Questions & Answers

Has the Issue with the tub Cracking been resolved? I'm thinking about buying one today.

Asked by: MOE
We just installed one and it is fine. I am wondering if those having a problem with cracking have properly installed the tub according to instructions. When installed with a mortar bed, this tub is rock solid and should not crack.

Has the cracking around the drain defect been fixed? Seems to be a very common problem.

Asked by: Dave
Mine cracked today after 3 months and only 20 uses. I wish I read these reviews prior to install and after custom tiling.

Asked by: Tony
The instructions tell you to add a construction adhesive under the load points of the tub.

will any deep soak drain fit this tub?

Asked by: Red
We got this one: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Sioux-Chief-1-1-2-in-White-Plastic-Bath-Drain-Kit-in-Chrome-Trim-973-0200C01/100677379 We also got a flexible PVC trap adapter, so we were able to manipulate the overflow drain to the proper place with ease

KOHLER Submerse 5 ft. Left Drain Soaking Tub in White is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 225.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Installed this tub in our hall bath, looked great at first. Then when we started to remodel our ... Installed this tub in our hall bath, looked great at first. Then when we started to remodel our master bath, our hall bath began to get heavier use. The tub has lost it's shine. Worse is the but acrylic has now cracked around the drain and leaks to the floor below. It seems that the acrylic is not "close enough" to the actual tub frame so the acrylic liner flex and cracks develop. We have dis-assembled the drain and repaired the drain area in an attempt to override having to pull the entire tub out and replace it. The issue is not that HD would replace it or not, it is the work involved in pulling the tub out, re-tiling and the 20+ hours of work for a low quality product. To repair the tub's acrylic liner we drilled small holes at the end of each crack to prevent the cracks from creeping. Then we used an 1 1/4 couple wrapped in wax paper to allow us to fill the cracked area with epoxy. then we topped the epoxy fill with a white acrylic repair epoxy. This has worked so far.

Bought this tub without reading its reviews only because the one we were looking for was unavailable. The design was nice and Kohler reputation seemed like a safe bet. The tub is thin and light like many people say but I don’t think it’s a lot thinner than other acrylic tubs of the same range. The real problem, and the cause of so many cracks on the drain area, is the flawed design of its undertub reinforcement. Look at the pictures attached. The black plastic flange is way too tall and any waste elbow (at least the ones available at regular hardware stores) will bump onto it. Even if you add a thick gasket gasket, the elbow will hit the flange. So when you tight the drain from the top side it will rock the pipe, create unnecessary strain on the acrylic and sooner or later crack it. I’m glad we realized this issue before putting it in. The reviews were scary enough but seeing the cause for them just confirmed the concerns. This tub is going back to the store f ASAP. Trust the reviews, do not buy this tub!

Unit was not as described on contained literature. Installation instructions showed different unit than was contained in packing box. Unit has a rolled edge, rather than a flat edge. Therefore concrete backing board and tile surround will not set flat and will have a tendency to crack, both the tub and the grout, when tub edge is screwed to studs. Installation tech said he could make it work with some changes. My problem is with future problems with installation. A call to Kohler Customer Service did not result in any satisfaction. They appeared to not understand the problem. Customer Service Tech said he would send proper literature. Still waiting after one week. I am sure I can return the unit to Home Depot for exchange as it is not yet installed, but I wanted a Kohler product, and the necessity of repacking and transporting back to the store and delays in finishing job are a dissapointment.

We purchased this tub when remodeling our master bath because it was nice and deep and looked stylish. 6 months later we returned it to Home Depot because the sides were buckling inward along with obnoxious sounding creaking every time you moved around while taking a shower. Home Depot and Kohler wouldn’t honor the warranty because it wasn’t installed by a Home Depot installation person. We purchased another assuming the first was defective. Even the new tub is creaky and sounds cheap. Now after another 18 months the second tub is cracked at the far end from the drain. (I assume a shampoo bottle must’ve dropped or something to crack it in that location) and I’m blown away that the workmanship is so cheap that this second tub is leaking and needs to be replaced. This will be the second time that we will completely remove and reinstall a Kohler Submerse tub along with the expenses of new tile, etc. I would never buy Kohler again after this experience.

I purchase this tub on September 15,2019 last night 10/8/19 i found a crack. So Disappointed we took our time installing (2 weeks before placing) to make sure all our issues would have been addressed....All the hard work and a few weeks of using the tub and Crack... UGHHHHH !!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Base Cracked - Not Sturdy After 3 years of use, the base cracked from regular use. We have received quotes of $400 to repair this tub. The base is not sturdy. There is not enough support under the bathtub for long term use. Do not buy the bathtub or it will cost you more to repair it than the price of the tub itself.

We are having the same cracking issues as others who have reviewed this tub. Our tub was installed in 2017, and in just that short amount of time has developed several small cracks. The cost to pull this tub and redo the tile is going to be significant. Very disappointed.

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.
