      This product has been around for a long while, long enough that Kohler has already discontinued many of the "add-ons" to make it even better. This is a heavy enameled cast iron shower base that can be installed with a curb or recessed into the floor if your existing structure will allow it which is something you should determine with a licensed engineer before notching out the top of floor joists. The receptor is manufactured in China but it is no lesser quality than you would expect from Kohler. The finish is flawless even though it is basically shipped mostly unprotected in a perimeter crate that just protects the edges. As I mentioned, it is HEAVY and weight 150lbs+ so be sure you have some extra hands to move it around. Most of the fixtures in my home are Kohler enameled cast iron because they do last and more over with this shower base in an area that will see daily use. It can be cold on the feet if the shower is located on an exterior wall...draft-stopping and insulation would be important items to consider during install. I generally love this product and do wish some of the add-ons were still available but at a cheaper price point from the previous market. The one selling point in comparison to a fiberglass or Acrylic unit is that it does not feel like you are stepping into a cheap RV shower. Take a close look at the specs, plan a design that may incorporate it and give it a go. Plan on freight delivery and a wait period.
