what is the difference between this model, Mendota K505, and the Bellwether K875?

I am in the market for a cast iron bathtub 60"x32" and as tall as possible. Please let me know. My biggest concerne is quality. Thanks, Maria

Interesting. if the K-875 provides more bathing depth but all else is equal, then why the $300 price differential?

Specifications say this tub model K-506-0 does not have slip resistant bottom. Does this mean the tub bottom is smooth?

Asked by: Anonymous
The tub bottom is smooth. If you're thinking of buying a Kohler Mendota, beware that Kohler is having quality-control issues with the enamel coating of their cast-iron tubs (I've submitted a review that describes this problem in detail). The coating in our brand-new tub is thin and nonuniform, so that the tub has an uneven blue cast in many places where the underlying iron is showing through. The unevenness is not easy to see in bright light, but is readily apparent in the darker indirect lighting of a bath tub.

I had to order this tub twice because the first tub had pits in the surface finish. The second tub has two large 'dimples' in the finish (but at least there was a finish covering the cast iron). Tub manufacturing quality IS NOT Home Depot's problem, but their telephone customer service was quite slow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivered and installed The plumber who installed the tub (it took 4 people to bring into the house and place into its spot) complained the whole time during the installation! But after it was installed, he "fessed up" - this is the best tub for the money, it will last for 30 years, and it is what he had installed in his house. There that is A+ testimony. Cudo's to Home Depot for the ease of purchase and delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TUB!!! My parents bought this tub when they redid there bathroom 5 years ago. I always said when I buy my house and redo the bathroom I'm buying this tub. So here I am buying it... The design and depth of this tub are great. Its so deep, I can't wait to take a bath!!!! Plus you can't beat the price for a cast iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bathtub Very solid, well made bathtub. Great depth- will be great for soaking in it !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality, Design, Finish Invested in this cast iron tub due to Kohler reputation and years of service of previous tub we replaced- Gold Kohler tub from the 70's. Deep soaking feature is another plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in Our 1933 House When we reonnovated our bathroom we wanted to maintain the quality and design of the original tub without spending a fortune. We saw options in the thousands and then I happened upon this tub. I highly reccomend it for its design, heft, quality, and price. I agree with a previous reviewer that it's not easy to install and does indeed take four people to get up the steps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product exactly what I expected. Love this tub. Perfect for small bathrooms. Perfect for the person who wants a deeper tub to soak in.
