American Standard is one of the leading bath tub manufacturers, not only in America but across the globe. The American Standard line of bath tubs is versatile and affordable.

Pros: The best thing about American Standard bath tubs is the wide range of tubs available for purchase.

Cons: Many customers have reported problems with the finish on American Standard's Americast bath tubs. The primary complaint is that they are easy to chip and that it's difficult or impossible to repair chips. It also seems as if it's not unusual for rust spots to form around the drain or in the middle of the tub's base. While these problems certainly don't occur in all Americast tubs, they are something you'll want to think about before you make a purchase. Considering the somewhat hefty price of Americast tubs, chipping and rusting are problems that customers shouldn't have to deal with.

Overall: The people at American Standard clearly know a thing or two about bathroom fixtures. They offer consumers a good deal of choice. In the case of bath tubs, this choice includes color, shape, capacity and more. There are tubs for budget consumers as well as those looking to spend more to get a luxury tub.
