Help! My husband is having 2nd thoughts on the tub we picked for our renovation. We want to consider the American Standard Cambridge, 5' tub. Can anyone measure theirs and tell me what the actual length is at the bottom of the interior basin? Not just the specs from the manufacturer. We'd have to order and we've learned the specs on tub interiors are NOT correct. The Kohler we ordered claims a 45" floor in the basin. But it is actually 38". And when I go to showrooms, it seems ALL specs are measured more towards the center than the bottom.
Thanks! We can't continue the renovation until we get this decided.

In stead of guessing why not contact American standard and ask for a roughing diagram? This will give you more then enough information

We've asked and been given the exact #'s we already have from installation spec sheets. But we're finding that no company measures at the actual bottom of the tub. They measure where the curve in the basin starts. Somehow the plumber knows this secret, but sales reps do not.

We're sticking with the Kohler we already have. At least we know what we're getting without delaying the project. It has a great soaking depth. Thanks.
