Rated 1 out of 5 by Sue502 splashes way too much!
While the look of this design is attractive, the way the water splashes when it hits the sink or tub (both are not too shallow) is more than I have ever seen. Had I known this issue, I would have considered another design. OK, Delta engineers, how about creating a retroactive fitting screen that will easily solve this issue? It's not rocket science! something that can be fit up inside the spout that will prevent the water from becoming a needle shaped rocket that ends up splashing everywhere. Send out notices to existing owners of this product and send complimentary screens. These faucets were not inexpensive. I have two sink faucets, model number 553LF-RB and one Roman Tub faucet, model number T2753-RB. Your customer support person said he would pass on my suggestion but there was obviously nothing he could do for me at this time. I chose Delta over any other brand because my contractor recommended you. Please make me a believer! Thanks in advance! (I noticed I am not the first to complain about this feature in the review section. Surely a solution can be found!!!!).

Rated 1 out of 5 by DGrass639 Too much splashing!
I bought a new house that has this type of faucet installed in all the bathroom sinks. This faucet has a very nice, modern look to it, but it has no aerator, so the water splashes everywhere! It is very frustrating always having to clean up the mess from the counter, the walls, and the mirror... not to mention the wet spot on the front of our clothes! As a result of this issue, we usually only turn our faucets on a fraction of the full amount which helps to some degree, but the water will splash out of the sink no matter what. There has to be some way to design an aerator to fit this faucet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Shawn35 Poor screen design/water splashes everywhere!
I absolutely love the look of this faucet and was super excited to install it. The directions were simple and easy to follow. I had it up and running in no time flat. HOWEVER, the moment I turned it on water splashed everywhere. Then I tried washing my hands, forget about it. Water flew out all around my vanity and wall. I tried turning down the pressure under the sink but that didn't help at all. I'm not a rocket scientist but to me it seems as though it's a flaw in the way the water flows through the screen. I love this faucet but don't know if I can live with a constant mess of water.

The design is excellent and the attempt at adding the aerator improved the splashing issue. It does still splash, just not as much as the previous model.
The rating of "avoid" is based on the quality control of the final product. A margin of error is expected since the spout and the base are made of two parts, however an offset of a spout (1/4") when compared against the base (misaligned) is clearly visible. After speaking with Delta, I decided to purchase a replacement unit which also came in with the flaw. The expectations are slightly higher for a 300$ faucet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ron01 Awesome contemporary design
We were looking for a modern and clean looking design to remodel our lavatory basins. This model has extremely simple lines and beautiful chrome finish. The side operation single valve operation is elegant and operates very smoothly. To top it off, the installation was incredibly simple and took us no time at all to install in all three of our bathrooms. One of our guests who recently returned from Europe remarked how he had seen a similar design in a bath over seas. We just love it.

What a horrible faucet. Water splashes everywhere and creates a pool on your counters, drips on your walls and mirror. Lowering the water flow does not remedy the problem. It just creates a smaller pool of water. As soon as your hands, toothbrush, soap, etc are under the faucet, the water ricochets everywhere. If this had been a cheap faucet, I would have thought well you get what you pay for. But at over $300 what the was Delta thinking?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Unhappy2016 Splish Splash
Love the look of the faucet. However, the first time we turned it on we realized it splashes way too much and makes a mess of the counter, wall and floor. We have a deep sink so that's not the issue. A hole has already been made in our new counter so to say we're disappointed is a an understatement. Not sure what we're going to do to remedy the situation because we can't live with the splashing.
