Lahara Two Handle Centerset Lavatory Faucet
Great Faucet for the Price
I bought three of these faucets for two bathroom renovations. They are beautiful faucets with great quality and a reasonable price. Installation was also quite easy. I didn't know in my installation whether or not I'd need to cut the plastic feed pipes to length, so I also ordered some of the special plastic ferrels just in case - but didn't need them because the faucet package already includes extra ferrels in case you need to cut the feed pipes (I didn't need to in my installation). One of the faucet handles was received with a small scratch on it, but both Faucets Direct & Delta were prompt and courteous about getting a replacement sent asap at no charge.

I am very disappointed because the cold water side is very noisy when partly opened. I called Delta in Illinois and told them I had flushed out the line by removing the aerator as instructed. They said remove the handles, turn off the supplies, and remove the stops, and reopen the stops to remove any debris there. After doing this and reassembly and operation, there was no improvement in the cold water side. The warm water side is ok. What more can I do?

Great choice of Faucets
I am so pleased I found FaucetDirect. There is a great selection of brands and styles that you do not find in a store. I needed a bathroom faucet that went with the shiny gold and found Champagne. Perfect-we did not have to make a complete makeover. New cabinet knobs and the Delta Champagne faucet updates the master bathroom

I purchased 2 of these Delta Lahara faucets in bronze for both baths in my home. Both were easy to install & look great. One has been installed for over a year now with no problems what so ever.

had it professionally installed. It leaks from the base. The plumber had to come back and put clear caulking around it, which I didn't wasn't but had no choice.

Recently bought this faucet and everything went very well. Great value.

Elegant and noisy
Very elegant. It is larger than some. I've used it a month and find its size an advantage. Hands fit under it better and the longer handles allow small temperature changes.
Very feminine. Turn it on a little and it hisses loudly. Turn it on all the way and it becomes quiet. I called support and asked why and they said they would replace it. After I tell you what I went through to install it you will know sending it back was not an option. I asked what's wrong with it and they said it needs priming. What? I guess they should ship them full of water.
"Watersense Certified" means it's supposed to use less water. NOT IF IT'S ON FULL ALL THE TIME.
The tiny Tapered knob you pull up on to close the drain is hard to use if you have arthritis. I don't and still find it difficult especially with wet or soapy fingers.
The installation was a nightmare. Took it out of the box and the pull up rod that passes through the faucet was blocked by a metal plate on the bottom. This plate was on backwards. The plate was screwed on with two Torx screws. I owned a machine shop. I can fix this. I had the proper screw driver and tried to reassemble it properly. It was very difficult to hold everything aligned properly and get those screws to start.
Got her done and installed it. Those Pex supply lines are long, curved and stiff. You can't cut them because they have crimped on compression fitting installed. That made it a little difficult. Turned the water on and it sprayed under the sink on me and over the sink onto the rest of the bathroom. Take her off and disassemble it to find I had damaged an O-Ring.
Lucky me. In my junk I found anther O-Ring that looked close. Reassemble and reinstall. Works great as long as you want it quiet for other people sleeping and turn it on full all the time.
I called support and thought I would get the wonderful service I have received for other delta faucets. The representative said that neither the O-Ring or the flimsy gasket that goes under the faucet exists. HMMM.
Would I recommend it. Sure if you check out the assembly right away and don't try to fix anything. Send back the poorly assembled ones. Maybe my family is too sensitive about hissing sounds in the bathroom.
It' chrome.I don't know why my camera made it look bronze.
