Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks nice but doesn't drain well The drain stopper looks nice but it doesn't drain the water well; water piles up in the sink and after several seconds it drains. It seems like the hole is not large enough to pass water through. Can this be adjusted?!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pop up sink stopper won't pop up. When fully threaded in, pop up stopper wont pop up when pushed on. Got it to work by partially unthreading the pop up stopper. Same problem on two different stoppers. Delta broadmoor centerset pulldown lavatory faucet with included popup drain. I see that this is a repeat problem with other customers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t last Remodeled bathroom 2 years ago and purchased delta faucets. The pop up works great but the first one corroded after a year. Replaced it. 2nd pop up in the other sink now corroded and snapped off. Guess I’ll buy another one or junk these and buy something else. Might as well spending the money on a different faucet design with new stoppers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great drain stopper ... This is a great pop up drain stopper. Easily installed .. holds water well. I would suggest that Delta add maybe a 1/4 of an inch to the treaded end though.

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.

Is there a smaller pop up in stainless?  I purchased the 72173 and it just looks to large for the sink. A smaller one would look so much better!!!!!

Asked by: Jjones2967
Hi, Jjones2967! Thank you for your question. We do not make another type of push pop up drain assembly that is smaller. Best Regards, Rosanna

can a bathroom pop-up drain be used with any delta bathroom faucet?

Asked by: gretchen

I didn't receive any installation instructions. Where can I find them?

Asked by: MarkS
Thank you for your question, MarkS! This is push pop up drain which will include a chrome finished tail piece that will simply fit in to connect to your existing pipes. This does include a foam gasket that will sit on top of the counter, however you may instead use a thin bead of silicone. Below is a mounting nut connected to the threaded portion of the assembly that is adjustable to provide adequate pressure. The stopper will unscrew from the flange for cleaning. Please contact us directly if you have questions or need further assistance. Best regards, Edward

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
