Archer Collection 60" Drop In Soaker Bath Tub with Armrests, Lumbar Support and Reversible Drain
The tub arrived well packaged, thanks to the excellent service of FaucetDirect. But when I installed it, I noticed that the front panel had a hairline crack. I was a bit disappointed, but it was a minor issue (hoping it would not develop into a bigger crack) to ask for a replacement at that time. Now it is 2 weeks after install and I am seeing 2 more hairline cracks. Though I had tilers install tile over the tub, 100% confident none of them were crazy enough to hit it or stand on top at the very edge of the tub to cause this crack. Also today, I dropped an item on the tub (not sharp, but it had an edge) and a penny sized part of the acrylic coating just chipped off. Unbelievable!!
So many cracks and a chip, I am now replacing the unit. But given that this piece looks very modern and is pretty cheap, I am still planning to replace with the same model.

Great tub, good purchase
We had the stub installed about a month ago, and its a great product. We love the drop in and the low profile, so its good and easy for the kids to get in and out of. I like the surface on the bottom is textured a bit to avoid slipping, and the almond color is exactly what we needed. The overflow because its horizontal requires you to buy the corresponding piece that as mentioned is a bit more expensive than the standard piece, but it looks great and I think worth it in my opinion. Very satisfied.

Colors are off, aremrests are worthless
The "armrests" are so narrow that they are worthless. The color scheme is off as well. I have a Kohler almond sink and it is definitely a different color than the almond tub. The almond tub has a pinkish hue to it, the sink beige.
The slotted overflow was next to impossible to find in oil rubbed bronze and a ripoff as well. When it did arrive it was black, not oil rubbed bronze. If you have any oil rubbed bronze fixtures don't expect them to go together.
I would have returned this tub if I had the time to wait for another one to arrive.

my wife's soaking tub
We are remodeling our master bath, and my wife wanted a deep soaking tub for our bathroom. This was recommended by our contractor, and we are very pleased with the choice. Nice and deep with pretty vertical ends allowing her to streatch out and relax.

This is a wonderful acrylic tub that is exceptionally deep in comparison to the competitors in this price range. As always customer service was phenomenal! I am 4th time returning happily customer .
Kudos for keeping these jobs in the US!
So far, it has been a smooth sailing, or should I say soaking!

I bought this tub because the W hotel in Austin TX has them. They looked great. Unfortunately, this tub has a nubby texture which takes away from the sleek look. The pictures do not shows this.
