Delta 551-DST Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big Billboard Ad - not what I had in mind Haven't installed this yet. Seems nice and sturdy as other reviewers noted, but VERY unhappy with the Giant DELTA label - about an inch high, spanning entire width of faucet column base, and incredibly high visibility. Might as well be a neon sign. Has anyone else come up with a way to remove this? I couldn't see anything like this in the online image, or else I never would have bought this. Big manufacturer label screaming from the front is not what I consider a hallmark of fine bathroom appointments. Will be sending back if I can't figure out a way to remove this horrendous obnoxious label.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classicly modern Great faucets for the price! Not only did they arrive in perfect condition, they came MUCH sooner than expected! I bought them to replace older pull-out style faucets, but needed to install them before we were going to install granite counters. It all works fine because of the two escutcheon plates that come with these faucets. My husband installed them easily and they will be easy to replace with the single hole escutcheon when we get around to finishing the reno. We aren't planning on changing out the rest of the fixtures anytime soon, so the dryden series goes beautifully with the existing chrome pieces. I would order again from Faucet-Direct again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful faucet I love the look of this faucet and it works fine. My only tiny complaint (although I still would not choose another faucet because I like the look of this one) is the small opening that the water comes out. Still love it though - very classy looking. One big drawback is that I bought towell & tp racks to match but there is no toilet handle to match - very frustrating!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great faucet We needed new faucets for our master bathroom and looked briefly at the do it yourself home stores. We couldn't find anything decent and with the new trend into brushed nickel, which I like also, the choices for alternative finishes was dismal. Without wasting any more footwork time I went on to and found exactly what I wanted. It shipped quickly and the customer service is excellent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Single is the way to go This is a great single handle faucet. I like the look of the traditional three hole faucet but you can't beat this for function and easy cleaning. No splash problem, looks great with the Kohler under-mount rectangular sink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best single faucet I had been searching for new single handle faucets to redo our bathroom. Found these on line and read the reviews. I was a little skeptical because I have never orded this way before. I decided to take a chance and they were perfect. Love the quality and modern look. They really sparkle and are easy to install and use. Great choice. Looks great with our new granite tops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look and function! I have done extensive remodels in the past year, a kitchen and two baths. Used Delta and ordered them from - great service, fast, and great price! Delta won me over after my newly ordered kitchen faucet malfunctioned and I called them about the problem - within 36hrs a replacement part was on my doorstep!
Date published: 2010-09-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good choice! This looks so good in our new bathroom. The water doesn't splash, even with your hands under it. I love the one handle water adjustment, too.

  • does it come with the option of a wide base

    A. The Delta 551-DST does come with the optional escutcheon.
  • Does the drain lift level come out at an angle (eg, is additional clearance needed)?

    A. The Delta 551-DST lift rod will come out at a very slight angle, there is no extra clearance needed.
  • How would you characterize the color of Venetian Bronze, brown or more black tone?

    A. The Delta 551-DST is closer to a dark brown than a black.
  • Do I have to order the wide base or does it come with this product?

    A. You will not need to purchase the escutcheon (wide base) as it comes with this product. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
  • I'm using this faucet over a vessel bowl. Can I order the extension for the additional height through you?

    A. Please see Delta model # 751-DST which is for a vessel sink application. Unfortunately the riser for this Faucet to make it into the 751-DST Height is not available by itself. You must purchase the Delta 751-DST if you desire the Faucet with Vessel Height.
  • Is this faucet all-metal construction or metal/plastic?

    A. The Delta 551-DST is made with all brass construction with plastic internal parts.
  • Does brilliant stainless look like brushed nickel?

    A. The brillian stainless finish for the Delta 551-DST is very similar to brushed nickel.
  • Is this faucet diamond seal?

    A. The Delta 551-DST does have the diamond seal.
  • Does brilliant stainless look like brushed nickel??

    A. The brillian stainless finish for the Delta 551-DST is very similar to brushed nickel.
  • Does this faucet have an aerator?

    A. Yes, the Delta 551-DST does have an aerator.
  • How far from the backsplash should this be mounted?

    A. The Delta 551-DST should be installed at least 2" from backsplash.
  • Is there a soap dispenser that coordinates with the Dryden faucet?

    A. Delta does not offer a soap dispenser in the Dryden collection.
  • What does low level lead compliant mean, is lead used to make the faucet?

    A. Low lead compliant refers to a faucet that will meet the requirements of low lead laws in certain states like California and Vermont. There are always minor amounts of lead in the metals used in the manufacture of faucets but only a few states have laws which require you to purchase faucets with a certain level of lead used in production. The Delta DST Faucets are compliant with these laws because the water never touches metal that contains lead.
  • One of the other photo's of this faucet shows a wide base that the faucet sits on. Can you please tell me what this is?

    A. The plate under the faucet is what's called an escutcheon and it is included with the faucet. It usually acts as a cover for other holes in your counter/sink, such as going from a three hole installation to a one hole.
  • I would like to install this faucet on a granite vanity top and I am wondering what the maximum counter thickness this faucet can accomodate?

    A. The Delta 551-DST can be mounted on a counter top up to 2-7/8" thick.
  • The escutcheon is 6" long, but how wide and tall is it?

    A. The escutcheon is between 1-3/4" and 2" and is 1/4" tall.
  • Is the drain assembly plastic or metal?


    The Delta 551-DST has a metal drain with pop-up type fitting with plated flange and stopper. 





  • Are there any plastic parts in this faucet?


    The Delta 551-DST is going to be made of solid brass. There will be some inner working pieces that are not metal however.
