We have one in our house, and we like it. I would have preferred the model with an integrated overflow, but it wasn't available in the time we needed it. Go to the AS Web site, drill down through the professional side, and (if you have Adobe Reader) you can get the specifications and installation instructions for the Americast tubs.
: Does anyone have any experience with American Standard's Americast Bathtubs? They are somewhat cheaper and lighter than a cast iron one; but if it will crack and discolor, I will spend the extra money to get a cast iron tub. Thanks
