US law means that tubs are not legally bound to be lead-free. It is done purely on the honor system. While what Kohler is doing may or may not be legal, it is most definitely unethical. I don't think your customers would be thrilled to learn their kids are taking baths in lead-laced tubs.
Advice to customers: if you don't believe me, just buy an inexpensive lead-test kit. Wipe the cotton test swab on the tub, and you will see it indicates lead in the finish, which can easily leach in to water. Particularly when the tub is worn or chipped.

The overflow drain is at an angle, what drain kit is recommended to fit this tub?

This question is from Bellwether 5 ft. Right Drain Bathtub with Integral Apron in White
Asked by
Boston, MA
Read all my Q&A
July 16, 2016
The picture does not show it, but when my plumber say the tub, he mentioned the angle that the wall is at from the drain to the overflow drain. We are replacing a shower stall with a shower/tub combo, so demolition will be taking out almost everything. This tub was delivered by another seller in a defective condition, the enamel was damaged, perhaps during delivery. So timing on the project has been delayed to get the replacement. So I don't want to get the wrong drain kit to delay this again.

I had purchased a Moen T90331BN Tw Push-N-Lock Trim Kit, but this may not work with the drain that I will need. Please help.

Customer Reviews

Bellwether 5 ft. Right Drain Bathtub with Integral Farmhouse Apron in White is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kohler tub - Looks good, delivery not so good The plumbers had to fight to get this in - but it's not the tub's fault. Overall looks good and solid. Other reviewers have noted ordering online and then getting a barely packaged tub. It's true. The tub was still on the pallet, but absolutely no other packing materials. Something had obvoiusly fell into it and it had several large scratches. Called and got a credit, but wish I hadn't had to go thru that step. Looks like the credit will be enough to get it repaired, which is pretty minor and I think he can be done with a touch up kit. Home Depot customer service guy was very nice about it. I wish Kohler would do a better job packaging because this is definitly a know problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Well Built Tub Purchased this tub online for a bathroom renovation. Tub is very heavy. Delivery people managed to move the tub to our patio until it could be installed (about 3 days). The finish on the tub is great. Seems smooth and clean. I did not install the tub myself but our contractor did not seem to have any issues with it. The tub is solid and not cheap feeling.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Off white color!! Not as advertised. BEWARE In the picture and descriptions it was sold as white. But when arrived it looked really offwhite so much that its so obvious. Next to my white allegro subway tiles it looks dirty. I was disappointed. It is however sturdy and really really heavy. Took about 3-5 men to move it.

We purchased 3 of these tubs through Home Depot, one at a time, all 3 tubs were cracked or damaged in some way. This tub takes about a week to receive, so that is 3 weeks in a remodel I will never get back. When I reached out to Kohler, they stated I could request special packaging through Home Depot and receive another tub in another week. I went to a local plumbing supply house and purchased an unblemished tub on the first visit. I do love the tub now that is in. It is so solid and really has a beautiful look to it. However, this makes me question the level of Home Depot quality and standards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek Classy Bathroom Remodel Altogether, we really love the clean lines and simple design of this standard size tup. We opted for in store pick up, but I would recommend having the tub delivered. Five of us carried it up some stairs inside our house and another three moved it into the bathroom on the day of the install. Great assistance at HD at time of pick-up and the tub was well packed for shipment/transportation.

Love the clean sleek line of the tub - works well with my contemporary style bathroom. The top corners could be a little wider but not a big deal for me as I have built-in shampoo/soap caddy. The shade of white is fairly bright but not Arctic white. Decent interior width for showering or bathing. This bathtub deserves 4.5 stars

Very clean lines with nice details. Home Depot provided fantastic customer service when the first tub arrived damaged. It was a great customer experience and a very nice product. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice tub Nice tub. As advertised. Difficult to fit wider shampoo bottles in corners, along ledge because they are narrow. Took about a week and a half to get delivered. That's a long lead time.
