Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Got the 2 bath remodel thanks to Delta's Vero I was just about to loose a 2 bath remodel to another brand with a similar style when i thought of the Delta's Vero- the price came in less with more margin dollars- style was much better and the homeowner was thrilled! Thank-you Delta! September 26, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. February 26, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. January 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the looks. The design is meant for an updated bathroom. The ease to install was great. The simplicity of design and the use are the requirements we were looking for. June 12, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Quality Control Issue 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. May 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous, modern faucet with a beautiful finish. We used this faucet in our master bathroom remodel in the Champagne Bronze finish, which is beautiful. The faucet is high quality, easy to install and works great. It does splash a little more than other faucets, but I've found if you don't turn it on full force, that problem is cured and it still puts out plenty of water. July 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 12, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Water splashes everywhere 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? September 16, 2014

Now I am afraid!-My husband said we could just turn down the taps under the sink---? Hate the thought of paying plumber twice. Also I will hate having a mess.
Can we just adjust water under cabinette?

Also what pop up drain? I want a large mushroom push top that covers the drain hole completely with no company name stamped on it. I don't want the drain that comes with it.

Answer: 
HI Margo, Thank you for your question. Turning down the water supplies under the counter will reduce the flow to the model 553LF faucet. You could also replace the 1.5 gallon per minute flow regulator in the faucet to one with a lower flow rate. We offer a 1.0 gpm RP73838 and a 0.5 gpm RP78837 flow regulator. The regulator is located under the valve cartridge in the faucet.
Our model 72172 push pop-up less overflow, or the 72173 push pop-up with overflow is the style of drain assembly with the large mushroom push top with no brand information stamped on the cover.
Thanks,
Dave

Pop-up flange options

I recently installed the 553LF faucet. Before I install the spring loaded pop-up stopper I was wondering if there is stopper with a wider flange available? The former owners installed a Porcher sink and faucet which appears to have a 2 1/2 inch diameter flange on its stopper where the pop-up stopper flange is 2 1/8 inch diameter. I am concerned the pop-up stopper flange will be too small for the Porcher sink opening.

Is there a way to eliminate excessive spash from the basin with the Vero faucet?

Customer avatar
by
Tom L.
Dubuque, IA, USA
We recently bought a spec house which has 4 Vero faucets. Despite the beauty and innovation, we are concerned about the large amount of splash that this faucet puts out.

The builder said that it was because there was no aerator. Is there any way to minimize the splash? We have tried turning down the supply tubes, but that doesn't seem to help.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 553LF may have a splash effect depending on the size and shape of your sink. The easiest way to combat this is to turn down the force of water coming out of your faucet.

Answer: 
I have a difficult time understanding how a faucet that is manufactured as one solid piece, with the faucet handle mounted on the right side, can be installed with the faucet control on the left side. I've installed 5 of these faucets in 2 remodeled bathrooms and 1 remodeled powder room. You can mount the unit with the faucet control on the left, but the faucet itself would point 180 degrees from the sink.
