Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Danno Have to seal the bottom tube with thread sealer
After fighting this for quite a while, I realized that you have to seal the threads from the bottom tube to the upper assembly. I did not notice that the bottom tube unscrews from the top until after the entire thing was installed. I am not a plumber, and a set of instructions would have been very beneficial. The Delta that it replaced did not have a separable tube and I did not notice until on my way to return it, because I was sure it was defective. I was wrong, and put thread sealer on it and it was fine. Teflon tape did not work. Use thread sealer.

I bought four of these with a chrome finish. All of them leaked between the smooth tube and larger rough sleeve on the bottom - was able to seal with silicon sealer after installation. Two leaked through the threads on the brass nut - had to take apart, apply teflon tape and reassemble (this was after I'd installed so had to remove and reinstall).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by carl not bad, but installation instructions lacking
Most complaints appear to be related to installation and a lack
of awareness that there are 3 pieces to the drain assembly :
Here is how to do it :
Unscrew tailpiece from body.
Apply a bead of plumbers putty to underside of flange.
Unscrew flange from drain body (carefully, to avoid removing putty).
With a finger, slightly increase the gap between putty & flange threads.
Rotate the gasket, washer & nut towards the bottom of drain body.
Wrap 3 turns of Teflon tape around the upper threads of the drain body
Hold flange with putty over the sink drain hole. Push drain body up through the hole as far as you can. Thread drain body onto flange (being careful with the putty underneath).
Rotate drain body so stopper rod hole faces the back of sink.
Push flange evenly down into sink drain hole.
Rotate nut to raise gasket & washer. Tighten until flat upper surface of gasket is in contact with sink (be careful not to overtighten).
Wipe off excess putty around flange.
Apply pipe sealant to tailpiece threads.
Hand-tighten tailpiece into drain body and wipe off excess sealant.
If tailpiece is connected to 1-1/2 inch PVC fitting, be sure to use a reducing washer on the tailpiece.

Very difficult to seal fine thread connections. I had to redo my installation three times. I did finally work!

I also bought this unit and it leaked between the pvc pipe connection and the metal tube extending down from the top.
