Kohler K-505 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tub...very solid! Arrived with no damage or scratches. Tough to bring upsatirs, must weigh 400 lbs. My wife loves it though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we needed Earlier we had installed Koehler sinks in Mexican Sand. This tub matched perfectly. Arrived promptly. It is heavy. Also 18 wheeler could not navigate our long driveway so we offloaded to my pickup. I was then left with trying to get off truck, into house. So, plan ahead. Previous posters complained about the non-slip surface getting easily stained. I believe this problem has been solved as I had no problems even though it sat outside for two weeks.
