HELP!!before my wife kills me!!...for over a year we have been hunting what SHE calls the perfect tub..a PLAIN rectangular tub 60 " long and 34" to 36" wide (the alcove is 37") . this tub HAS to be DESIGNED to be SPECIFICALLY a soaking tub, NOT manufactured to be a whirlpool minus the jets ( theres too much space lost for motor and hose space even though they arent there)

the bottom length needs to be in the 46"ish (or more) (here again if its originally designed to be a whirlpool then the length shrinks....my wife is 5'10" and says she wants LEG room)..

anyone have any ideas, HURRY !!!before she starts shaving her legs in the swimming pool!

Kohler makes a drop-in steeping tub, that its "bowl" or "water well" almost meets your specifications, except that the length is 43" internal, 19" wide at the bottom and allows a water height of 15". The top area is 54" by 30" and it weighs 318 pounds and holds 62 gallons. For a five foot location and the structure required you're going to be hard-pressed to find a tub that will give you four feet of soaking length, frankly, as the drain distance and the opposing side mounting/supporting structure just aren't going to give you that extra five inches in length internal you're looking for in anything less than a 5'5-6" long tub.

The model number is: K790, and is for a 60"x36x20 application. A picture and diagram is worth a 1,000 words, the specifications and technical drawings (see especially BOTTOM of page 2, are at:

A photo in black (available in white and other cothers) can be seen at:

Its specifically designed for alcove install, and keep in mind that the "bowl" or bathing well, grows larger as you get nearer the "top" up from the floor. Its a real bueat, and cast iron. Hope this helps save ya from the "ut-oh's".
