Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ffffff Not for commercial use
I do building maintenance in an office space and have a dozen single handle delta faucets that use this cartridge. I typically replace one of these a month because they fail so often. After inspecting a few failed valves it appears that a friction washer inside tears when the faucet valve is pushed too hard.
For residential use these are probably fine. the valve does work well when it's new and without heavy use will probably have no issues.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gater Seldom Shuts Off Completely
Have bought two replacements for the original cartridge, and both of these started giving problems shortly after installation. The problem is: they become very difficult to completely shut off. Unless you slam the handle down hard, right in the center, the faucet will either drip or have a steady trickle. I have to constantly check that the thing is completely shut off, especially if somebody else in the family uses the kitchen faucet. Don't know whether this is a generic problem with the valves, or whether my replacements were from a bad batch. But, I'm ready to replace the whole faucet and nozzle. Lot of work and unnecessary expense. Big disappointment in this Delta product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MGLnFFX Replacement was a cinch
Had similar issues to another homeowner... valve wouldn't shut off completely without moving it around at the bottom of the "v". Tried graphite to no avail. Eventually called Delta and they sent me a replacement for free. Fixed in <10 minutes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Westiepop Good quality and easy installation
First time I changed the cartridge on this faucet. Decided to go with authentic Delta part, even though a couple dollars more than generic brands. Good quality part was a cinch to install; literally took just a few minutes. Very pleased with the transaction and would recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rls1 Decent quality
The old one lasted about 6 years in a busy house . The replacement was simple to do and hopefully is around again in another 6 years.
