We've only had the new tub and surround for a few days, but we like them so far! Our contractor said it was easy to install, though they hadn't seen a surround with shelves on both ends before. No grout needed to seal the seems, so hopefully the built-in drainage system works really well. Clean lines, the tub feels big and secure - we are totally happy!

I researched many different types of tubs & wall surrounds and decided on this one. I was very happy with the quality. It was very sturdy and packed securely to avoid shipping damage. Once the wall studs were prepared, the install was a breeze. Everything lined up and went together perfectly. I've been using it for about a month now, and I'm very happy with the product.

Wasn't too difficult to install, I purchased the tub that goes with it and the hardest part was smashing out the old cast iron tub. I measure twice and made the template like the instructions advised and the holes for the existing faucet and handles worked out fine. We were back showering in no time.

I had a 40 yo tile-on- waterproof sheet rock bath fall apart and needed to fix it. I looked at the available options and decided to go with the Swan 'direct to stud' set.
At 76 yrs I'm not as fast as I used to be, so the tear out was the worst part of the job. I was also concerned about how it would fit on the cast iron tub that was there.
Once I got the area cleaned up and the existing drywall trimmed away, my wife(32) and I had no trouble putting the pieces in place.
I chose to cover the surrounding areas with 4 1/2" w strips of 1/4 tempered hardboard(from HD), and finished the job with a custom tinted paint(also from HD) that matched the existing wallpaper.
The wife loves it, and once the calking dried, we took a shower, and everything felt firm and secure.
I plan on getting another one for the other bath. A good, cool weather project for us.
The only thing I would recommend changing, is to put a dab of adhesive on each of the 6 attaching clips so that they don't fall off when attaching the side to the back panel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SRDS Decent product
Ordered this few months ago along with matching tub. Walls came in with no problem. Tub was cracked. Returned and ordered two more hoping that one would be in good condition. 2 weeks later both tubs came in cracked, again. Store manager was very apologetic and wanted to make something work. This wasn't Home Depot's fault but the manufacturer. All tubs were sent with no packing for protection, just a card board box. We kept the walls and found a tub that we made work even though it took a bit of extra work and extra time.
The walls look great and have lots of room to hold shower needs.
I emailed Swanstone Customer service but never heard back.

Looks great, color matches other brand of tub. Not too hard to install, with two persons. Second unit was ok to install. First one had to be sent back, for damages. Should be packaged better at factory.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by andrew SO far so good
I have had this shower installed for a couple of weeks, and am pretty please with it overall. If you are using a tub other then the matching one (i have and americast) you need to cut a couple of pieces off. Direct to stud mounting is quick, but it takes a little more time to do your drywall. In hindsight i would have notched out the studs so that the alcove mounted flush, we ended up firing the wall out so that the drywall didn't have to be on an angle, but notching it out would have been quicker and is probably a better way to do it. Most people just put the drywall over it and screw it down, which is probably fine but my contractor is picky and thats why he is good.
overall i like the product and am happy with my decision.
