Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HandyMan123456789 Decent faucet but the drain assembly is garbage.
This faucet is nearly identical to one in the "Hampton" line from American Standard. However, the Hampton version comes with a chrome plated solid brass drain assembly. The Williamsburg model is about $40-50 cheaper and comes with a plastic one-piece drain assembly. I already had the Hampton model in one bathroom and opted to purchase this Williamsburg model to save a little money in another bathroom. That was a mistake. The drain flange on the plastic drain assembly that comes with this faucet is made of thin sheet metal wrapped around the plastic and is very poor quality. In fact, it rusted within weeks of installation and stained my white porcelain sink! I called American Standard customer service and they agreed to send me a new complete metal drain assembly for a "Hampton" faucet. I will try to remove the rust stains from my sink while I wait for the part. Totally annoyed with junky product. What a waste of time. You get what you pay for! Shame on me for cheaping out.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SteveSpy Cheaply made. Avoid.
Installation was easy and it looks nice, but 30 days in and it is falling part. It was on the value side, but just not a great product. The faucet is split and comes undone at the seam. The handles are not screwed in; just held in place with plastic tines. My young kids pull the handles off with ease and leave them around the house. disappointed..

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SacramentoDIY Waste of money
Bought this about 3 months ago. Hot water all of a sudden had little pressure. Looked under sink. "Braided" tubing has a kink in it. removed tubing, realigned it. still wants to kink. Upsetting have to replace $21.00 worth of parts on an $80.00 fixture. Do the math. 25% of cast replacement. Thank God Home Depot doesn't sell cars. Low price for a poor quality product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dion Not for everyday use
We installed this model 4 years ago and now have to replace it. One handle is seized up entirely and the other is starting to stick. To paraphrase our plumber, cheap material inside the handle has broken down and the unit is rusting from the inside out. The bottom edges of spout and handles are ruffling up and the is a ring of rust around all the parts that no amount of diligent scrubbing can clean. If you want to save money and plan on using it in a little used powder room it may look nice for a while, but I would not recommend this for everyday use.

We bought this 7 years ago from Home Depot. It's only sold here. The handles never did work right. One would spin and occasionally turn on or off the hot water and could be lifted off. The cold worked fine. The spigot was loose constantly even though I tightened the brass bolt under it. Now the handles spin with no action on the hot water side. I called American standard to get replacement plastic parts to hook up the handle to the hot water cartridge. They did send them free. I will try this once, if things don't improve I will trash this thing and buy another brand.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kenn Quality issues - hot water valve stopped working after a year
I thought American Standard would be superior product. Something I would not have to repair or replace in the near future.
For reasons unknown to me, the valve simply began leaking, then stopped entirely.
Replacing the valve was not difficult, just unexpected.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Powayhandyman Subject to Corrosion
Installed easily enough.
About 3 years later, wife could not turn hot handle.
After massive force, was able to pry shaft out of bell. Corrosion had built up on handle shaft and locked it in bell.
Sanded off corrosion on shaft and hole in bell. I'm guessing corrosion came from wet hands on handles. would have liked to cover handle shaft with petroleum jelly but all I had was Plumber's grease.
A year later, wife is dissatisfied and wants different faucet. Corrosion of screw that locks handle to valve, bell to its pedestal and pedestal to brass faucet body. A real pain to remove.
Drain assembly came out easily.
You should put Petroleum jelly on all threads including bell to its pedestal which you may not see because it comes screwed together.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim1673 Very Easy Installation of bathroon sink faucet
I bought my first American Standard, Williamsburg model, 8" bathroon sink faucet for our powder room, but after I discovered how easy it was to install, I went back to Home Depot and bought three more so that every bathroom would have one. I hate changing faucet washers and the Williamsburg comes with ceramic disks and that means no washers to replace... ever!! The installation was a snap! It also has the best sink stopper system I've ever used. When you pull-up the lever the flow of water is completely, 100%, stopped. No slow drain problems with this baby.
