Kohler K-838 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speedy Delivery I was looking for a tub with clean lines with no design on it. I found and ordered the Kohler K-838 Bellwether Bath cast iron tub 60" L x 30 1/4" W. It was deliver in 5 days safely. It has the clean lines that I wanted and a good flat floor space when you stand in it. One review I read said it needed an extra long tub spout I used a regular 5" spout and it fits just fine. I think this tub would be a nice accent for a contemporary to transitional design concept or any other for that matter. Nice tub, I'm enjoying it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This tub is far too narrow to be comfortable The best thing about this tub is the non-slip strips on the bottom. But they quickly become disclored with my hard, well water. Because of the water (not the tubs fault) the tub is hard to clean. But the real issue, is it is far too narrow. I can't get both shoulders into the water because it is so narrow. I can't put my foot on my knee to wash my foot, my knees are too wide for the tub. This tub would be fine for bathing a child. I guess it's okay for showers, but I'm a bath person. I'm very disappointed in it, particularly because of the cost. My advice" do not buy this tub. Now, I'm stuck with it. You don't want to be.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible finish We had to look at two units to realize that the finish on this product is not up to Kohler's usually beautiful finish standards. The surface looks very bumpy even on the horizontal ledge across the top of the front apron.
