If the lift rod pulls straight up, why does the spec sheet call for a minimum 2-1/2" clearance to backsplash?
I've seen this 2-1/2" minimum space requirement on other faucets, but that was because the lift rod on those faucets come out at an angle toward the backsplash.
It looks like the lift rod on the Lahara pulls straight up (which several users have confirmed in various Q&A posts.
I'd like to purchase the Lahara, but I'm not sure the maker of the cultured granite vanity top I have on order can accommodate the 2-1/2" requirement.
Thank you for your question. The backsplash clearance is to make sure you have enough room for both the installation above the sink and under the sink for this faucet.

3538-MPU or 3538-MPU-DST
How can I tell if my faucet has Diamond Seal Technology?
Thank you for your inquiry, Pupper! The Delta faucet models that contain the letter "DST", like the Lahara 3538-MPU-DST faucet uses our Diamond Seal Technology which uses a diamond coated ceramic cartridge to control the water flow.

"Metal" pop up
I just bought this faucet. My plumber told me before I bought it, "just make sure it has a metal pop-up." Well, yes, there is metal for the part one sees in the sink, but the inside is all plastic. I bought this from a very well known big box store and it came in original Delta packaging. The model numbers matched, however, the inside of the pop-up is all plastic and cheap. My plumber went ahead and installed it, however, I am disappointed in the quality of the pop-up. Please let me know if the inside of the metal pop-up is supposed to be plastic or are different items with the same model numbers being sold at plumber's supply houses, this site, and at big box stores.
Thank you for your question. The drain assembly is metal. The stopper and the ball on the horizontal rode is non-metallic. Non-metallic parts are beneficial because they do not rust or corrode. Please know that all of our products are built to last and come with a Lifetime Limited Warranty. When comparing the same model number, products will be exactly the same regardless of where they are purchased.
