I have the Delta Push Pop 72173, and my cleaning person pulled the pop up part out....how do I put it back in?
Thank you for your question. The cap will screw onto the brass piece and the brass piece will screw into the flange.

if you use silicone under the flange, do you still use the rubber washer?
Thank you for your question, Bdo4! The gasket should provide a water tight seal in most applications. Silicone is not required, but may be used to help ensure a proper seal. We recommend to apply silicone around the under side of the flange.

Is Delta 72173 Push Pop-Up with Overflow compatible as a replacement for the drain pop-up that comes with Delta Addison Faucet Model 592-DST?
Is the Delta 72173 Push Pop-Up with Overflow compatible as a replacement for the drain pop-up that comes with Delta Addison Faucet Model 592-DST already installed in our sinks? The pop-up on our Addison Faucets do not function well and our plumber recommended replacing them with a Push Pop-Up.
Thank you for your question! If you do not have enough room behind the faucet or under the sink to use the included drain, you may install a 72173 Push Pop-Up. However, the pop up will work independently of the faucet, so the lift rodin the back of the faucet will not be functional. You may either remove the lift rod or leave it in place.

Correct orientation of upper seal for 72173 push pop drain w/ overflow
What is the correct orientation/location for the upper seal of the 72173 push pop drain assembly? The shape of the upper seal gives impression that it should be installed into the sink's drain/overflow cavity by itself and then have the drain body passed through it ... or should it stay up against the flange (entire seal) so that both surfaces of the seal are between sink base and the flange?
Thank you for your inquiry! The top gasket of the Delta Push Pop-Up 72173 should sit directly under the lip of the flange assembly. The gasket should provide a water tight seal in most applications.

Does this faucet work with a second hole for the overflow?
I have a new sink that has a second hole about 2" below the regular sink hole. I have never had one of these type of sinks before.
Thank you for your question. This pop-up assembly works with sinks that have an overflow and a depth of 1" - 1 7/8".

Plumber's putty or silicone?
When installing this drain, which is preferred; putty or silicone?
Hi Rhudi, Thank you for your question. We recommend using silicone when installing your drain assembly.

You reccomend using silicone instead of plumbers putty but do you put it on the top or bottom side of the upper rubber gromet?
I purchased a push pop drain assembly for a vessel with an overflow (72173-RB). Does this require silicone sealer to install?
Thank you for your question! The gasket should provide a water tight seal in most applications. Silicone is not required, but may be used to help ensure a proper seal. We recommend to apply silicone around the under side of the flange.

Is there a pop-up drain like the 72173 with 1" longer threaded section?
I need a deeper (longer) threaded area than the 72173 has. That threaded section is 3" and my vessel sink bottom to the underside of the countertop is just slightly more than 3". Hopefully you have a model that has a longer threaded section or can suggest a way to extend the threaded section. I really don't want to have to grind the underside of the countertop, but that will be the option of last choice, if no other option is available. Thanks.
Thank youf ro your question. Delta does not make a longer or different threaded drain body for the Delta Push Pop-Up Drain assembly 72173. All Delta drain assemblies fit sinks with standard 1 5/8"drain hole size.
