Rated 3 out of 5 by from At least it works. It may just be the sink (porcelain), but this drain did not fit into the countersink. I had to grind the flange down to physically put it in the sink. Problem solved, except that the pop up feature does not function unless the to is unscrewed almost to the point of coming off. Since there is no overflow, and I know how to make it work, it works. It seems sturdy enough, and it may fit other sinks better than mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and looks good Was 1/8 inch off what I needed so I had to return. Its replacement cost much more but was sturdier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this drain We bought this drain to match our Delta vessel faucet. Thanks to a very helpful chat line operator at Faucet direct, I was able to order the correct part and take this drain to our house in Mexico. It had to be right or else! Thank you faucet direct, it works perfectly and our new vesel sinks in our Mexican retirement home look beautiful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Required for Vero Faucet I bought the whole set with a Delta Vero vessel faucet and love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality but... Well made drain but would not work with my vessel sink. My sink has a very steep cut recess for the drain and this drain had no options to allow it to accommodate anything other than a flat or slightly recessed drain outlet. I had to return it for a push button drain vs this pop-up drain.

We just purchases two of these for new vessel sinks. Neither stopper will pop up unless I unscrew it a little ways from the drain.  Then they wobble.  How do you adjust the height so that the stoppers will operate properly

Asked by: Rick R
Hi, Rick R. Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue with your Delta 72172 drain assembly. We do recommend to unscrew from under the sink to reset the position of the drain assembly and then retightened when it's set at the desired position. If you should need further assistance with this, please contact our Delta Customer Service line at (800)345-3358. We are available Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm, CST and Saturday, 8am-5pm, CST. You may also email at customerservice@deltafaucet.com. Best Regards, Rosanna

can the in sink pop up plug be changed to a smaller diameter plug?

Asked by: Stan
Thank you for your question, Stan. The 33W576 Push Pop-Up with Overflow has a smaller cap. Unfortunately, the plug is not interchangeable so the complete pop-up assembly would need to be replaced. https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=33W576 Best regards, Jon

I have a copper sink with an overflow. I believe it's an 18 gauge sink. That is the thickness of the drain hole. Will the pop-up tighten down that far?

Asked by: Doug A
Hi Doug A, Thank you for your question. The 72172-RB drain assembly fits most standard sinks. Below, are the Technical Specifications document link, to show the measurements for this unit: https://media.deltafaucet.com/SpecSheet/DSP-L-72172%20Rev%20C.pdf Best regards, Tanya

Does the 72172 push pop up less overflow help vessel sinks to drain like a sink with an overflow?

Asked by: MHG
Dear MHG, Thank you for your inquiry! The Delta Push Pop-Up Assembly 72172, can be installed in a vessel sink with no overflow holes. It will still work and drain the same as 72173 Push Pop-Up assembly with overflow holes. Best regards, Tanya

How do you adjust the pop up mechanism

The pop up will not latch in the down ( sealed) position.
Asked by: Frank
Dear Frank, Thank you for your question. The pop-up drain assemblies are not designed to hold water for long periods of time. If the water is leaking out of the sink bowl right away, then the water may actually be leaking around the flange and running down the drain. If you push down on the stopper with water in the sink bowl and the water still leaks out of the bowl, then the flange is not sealed properly. I would suggest removing the flange from the sink bowl and applying a large bead of clear silicon to the bottom side of the flange to properly seal the flange with your sink bowl before you reinstall it. Best regards, Tanya

Will this work for the cassidy faucet? And if so, can you get the faucet without the pull-up drain part?

Would like the cassidy faucet to match the towel ring and toilet paper holder but like the push-up drain stopper much better. Thank you
Asked by: Tiffany Willbrand
Hi Tiffany, Thank you for your question. You may use this pop-up assembly with any Delta faucet if the sink does not have an overflow hole. We make several different models in the Cassidy collection. Only the Vessel and Wall-Mount versions do not include a pop-up assembly. However, you can use this unit instead of the included pop-up assembly. The lift rod will be non-functioning. https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/sink?collections=Cassidy%E2%84%A2 Best regards, Jon
