Deep Soak Drain For use with a variety of tubs
We are redoing the guest bath with bronze fixtures. Only one catch--the waste tube drain cover did not come in bronze. We went with artic white. It blends in perfectly. I love the tap on drain. No more pull chain lever that always gets stuck over the years. There are two tubes that are available with the deep soak tub. We went with this one on the advise of our contractor as it was far more adjustable than the other option which made the install easier. One caution--if the tub is about the same width as the bathroom, make sure that you can access the drain tube via the side wall. It is necessary for the final fit up.

Acceptable but not that good looking
This drain is unique in that it moves the overflow from the bottom of the cap to the top of the cap. This essentially increases the water level in the bathtub.
However, the overflow cap bulges out quite a bit into the tub. And the logo "American Standard" is very prominent on the overflow cap.
The popup drain is nice but it's large.
The pipes are all plastic.
The combination of the look/high price/and plastic led me to return this item.

My clients like deep soaking tubs. It is hard to find tubs with more than 12-14 inches of depth at all. If you can find one deeper, you usually have a choice of only one or two as far as the other factors go: material, style, etc. What this item does is it opens the door to more choices. you can get deep water (about 2" or more) in any tub. As far as the item itself, it is well made, fits well, and is very simple and reliable.

This was recommended by you website for the tub that I purchased elsewhere, however, you sell the same tub. The part that covers the punch out the the faucet would go into instead of the wall is TOO BIG and looks really dumb.
I did nt return it b/c the project was already in progress and it worked, just would have wanted something a little less obvious for that location.

Good idea but way too oversized
Like the idea, which is to give a relatively shallow tub a little extra depth for bathing. The push button drain is cool, too. HOWEVER, the overflow is ridiculously, even cartoonishly, large--squarish and sticks out. Looks way too oversized in the smallish tubs for which its purpose best suits it.

Easy to install
Just the drain I needed for my new bath tub. Glad I found the item at Faucets Direct with very quick shipping. I will always look first to your website for all my plumbing needs. Keep up the great work.

Deep Soak Drain is cheap
Made entirely of plastic with a very large plastic-bone colored drain cover, I was surprised that American Standard would have such a poor quality drain, as was my plumber. He replaced it!

Works well if installed correctly
Had a major leak because of not tighening down the rubber gasket - my bad.
