The tub is provided with an integral base for easier installation. Position the bath on the floor and slide
into place until the tub is resting on the rear stringer. The base does not need to contact the floor for
proper installation. The base on the 2396 and 2397 models is raised above the floor to facilitate drain
installation. Check level, front to back and side to side. Also check drain clearance hole in sub floor. To
secure the tub to wood studs, use sheet rock screws with washers immediately above the flange of the
tub. To secure the tub
to steel studs, use

AS AMERICA, INC. LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY FOR
AMERICAST® PRODUCTS
If an AS America, Inc. (“American Standard”) Americast® brand
product is found to be defective in materials or workmanship, after
inspection by an authorized American Standard representative,
American Standard will repair or, at its option, exchange the
product for a similar model. This limited warranty is applicable, so
long as it remains in use in its original place of installation, except
that the limited warranty applies to a bathing vessel’s textured
bottom surface only for the first year after the product’s initial
installation.
This limited warranty applies only to the original purchaser and
installation of these products. In the event of a limited warranty
claim, proof of purchase will be required—save sales receipt.
This limited warranty does not apply to whirlpool components or
to faucets, drains, mounting rims, grab bars or other accessories.
If manufactured or supplied by American Standard, such whirlpool
components and accessories are covered under separate limited
warranties.
This limited warranty does not apply to commercial installations.
The warranty for commercial installations is three (3) years.
This limited warranty does not apply to local building code
compliance. Since local building codes vary considerably, the
purchaser of this product should check with a local building or
plumbing contractor to assure local code compliance before
installation.
This limited warranty is void if the Americast® brand product has
been moved from its initial place of installation; if it has been
subjected to faulty maintenance, abuse, misuse, accident or other
damage; if it was not installed in accordance with American
Standard’s instructions; or if it was modified in a manner
inconsistent with the product as shipped by American Standard.
American Standard's option to repair or exchange the product
under this limited warranty does not cover any labor or other
costs of removal or installation. IN NO EVENT WILL AMERICAN
STANDARD BE LIABLE FOR THE COST OF REPAIR OR
REPLACEMENT OF ANY INSTALLATION MATERIALS,
INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, TILES, MARBLE ETC.
American Standard will not be responsible for any other incidental
or consequential damages attributable to a product defect or to
the repair or exchange of a defective product, all of which are
expressly excluded from this limited warranty. This limited
warranty does not cover any liability for consequential or
incidental damages, all of which are hereby expressly disclaimed,
or the extension beyond the duration of this limited warranty of
any implied limited warranties, including those of merchantability
or fitness for an intended purpose. (Some states or provinces do
not allow the exclusion or limitation of implied limited warranties,
so this exclusion may not apply to you.)
This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may have
other statutory rights that vary from state to state or from province
to province, in which case this limited warranty does not affect
such statutory rights.
For service under these warranties, it is suggested that a claim be
made through the contractor or dealer from or through whom the
product was purchased, or that a service request (including a
description of the product model and of the defect) be sent to the
