Delta 538-MPU-DST Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. I really love it. The most convinient faucet spout I ever had in my life. I have been always annoyed with short, low faucet spouts, but this one is really great. Tall, protruding just right away from the back of the sink, and bend so that the stream of water goes toward front. I have bought it as a replacement and it was easy to install myself (I'm 57, and quite "well rounded" woman). The only thing I would like is for the handle to be a little longer, but it looks like short handles is a trend roght now. I would recommend it my friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Understated appearance The stainless finish reduces visible water spots. The design is simple and understated but still provides an updated look that compliments my antique and blue sapphire granite counters. Lever is precise in movement for accurate water temperature control. One note, when closing the drain, the pull pulls out at an angle in the rear of fixture, which has access/clearance issue on backsplash. Make sure sink mount hole is far enough away from backsplash.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works for the application Purchased the Pfister GT42-ST0 Santiago Single Hole Bathroom Sink Faucet but it was 3/4" too high for my situation. Had to settle for the Delta product...where parts should be metal they were plastic. If I had my choice I would use the Pfister faucet instead a much better build at a lower price. Oh well fit the situation and got it almost the next day. You just can't go wrong with FAucet Direct.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad design I mounted this with the 3 hole cover plate and the tigtining bolt mounted to the faucet is offset. This in turn causes the faucet to be crooked, no other way. My only alternative after speaking with delta to no avail is to order another lav. bowl with one hole so the faucet will have more stabilaty and at least appears to be straight. If you have a 3 hole design lav. bowl I strongly suggest another brand alternative. I am a plumber and have installed plenty of faucets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised. The product matched the picture of the faucet, including the color and finish (very important), as viewed on the website. Wish I could have bought old brass color and finish (to match other fixtures) but, hey, after 25 years, styles change -- this has proved "close enough" so that I don't have to replace all bathroom fixtures. The height of the faucet is higher than previous faucet and already I like it better. (And single-handle is always my preference.) It's a Delta, so of course I expect good service from it going forward. Plumber installed them (4) with no problems. Oh, price was best, too -- compared to other web vendors. (And not on display at Home Depot or Lowe's.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best online service ever!! First time ordering from Faucet Direct because the one I bought locally didn't look right with the sink I bought. I ordered the Delta Lahara single handle faucet (chrome) on a Sunday afternoon, free shipping. Expected it by Wednesday, it arrived on Monday, 4pm. I was astounded! Had I known the service was so good I would have ordered all the pieces of my bathroom remodel from them!! Plus the price was better than other online sellers! The faucet works great and looks wonderful with my American Standard Morning semi-recessed sink. Incidentally, I ordered the sink from Home Depot (since that is where I saw it) and it took almost a week to arrive. Was really wishing I had known about Faucet Direct at that time!! Bathroom remodel is over and done and looks wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bronze option Was looking for some new fixtures for our older home. Didn't want the old bronze look that is all the rage--not contemporary enough, but was working with a great mirror for the powder room that has gold/bronze framing. Forget stainless or chrome. Looked in all of the home remodeling stores and found no happy medium until I spotted this finish on the FD web site. Blends beautifully--fresh and new and DIFFERENT. What a great selection to pick from! I had a question and received a quick response as well via email before I ordered. Happy with the faucet, towel ring, and tp holder. Looks awesome with the granite. Out of the ordinary!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from loose handle, bad drain The handle on this faucet is very loose and hard to control hot vs. cold water. The drain is very hard to seal tightly. It has been adjusted several times and it is still hard to keep water in the bowl. Disappointed in this Delta product.

  • Does the stopper rod operate at an angle or go straight such that it will not hit an undermount sink underneath?

    A. The rod itself is angled, but pulls straight up.

  • Does the seam on the 538-MPU-DST mean the faucet has 2 distinct parts or is the seam decorative only? Also, are any parts plastic? or all brass?

    A. The Delta 538-MPU-DST is made up of two parts combining together to make the faucet a whole. It also a decorative touch as well. The entire faucet is solid metal with the exception of the ceramic valve.

  • Can this faucet be used with a vessel sink?

    A. The Delta 538-MPU-DST can be used with almost any sink if it has enough physical space to be installed. In this case, I would recomend finding a specific vessel you would like to install and make sure this faucet is tall enough to be installed with it. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

  • Does the water come out at an angle from this Delta 538 faucet? What about from the Lahara 3538? Angled water flow?

    A. The water would come out at a slight angle on both these models.

  • Does this Delta have flexible supply lines and what is length?

    A. The Delta 538-MPU-DST does have flexible lines and they are 35" in length.

  • Does this product consist of 2 pieces with a seam running from the spout tip to the base?

    A. The Delta 538-MPU-DST does have a seam.

  • What is "WaterSense Certified" mean?

    A. Watersense certified means the faucet meets certain guidelines set by the E.P.A. for low flow or water conserving products.

  • What size hole does the Delta 538-MPU-DST faucet require?

    A. The Delta 538-MPU-DST needs a 1-1/8" to 1-1/2" hole.

  • Will the Lahara single hole faucet work well without the escutchen with Kohler 2833 vessel sink? What is distance from deck to aerator without the escutchon?

    A. The Delta 538-MPU-DST spout height is 3-15/16", the Kohler 2833 is only 1-11/16" so they will work together just fine.

  • Is the stainless steel similar to a brushed nickel or is it more of a brushed chrome?

    A. To my eye, the Stainless Steel finish for the Delta 538-MPU-DST is more similar to a Brushed Nickel finish.

  • Is there a matching toilet handle that goes with this faucet in stainless steel?

    A. There is not a matching toilet tank lever for the Delta 538-MPU-DST. I recommend picking a nasic design in stainless steel.

  • What is the difference in the 538-DST and the 538-MPU-DST

    A. The Delta 538-MPU-DST includes a metal pop up drain. The 538-DST will have the typical plastic/metal coated pop up drain.

  • Where is this made?

    A. Delta is in Indiana.

  • Can this faucet be used in a commercial application?

    A.

    The Delta 538-MPU-DST can be used in commercial setting.

  • Where is the seam located?

    A.

    The seam, or escutcheon, does come with the 538-MPU-DST but it is an optional piece that doesn't have to be installed if you don't need it.
