I read most of the reviews about this faucet and most liked the product but said it was difficult to install. Well, I am what you call a Senior and consider myself to be a pretty darn good "handyman" at home and can "MacGyver" almost anything. Difficult Install is putting it mildly. The faucet would get 5 stars if it weren't for the poor install design. First of all you need to know that the 1/2" mounting post plus both flex hoses and the pop-up control rod must all go in the same hole. I had to enlarge the standard hole in my sink top by double in my chase. The design for the pop-up rod is a joke and the way it is intended there is not enough travel to make it work properly . Like another reviewer said, move the rod off to the side. In my case I had three holes to cover so I used the base plate (which is metal, not plastic). I drilled a hole just large enough for the rod shaft and lined it up over the right hole in the sink top. You will have to cut the rod off at the bend. I looks just fine and works smoothly that way. The other problem I had was because of the imitation marble sink top. The sink side is thick and is rounded at the edge under the top which makes the faucet mounting plate not fit very well and causes you to have to mount the faucet more towards the backsplash. The short of it is - after many red and blue words, sore back and ribs, the faucet looks and works great. In fact I will order another one, grit my teeth and install it in our guest bathroom.
I ordered the 10220583 victorian center set single handle faucet, I thought I ordered brass. I received chrome, and as I am trying to get one in brass it won't let me chose brass. I can't imagine last time that I wouldn't have chosen the brass, but I will keep this one because I don't remember. Please tell me there are brass ones available!triciaharvey on Apr 4, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
