Weight limit on tub

My husband is 6 foot 4 inches and 326 pounds, what is the weight limit on this tub? If this wont work, what do you suggest?
Asked by: Adorkable
I'm not sure of the weight limit. But I was also concerned about this issue. My grand daughters use this tub and have no problem. I weight about 265 lbs and it does give under my weight. So I probably wouldn't want someone my size using it every day.

Submerse 5 ft. Right Drain Soaking Tub in White is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 107.

We went through all the work of installing the tub and it cracked when my husband was standing in it getting ready to do the tile work. He only weighs 220 lbs. This tub should not crack that easily. Thank goodness it cracked now rather than after we had all the tile work done. Even if Kohler says they can repair it, that is not acceptable as I am sure it will crack again. We can never get all the hours back that we spent installing the tub and now we will need to pull it out and start all over again. What a waste of time. This tub should be a recall. The Kohler review on this website says this tub is sturdy and less prone to cracks. The main reason we bought this tub was the Kohler name. Never again will I buy anything from Kohler.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A real disaster for us! My husband and I are BEYOND heartbroken! We had just spent thousands of our very hard earned money to PROFESSIONALLY (all contractors we hired were licensed professionals) remodel some parts of our home, including our bathroom, and the very FIRST TIME the tub was used by my husband as a soak tub it CRACKED IN MULTIPLE PLACES at the drain and soaked our newly remodeled kitchen ceiling downstairs! I darkened the cracks in the enclosed photos to showcase the cracks better. We are so upset that words cannot express it.. I REALLY wish we had not gotten this product as this problem seems to be a MAJOR DEFECT of this product, based on all reviews we've just read. It made our remodel dream a complete nightmare.

Unfortunately, we have experienced the same issues as many of the unlucky previous reviewers here have already shared. We installed the tub as part of our our second-floor bathroom remodel exactly per specifications outlined in the installation manual, by a seasoned and professional installer. On the very first use, water was pouring from our downstairs ceiling into our family room due to a faulty drain. We had a professional plumber try to repair the issue only to confirm that the problem can only be remedied by tearing out the entire tub. This has caused not only thousands of dollars in repairs to the wall and floor tile in our newly remodeled bathroom, but we're also faced with hundreds of dollars in drywall repairs to our family room ceiling. Kohler hasn't offered to cover the cost of the repairs or the tub to this point, and judging by the previous reviews I guess I can't expect much from them in the way of financial reimbursement for this massive problem caused by their product. Last time I will ever purchase a Kohler product. I highly encourage you to avoid this tub at all costs. It looks great and the price is appealing, especially for the extra tub depth, but it will cost you in the long run.

MY CONTRACTOR INSTALLED THE TUB FOR THE DRAIN TO CRACK IN MULTIPLE PLACES WITHOUT EVEN BEING USED ONCE. IT LEAKED DOWN INTO MY BRAND NEW KITCHEN AND RUINED THE CEILING. I WISH I WOULD HAVE WENT ONLINE TO BUY THE TUB, I PICKED IT OUT DIRECTLY AT THE STORE. WHAT A NIGHTMARE! NOW I'M IN TOUCH WITH KOHLER AND THEY ARE SUPER SLOW TO RESPOND. AGAIN, DO NOT BUY THIS TUB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY SHOULD RECALL IT AND GIVE EVERYONE THERE MONEY BACK.

I bought this tub thinking most of the people complaining were install it wrong. I've been a plumber for over 30 yrs. I have never had a problem in the past with acrylic tubs, so I bought this and installed it in my own house. Here's a word of advice for all. Don't buy this tub!! Kohler you really dropped the ball on this one. Why didn't you support the acrylic around the drain and bond it to the base. Now I have a tub that will cost me THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS to remove and replace because of the cracks around the drain. This was not over tighten at all. All you had to do was spray a little fiberglass for support around the sides and the base mainly the drain area. You were so hung up on how light it was you forgot to make it sturdy. I must say after using and installing your products this is very disappointing. I await your reply.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS TUB!!!!! We have had the same issues as recent customers. There are cracks along the perimeter of the drain and the material of the tub is literally paper thin in this area. One of the reasons we selected this tub was because it said that it stands up to the rigors of installation. This is very upsetting, as we have been waiting for months to finally have our bathroom completed. We were planning on listing our house next week, in preparation for a cross-country move-which is now impossible. Kohler told us that the area cannot be repaired, so the tub has to be replaced, which also means tearing out parts of our new tile and floors. I don't usually write reviews, but I would not want anyone else to have to deal with such a disaster! Kohler customer care has been helpful thus far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst! Stay away! No warranty for cracks After 3 months of use we got cracks around drain. Its badly leacked down to the basement. Customer service said that tge cracks around drain are not covered by warranty and its most likely caused by overthighten drain. Really? Its cheaply made product! Stay away! Now we need to renovate our bathroom again. Wasted money and time because of Kohlers piece of junk!!
