This was the second Glacier Bay faucet we bought for our new tub installation. The first one. an Edgewood bath faucet, turned out to be too short to reach the tub when installed on the deck. We didn't know we needed a Roman tub faucet. This one fit the bill nicely and is pretty easy to install. (I installed it temporarily on the plywood sub-deck to make sure it worked, then removed it to install the cement board and ceramic tile tub surround.)
I was impressed that the lines supplied to connect the hot and cold water valves to the spout are braided stainless steel. However, the stiffness of these lines makes hookup more difficult, especially if you have limited space under the tub deck. They need to be routed so that you don't kink the lines. I solved part of this problem by placing the valves 12 inches apart instead of the usual 8 inches. I would love to include a picture of my final installation but we are still waiting for the tile we ordered from HD two weeks ago.
One complaint I have is that the installation instructions say you need holes in the deck of 1-3/8 inches and 1-1/8 inches, neither of which is a common hole saw size. The fact is, the valve bodies will fit through a standard 1-1/4 inch hole and the spout will fit through a 1 inch hole. I found this out after I had already ordered diamond hole saws in the odd sizes specified to drill the holes through the tile and cement board..

I have had this faucet for more than two years. I have had no problems with it, it still looks nice, my step-dad installed it and had little trouble (he is not a plumber). I like it so much I am looking for the sink and shower faucets that match!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Skipper1952 Basic, Not too stylish
This is just an average faucet, not too stylish,but it was inexpensive. Builder had a tough time installing it and adjusting the handles. Hasn't leaked so far. Awesome water flow, though. Would recommend if you don't want to spend much and have not much style to look at.

This is the same as a previous review. We installed this faucet on a roman tub. The hot water side is barely more than a trickle. The cartridge on the hot water side was changed out and it did not fix the problem. It will end up costing us much more in plumbers fees than we saved by buying a cheap faucet. I'm having similar issues with the matching Glacier Bay Builders tub and shower faucet as well. Guess you get what you pay for.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Alleycat Cost me a fortuen to fix
They look great. BUT after 18 months, the cold tap totally failed. Spinning uselessly.
Called a plumber - they only way to fix this is to replace the entire faucet, which means ripping off the tile, cutting through the wood, replacing the set from underneath the tub, replacing the wood and tile. Cost: about $600 plus the cost of a new tub faucet. Read all the reviews here - failure by these products happens all too often. I will not be buying another one from Glacier Bay - they seem cheap, but they turn out to be really expensive, after the necessary repairs!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jutpro Slow drip
I purchased these Glacier Bay faucet for a bathroom renovation. They happened to be on sale at the time. When the contractor installed them I noticed water drops dripping from the spout. If you did not pay close attention you would miss it and not realize that the faucet drips water because the water dripped at such a very slow pace. Unfortunately for us the contractor had already placed the tiles around the bathtub so he had to cut a hole in the drywall in order to remove them. This cost us more money in the long run in having to cut through the drywall. I returned them to the store for another brand.
I am very disappointed and will never purchase this product again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by agb40 I love my faucet
It has the reach we needed for the soaker tub we had. It has great water flow. It fills the tub in a very short time. I like the way it looks. It goes well with what I already had.
