Corner Tubs


I'm considering installing a Corner Tub unit as part of major renovation.

Another member suggested some of the downsides of a corner tub in this thread.

I was hoping to get opinions from installers or homeowners who have experience with corner tubs. Any feedback is appreciated.

Also, these are the tubs that I'm currently considering:

American Standard 2775.018WC.020 Cadet 5-Feet by 5-Feet Corner Whirlpool with Everclean and Hydro Massage System-I, White - About $1600 w/ heater, looks like the most comfortable

Kohler 5454 - Also about $1600 - 54" instead of 60" to save space


Ariel Bath AM168 with waterfall faucet - $2500 but I wouldn't need to buy a faucet and has ozone disinfection, lcd touch screen, etc...


Any info on any of these models would also be appreciated. Thanks!

Only draw back to any deck mounted tub is that you can not use it as a shower----

If you don't hope to use it as a shower---they are a fine style of tub--

What kind of hot water heater do you have? Hope it is either HUGE or a tankless one.

Thanks Mike.

I realize that it won't work as a shower and I'm OK with that.

Have you heard any complaints about them being uncomfortable or hard to get in and out of?

Tank less. Good point though. Thanks!

You need to find a showroom with one you can get into---the ones you posted were pretty big so I think you should be O.K.---But that is going to be there for a LONG time--so I'd want to try one on for size.

You don't have your location in your profile---so--you will have to look around---Kohler has a lot of showrooms scattered around the country--so I'd start with Kohler.
