Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great looking, water goes everywhere! Just finished our bathroom remodel. Splurged on the vero series of faucet and trim and it looks gorgeous. Unfortunately I failed to read the reviews on this faucet and the water goes everywhere. It does not matter if it is right over the drain or if you put your hands deep in the bowl—there is no way to avoid getting water everywhere. It was so expensive but is non returnable and it makes the bathroom a mess all the time. Very disappointed and now we are trying to not use the sink.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Corrosion and water marks We recently built our dream home and put Delta Vero stainless steel faucets, body sprays, rain heads, and shower heads in all of our 4 bathrooms. We are extremely disappointed in the look of these stainless faucets. They look like they belong in a public restroom with splash marks and corrosion on each faucet. I have cleaned them all to no avail. The corrosion in our master bath sink faucets is unsightly. I hate the look of the "brilliant" SS. It will not get clean no matter what I try. We have a top end Culligan water softener system that was installed in our home when it was built and these faucets started corroding within a month. I think there is something wrong with the stainless finish. I wish I had gone with another brand in brushed nickel. See pictures below. Our home is only 8 months old and won the 2018 Parade of Homes in the $600K - $1 million category. After reading all the other reviews about splashing (which our faucets also do) and corrosion, I am amazed that Delta has not corrected this problem.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awesome style - terrible function! This faucet has no water pressure and splashes everywhere. Too bad, it's so beautiful to look at - but that's about it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Faucets Ok, customer service not so much... I have 3 Vero faucets in my home, they`re beautiful and work flawlessly excepy one leaks...the plumber that installed them put in 2 new cartridges, it still leaks...Delta agent insists I try another cartridge. They don't want to simply replace the whole faucet. Lifetime warranty? I highly doubt it....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from IT IS A SHAME For a product this beautiful and costly, it is a shame that the "brilliant" minds of DELTA cannot address the common splash issue associated with this product. The only reason I am giving it 2 stars is because of the outward design...minus one star for the splash issue, minus one star for the poor customer service and minus one star for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Deserve 1 Star If I could rate this with a zero star I would. The spout corrodes even following cleaning directions using a white vinegar solution. Perhaps because we have 'hard' water. However,the rain shower and other shower heads are fine. Throwing well over a thousand dollars out the window for someone else to find is a better use of your money. This faucet should be off the market!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Corrodes The spout end of the faucet has continued to corrode, despite cleaning it regularly with CLR and/or LimeAway to try to stave it off. It’s in my main floor powder room and is a complete embarrassment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great design, single handle Bought this faucet last month as a bathroom remodel. It looks great but the Stream Straightener RP76571 causes the water to splash, sometimes out of the sink bowl. The Stream Straightener needs to be redesigned; more like the Aerators of other Delta faucets.

We want to buy this faucet but I'm concerned about all the reviews on splashing. Is there a certain type of sink that works best with this type of faucet to avoid splashing. We are building a house and I need to spec the sink as well.

Asked by: Barry
Thank you for your question, Barry. We recommend installing the faucet so that the water falls into the drain or onto the stopper. If you have any further questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-345-3358 or email customerservice@deltafaucet.com. We’d be happy to help! Best regards, Jon

Can a bathroom sink faucet be installed in a bidet?

I'm planning to buy the 553LF faucet for my sink but I'm have trouble finding a matching bidet faucet. Can this one be installed in a bidet?
Asked by: Kermitgi
Dear Kermitgi, Thank you for your inquiry! The Delta Vero Lavatory 553LF has a flow rate of 1.20 GPM at 60 PSI, this would be to low of a flow rate and no proper connections for a bidet install. Best regards, Tanya

Splash---?

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.
Asked by: Margo
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

Can this faucet be used with a sink that has an overflow? Does the drain allow for this or is it a separate purchase?

Asked by: JD
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model 553LF has a metal push-pop assembly that does have overflow holes included in the box. If you need to purchase it separately, the model number is 33W576.

Has anything been done to fix the splash issue with this faucet? I have reduced the flow at the shut-off to almost nothing and it still splashes. Would a new stream regulator help (RP76571)? or is it the way it is?

Asked by: Bobs
Thank you for your question, Bobs! I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing splashing from your Delta 553LF faucet. We do not recommend removing the stream straightener as this part is not designed to be easily removed. Instead, you can soak a rag in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water and apply around the spout for an hour or even overnight to help break up any debris that maybe causing the splashing issue. We would also recommend either using a low gallons per minute flow regulator such as part number RP73838 or simply turning the supply lines down halfway or until the splashing stops. https://media.deltafaucet.com/PartsDiagram/DPD-L-553LF_A.pdf Best Regards, Rosanna

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

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.
Asked by: Tom L.
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.

Hi, I see that the lever is pulled down to turn the water on, I am assuming cold water, but how do you turn it to get hot water? Are you able to remove the flow restrictor and is the bowl stopper the push in the sink like the 3553LF? Thank you, Sydney

Asked by: SYDNEY
Hi, Sydney! Thank you for your question. The Delta 553LF faucet handle pulls out, away from the body to turn on and give cold water. Pull the handle towards you to get hot water. The flow restrictor in the faucet is non-removable. The stopper for the drain assembly is a push pop up. Best Regards, Rosanna

can this faucet be used for a square 5.5" high vessel sink?

Asked by: Grit
Grit, Thank you for your question. The faucet could be installed with a 5.5" vessel sink. However, the spout will drop below the rim of the bowl at 5 1/4" above the deck surface. The vessel version of this faucet is model 753LF. The end of the spout on this model is 9 9/32" above the deck. Please refer to the Technical Specifications linked below. https://media.deltafaucet.com/SpecSheet/DSP-L-553LF%20Rev%20E.pdf Best regards, Jon
