I love amazon.com, today my order came in with the drain tool Superior Tools 6020 Tub Drain Wrench, Fits 1/2-Inch and 3/8-Inch Ratchet, the Danze drain, and other goodies. The Danze came in a store display plastic form fitting pack so they arrived without scratches. I examined the Danze drain and found it is made from a heavy brass casting that was much nicer than the die cast junk I used to have.

While examining the drain I noticed the O-ring had a gouge in it. I called the tech support line and they sent a new one free of charge via priority mail. That really impressed me.

Using the tool I easily removed the old drain, and using GE Bath Silicone II I installed the Danze drain and the new overflow cover. NO more leaks, a limited lifetime warranty, no more die cast to swell and lose its finish and leak and the wife is happy.

I purchased this product to replace a similar bathtub drain assembly that had recently failed. The shipping was quick, product well packaged, and everything arrived in good order.

The instructions were thorough, tools provided were adequate, and the overall product was of high quality. The finish is exactly as portrayed in the photograph on Amazon, and the brushed nickel has a pleasant feel that is easily gripped in bath water.

Pros:
1) Attractive design
2) Very well made - this product felt sturdy and was of higher quality than the product it replaced.
3) Thorough documentation
4) Straight forward installation
5) Limited lifetime warranty

Cons:
1) Tool provided was weak, but that is common - I recommend a drain tool
2) Rubber washer is the only seal medium provided, however most fabricated bath tubs use a tapered drain construction and use plumbers putty to establish a custom seal tailored to the tub's design. I don't believe plumber's putty is a common household item, and including a small amount would have added only a few pennies to the cost while greatly increasing adaptability.

Summary: Overall I am pleased with the purchase, and would definitely recommend this product if it otherwise meets your needs aesthetically and will work with your tub drain configuration.

Product was as needed but the shipping was delayed multiple times with no explanation.

Worked very well - originally had Delta product - but it didn't fit the old tub drain threads - go figure. This unit has a bushing that will allow it to fit either size tube drain shoe. This is a good product and matches the rest of new Delta brushed stainless I put in. Quite pleased with it.

This was reasonable to install and came on time with all the parts. But the screw drain plug is annoying. When you are trying to drain the tub, you can't unscrew it a little and leave it to let the water drain out - it gets sucked down into the drain again, and stops the water flow. You have to unscrew the entire top all the way and take it off to get the water to drain out. It's not a deal-breaker, but I had expected a little better quality.

All metal replacement for old corroded tub drain. I replaced the overflow cover in about 5 minutes. Once the old drain was removed (required needle nose pliers and finesse as well as brute strength to turn and remove), installation of the new drain was smooth and easy.

After receiving my new drain I found that I have fine threads on my bath tub drain. This product is bigger and has course threads. This product has no description telling the buyer about this. I wasted my money I hope you don't.

price was perfect given the slight imperfection. However, the diameter was 3/4" and I needed to have it set in a 1/2" drain. Also, it was missing the rubber gasket which fits between the drain and the tub. I had to return it. Too bad. They should have specified the diameter of the drain ahead of time. I returned it. Now can't find where my amex points were returned to me.

This product does not work. First they tell you to place plumbers putty under the flange of the part that screws into the drain, and never tell you what to do with the washer itself. Second, the washer in the lift and drop component is less than a millimeter wide, so IT leaks as well. Do yourself a favor and find a better product.

We replaced all of our interior plumbing fixtures with Danze hardware. I intend to simply duplicate this review for each item. We like the style, the finish, the water flow, and the warranty. :-) Warranty is a good thing. Amazon offers Danze fixtures for a much lower price than most places, which is another good thing. I like good things, and Danze makes good things.
