High quality, classy faucet that's affordable!
on March 7, 2011
We just installed this faucet last week and love it so far. Installation was mostly straightforward. I'm a woman and I installed it MYSELF! I love that it came with special tools designed for tightening some of the nuts. The only tool I needed was a wrench to tighten the water lines. The most difficult part of installation was trying to work under the sink and turning off the water supply- the knob was stuck!
I love the magnetic spray head. We used to have a pull-out faucet (versus this pull-DOWN) faucet and it was always a pain getting the head to go back into the faucet without the hose twisted and jamming. The pulling oepration is always smooth with little resistance.
Another HUGE plus of this faucet is the sprayer button. Many faucets we considered required you to hold down the spray button to keep the sprayer going. This faucet has a switch so you just select the sprayer or the regular flow and it stays on that setting without having to hold the button in.
The handle operation seems very sturdy and smooth - definitely not rickety.
The soap pump was super easy to install as well. The top part that you push down on is plastic, but I'm sure it is easily replaceable down the road if it ever gets nasty. With frequent cleaning/soaking, I'm sure it will last a while. The piece that attaches to the sink is stainless steel, however, so as long as that's durable, I'm okay with the top part being plastic.
I am 100% satisfied with this faucet. It was such a great value for how durable and sturdy it is. We tried this one out at Menards as well as another Delta model that was in the $300 range and they both felt the same. Our faucet was on sale at Menards for $165 (on sale from $188 regular price).
And as always, the lifetime warranty is great reassurance, and is a major reason we chose Delta over a knock-off brand.
