This selection includes a variety of tubs in the most popular shapes and sizes, and at a very affordable price. And just because the project has a thin budget, it doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice craftsmanship and quality. Learn more about MTI BASICS. View BASICS tubs, including MTI’s Walk-In Tub.

While MTI's huge selection of tubs includes a wide variety of sizes, shapes and styles, it also provides a choice of tubs designed for several different types of installation.

Drop-in Tub installation


Some tubs are designed for drop-in installation, where the tub is "dropped-in", or sits in, a hole cut out of the tub "deck", or surrounding, supporting area, made of material such as granite, marble, tile or a product such as Corian®.



Other baths are designed for "undermounting," an installation type where the tub is mounted underneath the tub deck, and the deck is cut out so that the opening exactly mimics the size and shape of the top of the tub bowl itself, leaving only the inside of the tub bowl visible. The product page for each tub indicates whether a tub is suitable for undermounting.

Freestanding tub installation


Another type of installation refers to baths designed to be "freestanding". Freestanding tubs do not require any surrounding material because they are designed to stand alone.

Alcove tub installation


The last installation type commonly found is what is referred to as "alcove". Within the plumbing industry this refers to an installation where there are three walls surrounding the tub, with each wall's surface sitting directly on top of the tub's deck. A tile flange is required on each side for this type of installation to provide a water-tight and finished appearance. Shown is the integral skirted Cameron 4 tub.

From this very high-level overview of the MTI tub product range, you can see that MTI offers a choice of hydrotherapies, a wide range of models, in a variety of designs, sizes, shapes, installation type and material construction from which to choose. It's easy to understand why MTI is becoming the manufacturer of choice for homeowners and professionals alike.
