Answer: 
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 Read More

The unevenness is not easy to see in bright light, but is readily apparent in the darker indirect lighting of a bath tub. Read Less

Compatible with a deep water bath gadget?

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 5.0 out of 5 by 6 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 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
