5 1/2 ft cast iron alcove tub
I need to order a tub this week for my teenage daughters remodeled bathroom. I want a cast iron tub due to the durability, tub is on first floor on slab so weight is not a problem. Have only found three cast iron tubs that are 51/2 ft alcove tubs, the american standard spectra, Kohler Bellwether, and a Toto. The biggest issue I am struggling with is the water depth to overflow, seems like the AS spectra is 11", Kohler is 11 and 11/16 in and can not find the info on the Toto. On the American Standard website it says you can install their deep overflow drain to make water depth to overflow at 13 inches, has anyone ever done this? Any other comments to help me make a decision? If I had to pick a tub based on finish it would be the Kohler as nothing beats their cast iron look. But if I could get a 13 inch depth to the American Standard that might win over finish! My daughter loves to soak in tub.
