Rated 1 out of 5 by AlTheEngineer Works Well But Feels Flimsy
I bought this one to replace a different brand faucet that was getting hard to operate. Installation was very straightforward and the faucet functions very smoothly.
I was, however, quite unhappy with the quality of construction. The base appears to be plastic, not metal and it doesn't hold the faucet very steady. Like another reviewer said, just moving the handle to turn the water on and off causes the whole faucet to flex and rock back and forth, and yes, the faucet is tightened down well on a very flat sink surface. My wife said it seemed like a "doll house faucet". I'd return it if I could, but I already installed it.
I am a mechanical engineer and I actually worked in plumbing design back in the 1980s so I have at least a little idea about what I'm talking about. I've installed several Delta faucets in the past and was always satisfied. They were very solid and easy to work on when they did need service. This one doesn't inspire confidence. Maybe it will stand up to long term use. I'm hoping for the best.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pete55 Not happy with Delta
I have Delta faucets in all my bathrooms and kitchen and have always been very happy with the quality . However, I replaced the kitchen faucet approx. 2 years ago and the new stuff is lousy.My Delta kitchen faucet lasted 25 years, was well made and only had to be repaired 2 times. The parts were cheap and the job was easy.Now, the new one..very flimsy with plastic feed lines. I thought it made the job easier to do and I was right. It was easy to install. 6 months later I couldn't get it to shut off completely. Called Delta and they sent me a cartridge to replace. It worked ! Recently, my wife noticed water under the sink, and after some investigation I found that the sprayer was leaking where the sprayer connects to the under part of the faucet. Called Delta and they sent me a sprayer. I replaced it and 2 weeks later its leaking again. I went to the local plumbing supply and bought another sprayer to see if theres any difference..now that one is leaking also. They are easy to replace but they leak at the connection . Very disappointed in this construction. I would advise against buying this model or any model with this type of connection on the sprayer.Sorry Delta, no longer a big fan.
