We ordered this to give our bathroom a little uniqueness which it definitely did. We have a clear bowl vessel sink. The installation was the easiest I have ever done since I only have to drill one hole through a thick slate countertop. Connections to my existing plumbing were a piece of cake with flex line from the hardware store. Installed in less than 10 minutes. Make sure the sink you are using has good drainage because the faucett can dump a lot of water. This is not low flow by any means. That can be controlled by the faucett hookups, but increases the noise. On that note, this faucett is a little noisier than I thought it would be when it is running. Sounds like it may be coming from the mixer that is in the top of the lever. Really isn't that bad. Looks great, but be prepared to clean the clear glass!
