Great tub once everything is installed correctly.
Quality is great but you can see in some places that the fiberglass is too thin. The biggest problem was the drain . Also leveling the tub was a difficult, had to use two thin plastic shims on two corners.
There are two different drains made for this tub, one is plastic/cable operated and the other is brass and metal lever/spring assembly inside it. I went with the brass one and it is terribly frustrating getting the rod length and drain height adjusted correctly. The instructions are worthless to some degree and it just takes ALOT of trial and error. I spent and hour+ installing/adjusting the drain to the tub before tub installation to figure it out and get it close. Then after the tub was installed it took another hour+ just for adjustment not installation. You literally have to assemble and dissemble over and over, took me about 15 tries to get it decent. You could get the brass drain and a normal manually operated valve and get rid of all the linkage junk but it's expensive and shouldn't have all those issues. There may be other soaker tub drains that would work with the tub but the angle might not be correct where it bolt to the overflow.
Leveling the tub was difficult because one of the legs that needed a shim was the hardest to reach with the tub installed. Getting the right size shim was difficult because they were so small. I used liquid nails instead of a bed of mortar. I insulated the bottom of the tub with 1' Styrofoam so the bed of mortar was not possible. I wanted to insulate the tub from the cold concrete .
I also insulated all around the tub with R-19 insulation, it stays warm for a good while, I really think it helped.
I used this tub as opposed to the one with the built in apron because I thought it would look better and also since my bathroom is the width of the tub getting an apron tub in place without ripping out a lot of sheet rock seemed impossible. The old tub had to come out in pieces, specifically one corner of the apron broken off where it hit a wall stud.
Overall, now that it's in place and the tile work is done the whole family is really enjoying it, it really makes the small bathroom a lot nicer.
Just in case any one was curious, those are two 1/4' glass recessed shelves. I had the glass cut 24" wide and 3.5" deep(wall stud depth). Recess is made of hardi backer, waterproof membrane, and of course tile. 100 percent silicone sealing the glass/holding the shelves to the tile.

A client ordered this tub to replace a sunken oval tub. First off, the dimensions listed have this tub at an assembled depth of 60 inches. That is the assembled LENGTH. 5 feet would make for an extremely deep tub.
The depth is 18 inches. When installed at grade, the homeowner is required to step up 18 inches and over the side to get in the tub.
If installed below grade, the step over the edge would be shorter, but then unsafe as the floor of the tub would be below the level of the floor.
Allows for a nice deep soak.

we have put in about 6 to 8 of these tubs and we were very happy with the installation process and our clients love them- its about the best you can get in this price range for top mounted soaking tubs

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EmmyL Wonderful tub!
I bought this for a master bath remodel I had been dreaming about for 7 years. Wonderful tub! Very deep so it is a good soaking tub and the side ledges make wonderful armrests as I read in the tub at the end of a long day. The drain is not included which was a surprise and the drain shown in the picture is a $200 Kolher drain. I would have given it 5 stars except for the drain.
