Classic Single Handle Centerset Lavatory Faucet
Poor quality, cheap "pot metal" construction
I have used Delta products for years. Always been very satisfied. But recently remodeled my wife's bathroom, with new vanity and sink. The existing Delta faucet was in good working condition, finish still good, etc, but since it was 16 years old, I decided to "update" and replace. Bad decision.
I had no doubt that I would purchase another Delta faucet. And after considerable online research, I decided on the Delta 522MPU, Classic Chrome, single handle , center set, bathroom faucet. I paid $89.98 at Locke Supply Company, Joplin, MO.
I have never been so disappointed in a Delta product. It looks nice, but beauty is only surface deep. This faucet is a piece of junk. Feels like it is chrome finished plastic or pot metal. Very noisy, etc. My old Delta faucet is made of much heavier material, and is much more durable.
How Delta could tarnish their good name by putting out this faucet is beyond comprehension. Needless to say, I will no longer buy a Delta product based on brand name alone.
By the way, I cleaned up my old Delta faucet and had it professionally reinstalled. Works just fine and I expect will give me many more years of service. The old saying "newer is not always better" certainly holds true in this case.
Sorry to give such a negative review, but I am so put out over the time and money expended that I just could not help but make this negative review of a bad product.

The Delta 522 is a great faucet; even the plumber was impressed. Great customer service; the salesman was courteous and helpful.
