Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gongo Finally got the right one (seats)
About a month ago, I purchased the universal faucet repair kit as water was dripping from the base, aerator and the handle areas. It fixed the problem except after about a week, the water start dripping from the aerator again. I bought the non Delta seats and replaced but water kept dripping. Finally bought this Delta Model # RP4993 and took care of the aerator drip problem. I magnified this Delta RP4993 and the other seats to compare and found out that the seat area that contacts the ball assembly is shaped differently - the RP4993 is much flatter and the non Delta seat has a rounded surface. Needless to say, the RP4993's flatter surface has more contact area preventing water escaping causing the aerator drip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LoveToDIY 5 minutes, $5 to fix a leaky faucet
After watching my bathroom faucet drip for a couple of weeks I decided to see how difficult it would be to fix. I am reasonably handy but have little plumbing experience. Delta has a 5 minute instructional video online that uses a single lever faucet but double handle faucets are quite similar. After reading reviews of the Danco brand I decided to spend the extra $3 and get the Delta kit. Worked exactly like the video and was done in 5 minutes. No more leak. Took one point off of value because they are more than twice the competitor and I cannot say firsthand they work any better. I can say they worked as advertised and are much cheaper than calling a plumber.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WWfromMN Right parts for super easy fix
Right parts for a super easy fix of my 13 year old Delta faucet. The faucet would drip when the handle was turned off in the center. Drip would stop when handle was raised slightly to the right. It took $5 and 10 minutes to fix and I couldn't be happier. Props to HD for the plumbing rep recommending the genuine Delta parts. If you replace these every 10 years, it's worth the extra few dollars for the genuine parts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeMac Works as advertised and easy to install
I had originally purchased the Danco RP4993 when I couldn't locate the Delta RP4993 at my local store. I figured I would give them a try to fix my leaky faucet. When compared to the existing spring and seat they visually looked like a match. After a half hour of trying to get the seat installed unsuccessfully, I gave up on this product. I went back out and purchased the Delta RP4993. Within seconds I was able to get the spring and seat installed with the Delta. Do yourself a favor and pay the extra few dollars to buy the Delta version. The product works great and my leaky faucet is fixed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VGVG1 Excellent part, better than imitation Danco parts
I had the chance to compare these original (OEM) seats and springs repair kit to Danco brand imitation Delta repair kit. The quality of the Delta seats is obviously superior. The material is more supple and the surface is very smooth, whereas the Danco seats seem to be made of poor quality material. I would definitely recommend this over the Danco parts, even though it is slightly more expensive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by k88wong Works perfectly
Brought the third party repair kit, thinking it wouldn't make a different and save some money.
Replace the seat and spring, problem was it started to leak water from the handle. Replace it
with the Delta brand, and the water stop leaking. Basically the fit is perfect with the Delta brand.
So save yourself some time and buy this product.
