In regards to the reviews which focus on these models, a proper installation and selecting a compatible adhesive and sealant are both factors which are key for the durability of these units.
When harsh cleaners are used to clean the basin of a bathtub or shower base the acrylic material can dry up and cause stress cracks. Plumber's putty can also dry out the material of the basin, when used to seal the drain assembly, which will cause cracks near the drain hole. If the bathtub or shower base is installed on a non-level subfloor, this can stress the material and cause cracking as well. The temperature which a bathtub or shower base is stored and installed in may also cause the material of the base to expand and contract which may cause the basin to crack. When a non-slip mat with suction cups on the bottom of the mat is left on an acrylic surface, mold and mildew can collect under the cups which can also dry out the material of the basin and cause cracks if not removed and cleaned after each use.
