Bellwether Collection 60" Three Wall Alcove Cast Iron Soaking Bath Tub with Integral Apron and Right Hand Drain
Kohler Bellwether Tub has flaws
The Tub in my opinion was a reject that somehow got past quality control. The front Apron side is about 1/4" lower than the back side, therefore making it virtually impossible to get a level reading. If I run a square along the drain (short) side along the rim it bows from the middle to the front. Therefore I have to cut my first row of tiles. Not what I wanted to do. Furthermore, if you rest the tub on the (level) floor, the 2 feet closest to the front side of the tub don't even touch the floor. There's about a 1/4" gap. Kohler states that this is all within ASNI acceptable range. I think it's an inferior product, and if I didn't pay $150 to have this 300lb tub hauled upstairs, I would drag it to the curb!

This comtepary tub looks awesome in our newly remodled bathroom. It's super heavy! About 6 from our construction crew to carry it. You really need to know that you do need those suggested tub drain. Due to the curve under the overflow. Another thing, you will need an extra long tub spout. The first I ordered only hit at the overflow. I choose the spout to match the handles of all the tub accessaries. Be ware- finding the extra long spouts are avaible at Faucet Direct. Very costly! Didn't find this out until tub was installed.

tub spout issue with this bathtub
Not mentioned in the specs available on line here is a NOTE that says this tub requires an extra long tub spout. The design of the front (and back) tub wall SLOPES from the deck, then drops in a straight line to the well. If your tub spout is not LONG enough to clear this slope, the water will hit the slope and the overflow drain rather than flowing straight into the tub.

Just what I was looking for
I wanted a sleek modern tub with clean lines and no baubles, decorative indentations or swooshes. This tub fit the bill. The finish was perfect.

A tub is a tub is a tub, but this one is very nice. It has generous sides to put things on and is simple and a good value.

Faster delivery than we could ever hope for!
We were in a time crunch to get the tub for our new bathroom and a little nervous with the 5-7 day delivery. The tub arrived the day after we placed our order! We couldn't be happier. The tub is beautiful too...
