We have a Kohler Devonshire standard size whirlpool. Paid about $599 on sale at HD about 5 years ago. DH just said last night it was the best thing we did in remodeling our house. Works great and a reasonable price.

Check with some of the plumbing supply stores in your area & ask about floor model or warehouse stock they may have at a reduced price. We paid ~1/10 of the then current retail price for our tub as a floor model & we found that many of the plumbing houses buy "show models" from the manufacturers that they then sell at greatly reduced prices.

Hope this helps!

we've only checked out one plumbing supply place and were pretty disappointed about the price vs selection -- as in high price - limited selection....we do have a couple others on our list to "visit" though

I went to shopping for a bathtub at Tubz, a store in Fremont, California with literally hundreds of tubs on display. Two different salespeople there recommended Jetta as the brand with the most bang for your buck. I don't have any personal experience with it, though.

A quick story about our Kohler tub. Went to a plumbing showroom where they showed my the devonshire. Said it was thier most popular because of good reviews. Their price $999. Drive home, get the mail, see an ad for Home Depot. Same exact tub on sale for $599 plus you get a $100 HD card if you buy another bathroom fixture. Bought the tub and the toilet we wanted. So I figuire I got the tub for $499, half the price of the showroom!

Shop around, don't be turned off by showroom prices.

sounds like a good deal on the kohler tub--- and maybe we are being too picky about some things--trying to dissect everything.....

have heard of the jetta as well - but not a lot of stores carry them - but think a few around here do...thx for the reminder
