Rated 2 out of 5 by from The pop-up keeps jamming. The pop-up keeps getting stuck in the down position. The first lasted about 3 years. Since then I have replaced 3 in approx 6 months. It looks nice when it's working, I just don't know when it's going to happen again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean and it just works. I love this drained paired with our new Cassidy wall mount faucets. It is just such a clean look and they both work great. Plus customer service is second to none.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not solve my problem I purchased this pop up drain assembly kit on the advice of Delta in an attempt to solve a problem with a Delta faucet installation. In new construction, the lift rod on the faucet was nearly unusable because the faucet was installed too close to the granite backsplash. This product was to replace the current drain and eliminate the need to use the lift rod. The drain itself is well made but the round plug is much too large to look right in a sink. It might look fine for a bathtub installation. I can't understand why Delta would recommend this item for use in a sink. They need to make available a size that is better suited for lavatory sinks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inconsistent product I installed a Delta pop-up drain on a bathroom sink with no problems, so I purchased 2 more for my other 2 bathrooms with identical sinks. However, unlike the first the second leakes from both top nut holding the drain to the sink as well as the lower fitting down pipe. Also, when the domed cap in the sink is screwed tight the pop-up doesn't engage. If I loosen it a bit it engages, but doesn't release. To get if to work I have to unscrew it a complete turn and then it wobbles. I tried both new pop-ups and they are both the same. I even took the chrome cap and pop-up assembly from the good sink, but it didn't work in the second drain assembly. I can live with the loose cap and will now try plumbers tape to fix the leak.

I have the Delta Push Pop 72173, and my cleaning person pulled the pop up part out....how do I put it back in?

Asked by: Dogma
Hi Dogma, Thank you for your question. The cap will screw onto the brass piece and the brass piece will screw into the flange. Best regards, Jon

if you use silicone under the flange, do you still use the rubber washer?

Asked by: bdo4
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. Best regards, Tanya

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.
Asked by: R
Hi R, 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. Best regards, Jon

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?
Asked by: how-to
Dear How-to, 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. Best regards, Tanya

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. Thanks
Asked by: Brad
Hi Brad, Thank you for your question. This pop-up assembly works with sinks that have an overflow and a depth of 1" - 1 7/8". Best regards, Jon

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?

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.
Asked by: oldclyde
Dear Oldclyde, 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. https://media.deltafaucet.com/SpecSheet/DSP-L-72173%20Rev%20B.pdf Best regards, Tanya
