Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TheSell Instructions lead to a poor install...
If you follow the instructions exactly, much of the pan flexes under foot. Rather than the three balls of concrete around the drain as recommended in the instructions, I added much more beneath the pan to avoid the movement that was creating the "creaking fiberglass sound". I chose "difficult to install" because much more concrete is needed than what is listed in the instructions.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KG Looks good
The first one had to be sent back. It was chipped and warped, the drain hole was too off center and even the Kohler name plate was not right. The second one was just about perfect though and it went in pretty easy. I followed the clear instructions to the letter and it is very nice. The tile installer had no issues with it during his install either.

This is a very nice looking shower pan, but I was disappointed with it's construction and what is required to install it. It's acrylic coated fiberglass over particle board with 5 four inch square pieces of particle board (the feet) that require a bed or leveling compound to set the shower pan on. Most shower pans are constructed this way, but I did the install myself and needed something more simple. I returned this product and purchased a FiberFab product which doesn't require leveling compound to install. If you are having it professionally installed then it may be OK, but I wanted a shower pan that felt very firm when standing in it and I was not confident after seeing how the Tresham is constructed that it would be solid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AmyF First one was damaged, second one was fine
The first one we ordered was cracked on the front, right bottom and another small crack in the coating in the front. We returned it and ordered a second one. That one did not have any flaws. It's a nice looking shower pan and looks good with the tile we chose. The plumber didn't have any issues installing it.
My suggestion would be to make sure you look it over real well before installing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NorthFork3 Beautifully Disappointing......
I love the looks of the base compared to others in the same size. It is built solid and is much heftier than most..... That being said, I am highly disappointed in Kohler. My original order took several weeks to arrive, which in itself is understandable, but upon close inspection it became very apparent that this base should have never passed quality control and should have been scrapped. The side and back tiling flanges were cut at varying thicknesses (wavy in appearance) and the the front apron area was 3/4" thick on one end and 1/16" on the other. It also measured 1/2" wider than the spec sheet, so it would not even fit into the 48 3/8" wide alcove. I returned it and ordered another (delaying the install another 2 to 3 weeks) and upon first inspection everything appeared to measure correctly, etc. until I went to dry fit the base.... the drain was not lining up as it should. I remeasured and that's when I saw it.... the drain hole was drilled off center by a full 1/2".... So another return for me.... moving the drain location by 1/2" is not an option in my case. In addition to that, even if the drain line could be moved, the drain connection would not seal correctly at the top of the base, which in turn would create a potential leaking issue. .... Let's hope 3 times truly is a charm. I do recommend this product; just posting this review as a heads up to possible delays. ... IF you get lucky and it arrives true and correct, it is beautiful and worth the extra money

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovetoremodel So far so good...
We have not actually had a chance to use this shower base yet as we are still working on our bathroom but so far we love it. Installation was a breeze, the only thing we had to modify was the amount of mortar that we used under the feet on the back of the base. We had to make those mounds about double the recommended depth so that the pan would be level. Other than that everything went in easily and the base feels extremely sturdy. Very pleased with our purchase and worth the extra money to get a quality product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chad Great product and delivery
I ordered this product because I wanted something sturdy and substantial and that's exactly what I got. There is no bend when you step in the shower. It looks great and fit perfectly. Plus, it arrived almost a week early to the store which was exceptional. I'm very happy.

I bought this Kohler shower pan and I am happy I did. It was expensive, but the quality really shows. It is heavy and thick and looks great. The install was easy. I ordered it to the store and it came in a week early. Couldn't be more happy with this purchase.
