Had someone install my new faucet who is not much of a handyman, and even tho he took longer than I expected, he finally got it installed. Granted, most of his issues were with getting the old one out, because it had a lot of calcium buildup. I would say, if he could install it, most men could. I love the way it looks and much prefer having two handles instead of one like my old one. Another feature that helped me decide to buy this faucet is the higher arc of the faucet.
Very easy to install. The handles turn extremely easy. It looks elegant in my bathroom. The one thing I think that could be improved is the plastic stopper and flange. You can kind of tell it is made of a different material than the faucet.
It looks very nice. The only thing I was surprised about is, the stoppers are not designed to hold water in the sink for any long length of time. When I spoke with the Delta folks, they said they are designed that way so as to prevent overflow should some leave the water running. That actually did not make much sense to me since, first because the loss of water is like a slight leak and every bathroom sink I can remember having has the, what I call, the overflow hole near the top of the sink. Anyway, I asked them to just please send me larger seals as I do from time to time use the sink to soak things. They sent me 2 new of the pop-up fixtures. I had actually bought (from you) 2 sets, one the Delta Silverton (2) and the other set (2) is Delta Haywood. I still think the slightly larger seal would be the best solution and certainly less cost (actually no cost) to install. I suppose I should ask you if you can provide those seals.
I really like the look of this faucet. Goes well with:
Foremost Series 1920 Pedestal Combo Bathroom Sink in White. The only thing is that the faucet handles are kind of long on our petite sink and we like to keep a small tumbler on the left side of the sink. The handle bumps the tumbler. Our solution; We got a holder for the tumbler to attach to the wall.
We changed our bathroom decor to oil bronze fixtures so got this Delta faucet help complete the change. It has a great finish and vintage style. The directions were very easy to follow and the installation was easy to complete. The faucet was packaged well so it was well protected and arrived in excellent condition. The directions called for using silicone. That was our only problem. We didn't have any on hand cause all the other faucets we have installed have called for plumber's putty. It would have been nice if there was a small tube of that included.
Pros: Looks Great, Easy to Install, Strong Water Pressure, Stylish
This is a very unique and elegantly styled faucet. It is a very nice faucet. The installation was straight forward. The directions were easy to understand and simple to follow. It is called Venetian Bronze. In my opinion, it is darker, closer to black, than the typical oil rubbed bronze. When the faucet arrived, it was packaged very nicely and arrived free of scratches or defects.
Pros: Looks Great, Easy to Install, Modern, Strong Water Pressure, Stylish
