Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Delta Faucets Purchased two for master bath to replace existing cheaper, unattractive faucets that came in the home we moved into recently. Love the high arch, very sleek and allows more clearance between the sink and tap. So much easier to clean as well. Our plumber suggested Delta after having to replace our other faucet of another brand he was not impressed with in the kitchen and we were very happy with it. Installation pretty easy, hardest part was getting the old one off! Some of the drain components are plastic, but the faucet itself is all heavy, sturdy metal. Very nice. February 8, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice look, could use better materials We just bought four of these faucets for our master bath. We like the look and the price at Lowes. The look is pleasing with the spigot arching over the bowl without being overwhelming. The materials seem a bit cheap. The handles wobble a bit and the sink stopper pull sticks now and then. I had to try various holes and lengths of the arm to get it to work at all. I installed the faucets myself and they were easy to install. We are looking for one in gold bronze color for a half bath. The picture gallery shows one but it is not in the color options listed. February 10, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by So, So The overall exterior design and appearance was sleek and attractive. I was quite disappointed in the quality of the under-workings which are...plastic. PLASTIC Delta? Serious? However, my biggest disappointment is that once installed, the handles have a sort of spongy feel to them, almost as if they are loose or on a cushion. I did not notice this when I was looking at the floor model and likely would not have purchased this particular faucet. July 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This faucet is a good one. Replaced a 20 year old faucet with this one. My only complaint with the new delta faucet is that the strap that is used to connect to the rod on the stopper is made of plastic. I tightened it by hand two or three times and it kept slipping loose. I then used a wrench and overtightened it so that it cracked. Fortunately, I had purchased two faucets (one for another sink) and used the good strap from that unit. I glued the strap that has the crack and will use it when I install the other faucet. I hope it works, a new part is only available as part of a unit (cannot purchase separately). Note to manufacturer: Metal is more durable than plastic! December 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good faucet We are very satisfied with this faucet. The last faucet was also made by Delta and only lasted 2 years before it started leaking and couldn't be repaired. The plumber who replaced the old faucet said the last plumber might have put in an old fixture instead of the new one we paid for as it should have lasted more than 2 years. January 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great look and feel but one minor caveat. We had our plumber install this product (25996LF) three years ago. Approx. 6 months ago the hot water handle became loose. I removed the top cap and tightened the phillips screw. The handle is no longer loose but now it squeaks when turning. It also has a slight hitch in the motion when you turn it whereas the cold water handle is super smooth. There are no leaks but the squeak is annoying. I've acquired new parts but am hesitant to replace since there is no leak. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. One more thing: the handle doesn't seem to squeak until the water has been running hot. In other words, if I turn it on first thing in the morning there is no squeak. January 20, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Fair for price Surprising lack of quality for Delta. After replacing Moen faucets with this model I am not impressed with this Delta product. Like others mentioned the handles wobble and feel flimsy. Only time will tell for durability. Need to replace additional faucets but am hesitant to buy Delta September 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow! Excellent Faucet! Looks Great! Was so easy to install! In total removeing old faucet and installing new Delta Faucet took only 30 minutes to do and my only help was my 3 year old puupy Keira she wanted to be petted every 30 seconds. A very beautiful faucet so easy to install and a very good or an excellent price! May 23, 2015

Does it require putty and/or silicone while installing?

I recently purchased 25996LF-BN to replace my 1-year-old Pfister(it works great but just does not fit my portable washer's head). Before I install, (1) the instruction says "you may need silicone", (2) I read instruction through and it does not say I need use putty. Pfister specifically says I need putty and silicone while installing, how about this 25996LF-BN model? Thanks.

Hi JC, Thank you for your question!

We recommend using a bead of silicone (only) around the underside of the faucet to make a complete seal.

Best regards,

Answer: 
Hi David, Thank you for your question. The nut should only be hand tight and there will be some resistance in the ball movement. It is possible to over-tighten the nut making the horizontal rob difficult to move. The horizontal rod will move easier once hooked up to the lift rod and when water is present in the drain assembly.
Thanks,
Dave

What is the difference between 2596LF-OB and 25996-OB?

Both look the same except one has Foundations first in the name. Also, do they both come with drains?

Answer: 
Hi JKPine, Thank you for your question. The difference between the B2596LF-OB and the 25996-OB is in the drain assemblies that come with the unit. The drain assembly that comes with the B2596LF-OB is metal, the one that comes with the 25996-OB is not.
Thanks,
Dave

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 25996LF-OB does not contain a rotational limit stop like we have equipped our showers with to prevent scalding.
