second time's a charm
I would give the Leland 4.5 stars, instead of 5, because we have used them for only two months. Central Texas has very hard water. We had to replace all 3 builder-supplied bathroom faucet sets after 7 years of very light condo use. We first ordered the builder's brand (not Delta), but the quality of the finish was so bad that we returned them unused. (Build.com customer service was excellent, no arguments on the return.) Our plumber had earlier recommended Delta. Taking his advice this time, we found the Leland, which closely matched the original style. Even though the finish is described as stainless, there is not a noticeable difference from the original brushed nickel tub and shower fixtures. We like the finish, although we keep a soft cloth handy to wipe them dry, since our hard water leaves spots on everything. We expect these Delta valves to be much more durable than the originals, but also easier to replace if necessary later on. The plumber insisted on a metal pop-up drain because he said many plastic ones break when he tries to tighten them. The lever handles shut off with just a slight touch--don't push too hard! Mixing hot and cold is very easy. The water pressure from the spouts has not changed, even though the arc is higher than the originals. The spouts have attractive recessed aerators that are easy to remove, clean and put back with a key provided in the kit. So far we are completely satisfied with the Delta Leland. (Customer service at build.com was also excellent--very efficient, polite, quick delivery. I would order from them again.)

We have purchased several of these for a condominium project. In a few of them, we have had to replace the O-rings immediately after installation. Don't know whether its due to sediment in the water lines or faulty O-rings. It is frustrating.
