It's cast iron so it is rigid. No give at all and it is very heavy. Great tub.

Is this tub totally for an alcove? I need a cast iron tub that will fit in a corner with only two walls.
Asked by: Vet
This particular tub is made for three walls. You should still be able to locate a corner tub which only requires two walls.

What are the crated dimensions of this item? As shipped and before uncrating, will it fit through a 27" wide door opening at the job site?
Asked by: kba293
The tub was delivered uncrated and without the paperwork. It came on a pallet. It is very heavy. You should consider a few things; 1st. is your floor level, 2. are the joist under the tub cracked or broken. They may need to be reinforced. I love my tub.

Bellwether 5 ft. Rectangle Right Drain Bathtub with Integral Farmhouse Apron in White is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this tub from a local plumbing store. As others have stated, the tub is very heavy. M... I purchased this tub from a local plumbing store. As others have stated, the tub is very heavy. My husband and I were able to move the tub from the garage to the bathroom using a flat dolly (purchased from Harbor Freight). It was so heavy, the wheels on the dolly left marks on our wood floor. As a word of advice, protect your floors if you're rolling it in! As others have described, the sides have a ripply effect, but I don't mind it. In fact, I kind of like it because it reflects light onto my tile floor and looks like glistening water. Another piece of advice: protect all sides of your tub with towels or something thick (not just paper) while plumbing and tiling are in progress. We covered the tub in thick paper, yet still, our tub was scratched in a few areas. The tub is pretty shallow. If you are a tall person, it's awkward trying to get both your legs under water if you're taking a bath. The tub keeps your bath water very warm for a long time! Some people worry that cast iron is too cold. Don't listen to those naysayers. As soon as the warm water hits the cast iron, it warms up immediately. No need for radiant heat or insulation underneath the tub. All in all, I love my solid, sturdy, cast iron tub! You knock on the side, and it sounds like a tank. Try knocking on the side of a plastic tub--completely hollow and flimsy.

Narrow too, A larger person would be hard pressed to fit comfortably in this tub. Low soaking depth, I turned the overflow upside down which helped. I do like the finish and not skid bottom as well as clean ability which is why I chose cast iron over fiberglass/acrylic.

We had a deep tub but found it difficult to get in and out, and we almost never needed so much water for soaking. This is just the right tub for us. It may be hard to see from the picture but this tub is square with shaper lines which gives it a very modern look. Well built too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tub for kids and showering Based on reviews I read, I had two worries about this tub: It wouldn't be white, and it would have strange ripples along the side. Neither of these has been an issue. It's true the tub is not bright, bright white, but in my opinion it is still white and matches our white Kohler toilet and sink just fine. It also has white subway tile around it and appears to match. The ripples are there but don't bother us in the least--they are subtle and barely noticeable. We are delighted with this bathtub. It has clean, simple lines, is modern and low-profile, and is great for bathing kids and for use as a shower. It feels quite roomy given the dimensions. I would not recommend it as a soaking tub as it is not deep and the sides are not very slanted. (These are two things we appreciate about it but others may not.)
