Haven't had the tub long, but I can say that it is a beautiful addition to my new bathroom remodel. During construction, there was not one worker who came in that didn't comment on how great this tub looked. Not one! I had originally planned to have a drop in tub installed but because of space limitations, I decided to go with this freestanding tub. I chose it after hours of relentless research to find the most cost efficient deep soaking tub. That fit the space I was working with. My only fear was that this is acrylic and freestanding and may not hold the water temperature warm as long as I'd like. (I was very wrong) This tub holds the heat much longer than my old cast iron original bathtub did. I am extremely pleased and surprised. I do not notice any heat loss at all with this tub. It looks stunning in my new bathroom. It is the focal point, as it should be! I cannot say long-term how this tub does, but for now, I am in love with my new bathtub.
