Why does this come in matte black?
I don't understand why this wouldn't come in matte black when you sell faucets in matte black. Seems I can only get with overflow holes?
Thank you for your question. At this time, we do not have the 72173 in a Matte Black finish.

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.

Will the 72173 push pop up w overflow work with Koehler K2214 sink
Just want to make sure this one will work with my sink. I have read some reviews on websites that complain the thread section is a little too short or the drain hole diameteris a problem. Please verify it will work with Kohler K2144.
Thank you for your question. The flange has a diameter of 1 5/8" between the gaskets.
Please refer to the specifications for the sink to verify that it will work.

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.
