Customer Questions & Answers

Does this come with a 3-hole plate?

Our sink has 3 holes on a 4-in spread. Does this faucet come with a mounting plate to cover the other two holes?
Asked by: Jeff
Yes it does.

The included pop up drain appears to be chrome in the photo. Is it chrome, or is it actually brushed nickel like the faucet?

Asked by: Bill
The pop-up is brushed nickel to match the faucet. It comes with a protective plastic cap to remove after installing.

Virtus Single Hole Single-Handle High-Arc Vessel Bathroom Faucet with Pop-Up Drain and Overflow in Brushed Nickel is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 27.

The Kraus pop-up drain was another matter. The drain would not stop leaking. After a call to Kraus by the plumber, he was told “We cannot guarantee our drain on any sink (I have a Kohler) other than our own. No where in the description of this drain does it inform the customer of this. The Kraus drain is being swapped out for a Moen pop-up and will be returned to Home Depot. Meanwhile, the time for the plumber to discover the Kraus drain works on only Kraus products has to be paid.

The faucet is beautiful and we have no trouble with it. However, the drain has corroded around the edge of the pop up area and is showing signs of erosion along the top where water would not be collecting. It is in a seldom-used bathroom. We have 3 bathroom drains, all different manufacturers, and it is the only bathroom drain that has shown this problem. There is a lifetime warranty so I just wrote to Kraus.

Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The "WOW" factor. From when you first receive this faucet, through the installation, you will find nothing but quality. Even the weight of the box is impressive. Kraus takes great pride in their packaging. The faucet comes in a "gift" type bag to keep it from getting scratched during shipping. This faucet has an exceptional appearance as you can tell from the picture. It is brass construction with ceramic valve. Even the drain is brass construction and is shipped in a separate box in bubble wrap. The faucet comes with a polishing cloth. The supply lines for hot and cold are color coded. The supply lines are braided stainless steel and are already attached to the faucet. I have bought other faucets, which come with plastic supply lines, which can't even compare to the braided stainless. The faucet has enough threads so it will fit even the thickest counters. This faucet comes with it's own "T" wrench for installation. Here's a tip: To avoid misplacing or losing the "T" wrench, tape it to the inside of the cabinet when you are done. This way you will never have an issue should you decide to change out this absolutely beautiful faucet. Which, I don't think you ever will! The bottom line is: This is one gorgeous high quality faucet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handsome Faucet, Very easy install This is a fantastic faucet. First I pulled it out of the box I was immediately impressed with its weight--it is heavy and solid metal! There are NO "metal looking" plastic parts as is common in faucets. The weight of the handle is designed with intention. Beautiful industrial design; I can tell a lot of thought was put into this faucet both visually and in usability. The faucet was very easy to install. I have installed several faucets in my home, however, this one was the one with the least amount of snags. Plastic parts found in other faucets break over time, and this faucet has NO loose plastic parts to install. Everything worked correctly during install. The instructions were very easy to follow. Almost too easy; basically all pictures with numbers (see photo). I have done faucets before so when I saw the instructions it seemed obvious to me, however, I can see how the instructions might not be sufficient for someone who is a first-time installer. Also, there are instructions for the faucet itself, but not for installing the pop-up drain. Odd. Easy to install the pop-up drain. It includes built-in seals so no need for caulking (although caulking never hurts!) Unscrew the top of the drain and insert the bottom up through the sink basin; screw back in. A wrench may be useful for tightening in this instance. Kraus thought of everything. The aerator is made of silicon, which is resistant to calcium build-up (and "non-stick" for debris in general). Drain plug includes silicon seal rings so job can be done without caulking. The hoses are labelled "Hot" and "Cold" which fosters quick installation. The kit includes a special wrench to install the faucet, and also includes a cleaning cloth for the faucet. Brushed nickel gets water stained easily, so the cloth comes in handy. I keep it in the medicine cabinet above the sink. The kit is supposed to include Teflon tape, according to the instructions, but my box did not include this. No worries as I always keep it on-hand; I am sure it was just a fluke. You will need to provide your own crescent wrench to attach the valves to the plumbing. Recommended! P.S. In the photo there is a plate cover on my sink covering the three holes. The faucet does NOT come with such a plate. So if you are replacing for a three-hole sink, be sure to purchase one of these plates as I did. P.P.S. If you are wondering why in the video the water pressure decreases when the faucet is turned to severe cold, it's due to a "feature" of my home's plumbing. NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FAUCET, so don't worry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice It's simple, easy to clean, and easy to install... some recommendations: *be careful to pay attention to the orientation of the curved soft washer on the drain, flipping this will get you a leaky drain. *install the water lines prior to setting the faucet into the top - it's hard to tighten them from below in such a small space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking faucet This is a very sturdy, well-made faucet. Excellent fittings, love the pop-up drain, very clean lines and fits well in a contemporary bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Faucet I have ever owned I had always only allowed one brand of faucet to be installed in any property that I owned. That has changed since I received this Virtus faucet. It seems vary well built. The Virtus faucet is vary heavy compared to even the best faucets that I have used in the past. I have tried to find bathtub/shower faucets that would match the Virtus faucet but have been unable to find one. I will be replacing all of my faucets over to the Virtus faucet as I have any problem with them. I would highly recommend the Virtus faucet to anyone wanting a high quality faucet.
