RE: Trying to find the deepest cast iron bathtub for a 60" alcove (Follow-Up #5)

@akcorcoran, I have explored all types of tubs and decided that cast iron is the one I want to spend my money on. It will last a several generations if no one drops a brick in it. Americast takes second place in durability, I hear they will rust out around the drains over time. Any type of plastic or fiberglass tub is last place in my opinion. I will be very content spending $1500 on something that will last forever.

@motherof3sons, The parity is a nice tub, but unfortunately it is 66" long and I only have 60" to work with.

@sloyd, The toto 1525 is not as deep as the tea-for-two. If you look at the specifications of the toto it list the total height as 16-1/4" That is everything from the bottom of the feet to the top of the tile flange. The actual water depth is considerably lower than that. Unfortunately they do not list what the water depth is. (I wonder why =p) So if we are just comparing total height then the tea-for-two is 2-1/2" taller.

@phylhl, I have seriously considered the memoirs, but again it is not a deep as the tea-for-two. It is definitely a wider tub which is something to consider if you are a wider person. I did locate a showroom and try the memoirs out. I may revisit it before I make my final decision. By the way you have a very nice bathroom!

So it seems the tea-for-two is still the deepest. Anyone else have any input? I still have some time before I have to make a decision. Gutting the bathroom starts next week.

NOTES:

Kohler Tea for two OR Memoirs
