I used this faucet to replace my existing older American Standard widespread faucet. One of the nice features of it is Delta's Spotshield technology. After using it for a while I have to say this faucet is far more resistant to spotting than my old one. Even if you get soap and little drops of toothpaste on it, it shows the spot a lot less and is super easy to clean up.
Packaging: This faucet comes in the typical thick cardboard box you see on the shelves. The faucet is packed very well and is firmly in the box. Mine was shipped to my house in it's own box wrapped in plastic and it arrived in great condition with nothing loose inside. It's padded very good as well. Installation: It comes with good instructions, all the faucet components, and a new drain so everything matches (see pictures).
The brushed finish is very nicely done. Everything you need except a few tools is included in the box. I found this faucet extremely easy to install because the quick connect connections mean you don't have to get pliers or wrenches way up behind the sink to tighten the hoses, they're down where it's easier to reach. All you need are some basic tools and follow the instructions. In my case, I had to make a quick trip back to Home Depot to get a couple new water lines, my old faucet had the wrong type connections and were too short. Other than that the installation went smooth following the install instructions.
I love the faucet, it looks great and the handles operate very smoothly. Another great feature of this is the Worry-Free drain check that keeps objects bigger than about 1/8" from going down the drain. If you drop your ring wedding ring in the sink, it's a life saver. Pros:Easy to Install, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Modern, Stylish
