does this tub come with a drain?

Answers

No It took 4 different deliveries to get me one that wasn’t damage and hours on the phone. Just buy it from a plumbing supply house. These big box stores could care less.

Stress fractures
I’ve had this tub 3 years and already it has 2 stress fractures - 1 by the drain and the other on the side of the tub. I purchased a kohler product because I always heard of their good quality. Boy, was I wrong. I spent thousands on a full tile shower to the ceiling. Looks like I’ll have to spend that much more again. I have never been so angry! Why does stuff not last anymore!? I do not recommend this product - I do jot recommend this brand! They need to make this right. I don’t want just a new tub, I want the thousands in labor and material it will cost to fix my bathroom!

Also cracked!
Like the previous reviewers, mine has also cracked so have to have it pulled out to install another tub. Which entails tearing out tile and part of the wall so it can be lifted out. I chose Kohler for the quality, never would have expected this to happen. Unfortunately will cost thousands and a mess to correct the situation

Disappointed
I purchased this tub in November of 2018. I loved the size and depth of it. Summer 2020 I notice a small crack which at first looked like a scratch. Well the crack quickly grew to two small sections on the tub. I had to place plumbers tape on the cracks to keep the tub from leaking in the ceiling below it. I lifted up the tape to expose a section of the crack for this review.

Don’t waste your money!
When I purchased my home, the bathroom was dreadful. After a total rehab, the bathroom was beautiful! Fast forward 3 to years, everything is perfect except for this bathtub. A giant 6 inch crack in the bottom, and the floor is so spongy it feels like we are going to fall through the floor!!!! Now I have to tear out the tile in the shower, and most likely replace the subfloor, to replace the tub.... please don’t waste a penny on this.

Terrible
We had our bathroom done 3 years ago and within 6 months it started getting cracks. I was just sitting down to look at new tubs and can see this is obviously a problem with this tub. Since we had someone else do the work I don’t have the purchase information and that guy was no help. Looks like I’m just buying a new tub. Please don’t waste your money.
