I hate the thought of a tub with texture in it that will be difficult to keep clean.

Does this tub have a textured bottom?

If so, what has been your experience in keeping it clean? Best cleaning solution/process?

Thanks!

Compatible with a deep water bath gadget?

This question is from Mendota 5 ft. Right-Hand Drain with Integral Apron Cast Iron Alcove Bathtub in White
Asked by
Anonymous
April 19, 2016
The overflow on this tub looks like it's pretty close to the top rim. Has anyone used a deep water bath (a gadget that raises the overflow height, giving you a deeper water depth) successfully with this tub?

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great bathtub Very solid, well made bathtub. Great depth- will be great for soaking in it ! December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bathtub Great tub with lots of room. I hate those "skinny" tubs. Weighs alot so you need several people to get it upstairs, make sure you have a dolly! January 18, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 21, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Product exactly what I expected. Love this tub. Perfect for small bathrooms. Perfect for the person who wants a deeper tub to soak in. June 18, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 1, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good tub, bad web site! This is a nice tub. The price was fair compared to others we looked at. But there were two errors on the website that made it difficult to order. February 21, 2012
