Foundations Single Handle Kitchen Faucet with Spray
Install was easy and pretty clear cut. As some have noted in reviews, divertor valve was bad out of the bow (Thumping sounds when water is turned on). Company sent a new one free of charge. Seems the replacement was of differant design. Sounds like they new their was an issue from the get go but decided to let customers deal with it after the purchase.

Looks nice, works poorly
Originally bought a Lowes Project Source faucet for my home. Turned out to be poor quality and needed to be replaced after one year. I decided rather than replace it with the same product under warranty to upgrade to a Delta so I could install and not have to be concerned with replacement or repair for years .
Now after one day the new faucet is making the same chugging noise as described by other reviewers. This is in a home that I lease . So now I need to drive back, remove the faucet, return it to the store, buy a new one and drive back to the property and install it. So this will end up being four trips to the home and several hours of time that could have been spent elsewhere. I'm very disappointed after buying what I thought was a high quality product.
It seems as there is a inherent problem with this product but the faucet still makes its way to store shelves without being corrected.

This faucet was well made and easy to install. It's price was what got my attention initially. But the design and ease of installation are the factors that won me over in the end.

This product is an easy install and works very well.
It's an easy install and there were no problems. It looks very good in our kitchen and matches up very good with our other devices.

We Love It, Love It!! (finally!)
We bought this unit for it's simplistic and elegant design, and for the quality function of our old, similar design Delta faucet. Installation was pretty straightforward, excellent quality fit to the parts. A very nice-looking unit. However, as we turned the supply lines back on and started to use our lovely new faucet, the "thunk, thunk, thunk" started when the faucet was first turned on. It kept doing it for the next few days, so I called Delta Customer Support. The Rep said right away he would send me a new diverter part, leading me to believe this was not the first time they had this phone call! A few days later, the part arrived, and it was pretty easy to install. Well, the Thunk was better, but still persisted. A few days later, I called back, and was told by the Rep to remove air and debris from the supply lines by removing the faucet, allowing water to run through the lines for about 30 seconds, then re-assembling. After cleaning up the inevitable water spray, we let the faucet experience regular use for a couple more weeks. The Thunk was about the same. I called back a third time, and the Rep suggested that maybe there was debris in the aerator, and she would send me a new one. I told her I hadn't dismantled and checked the aerator yet, and if she wanted to hold, I'd check it right then. Sure enough, there was some debris in the aerator screen. I cleaned it out very well, let the hot and cold water run a good 30 seconds each, then replaced the aerator. It appeared to be working fine at that point, and told her not to bother sending another aerator at this time. It has now been near two days, and there has not been a single Thunk sound from our lovely Delta faucet. It is working beautifully, quietly, smoothly, elegantly, .... yes, we LOVE IT!! Finally!! It was an annoyance going through the hassle of getting rid of the Thunk noise, but all three Delta Reps were helpful, patient, and understanding. Yes, it should work perfectly out of the box, but Delta appeared to be aware of the problem, and did all they could to help resolve my problem with it. I've dealt with far worse product hassles than this. Thus, I'm giving them all 5-star ratings since the product itself, once working properly, is excellent quality and function, and Delta Customer Support was very sincere and proactive in helping us get the problem sorted out. We have a near-identical unit at work, and while it's good, it's not a Delta, and the difference in the smooth-touch operation and control, excellent water flow, and yes, quiet operation, is very obviously significantly higher quality in our Delta unit. Buy it. If you have the same "Thunk" problem, don't worry, it's easy to fix, and you will love the unit, it's first-class.

Beautiful faucet but every time I turn on the water it makes a jumping sound which can be heard all over the house. The plumber that installed the faucet said it probably is the diverter making the noise and it would stop after I used it a while. I have been using the faucet nearly 4 weeks and it still makes the same noise.

Delta faucet not up to par
I always buy Delta, feel it is a brand I can trust. My kitchen Delta faucet needed replaced, it was many years old and I was very happy with it. My kitchen is old so I wanted a simple faucet, not cheap - simple. This new faucet looks fine, but has 2 major issues. First - it thumps. When I move the handle from hot to cold or high to low - it makes a thumping sound. This should not be.
Second, the range to receive warm water is extremely small. When washing dishes it goes from very hot, burning hot to cold. I like to wash dishes or my hands in a very warm water but not so hot it burns.
Delta did send a replacement part but I'll have to hire my plumber back at probably another $75 to fix it. They did not respond to me with an explanation, from the description of the part it sounds as though this fix would only fix the 'thumping.'
If I'm going to pay my plumber again, I'll this time purchase a different brand faucet and start from scratch. Not convinced this one is worth keeping.
