by PawPawWhiskers Plastic parts?
Most of the parts are metal. Looked great. One day the plumber installed faucet..same day called about a leak around sink drain flange. Pipe attached to sink flange is PLASTIC..when tightened enough to try to stop leak around sink flange, plastic threads do not hold. Also the clevis strap that attaches to pop-up drain plug is PLASTIC...again because of PLASTIC the lock nut would not tighten enough to lift rod.
Plumber had to come next day and put in replacement parts that were METAL to do the job. Of course the drain plug and sink flange do not match the faucet. Why use plastic on functional parts?????

Rated 5 out of 5 by SundogJax Delta is simply the best...
Years ago I got started with Delta. Before that, I shopped for the lowest price, and that's what I got, along with low quality. I live on the beach (corrosion), and we have hard water on top of that (deposits). Delta products stand up to these hazards, and when they do need repair (EVERYTHING needs repair), the customer service from Delta is superb. Quick, correct and usually FREE. How can you beat that?
Delta is simply the best. Perhaps a bit more expensive at the outset, but NO DOUBT the most effective (installation, function and repair), and the most efficient cost to own over time.

We just had our bathroom counter redone and bought this faucet for it. I works smooth and I like it very much.

This Delta faucet replaced a 10 year old 2 handle model.
Easy to install and has a perfect spout length to clean your hands without water going all over the sink.

Rated 1 out of 5 by so2315 Plastic parts equals FAILURE!
Just like another reviewer poster here, I just experienced the exact same problem with the plastic pop up drain assembly leaking. The actual faucet installed easy enough, but the plastic tailpiece was leaking underneath the sink. Upon further examination, the flange is a piece of plastic with a chrome cover. When you try to screw the tailpiece into the flange the plastic in the flange will spin besides the chrome. The plastic threads then will strip out if you try to tighten it up. Can't use plumbers putty on the flange since that don't mix with plastic.
I will spend another night without my bathroom sink so I can tear this out and take it back to Home Depot. Very disappointed in Delta's quality. Also noticed it is made in China. Should have left my 40 yr old Delta alone, that was solid except the finish was getting tough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Homehandyman23 Faucet works well, but be careful when installing.
I installed this faucet to replace a 50-year old not-Delta faucet. Faucet works satisfactorily. I did not replace the old flange or body at sink, and I re-used the old metal (not plastic) lift rod, strap, horizontal rod and pivot nut but am using the new stopper. Caution with Installation step 6, Flush system: without the aerator, not all water and manufacturing process debris flowed into the sink during flushing - a good volume of water/debris sprayed back inside the faucet's body and flowed down through the gasket and mounting holes of the sink into the vanity. Good thing I'd left an old towel there through installation process - helped absorb some of the unexpected back-flow. Messy! Need to improve the design, Delta.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lora56 This product is perfect for my needs
I have severe arthritis in my hands and had a hard time turning my old faucet on and off but this Delta single handle lever is very easy for me to use. I can now turn my water on and off with just one finger and no pain to my hands. The handle design has also minimized the water that drips off my hands onto the back off sink when turning it off since it faces forward over the sink and I can shut it off just by touching the end of the handle. I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend this faucet to my friends and family.
