Delta 578-DST Reviews
Rated 3 out of
Delta 578-DST Nice faucet but not without flawsWhen choosing a faucet for our bath remodel I wanted single lever control, ceramic disk valve, all metal construction and simple elegant design. This fit the bill perfect. This faucet is heavy and solid feeling when you hold it.
Before I discuss the minor negatives I found I want to let you know that I have a very keen eye for detail and notice things that most never see. One issue is the seat that is cast into the bottom of the base where the gasket sits to seal against the vanity top is not level. So when you tighten it down it does not sit perfectly perpendicular to the vanity top... It tilts to the right ever so slightly. The other issue is the indent in the stem coming out of the valve; its a flat spot on the stem where the set screw for the handle tightens down on. Its offset slightly of center, maybe about a degree to two to the left. So when you tighten the set screw the handle is off center ever so slighty. Again both of these items will never be noticed by most. My wife didn't notice until 6 weeks after it was installed when I pointed it out. She said "I don't know how you notice these things"
So in summary, we are very happy with the faucet and overall its solid and a joy to use but at this price you would think they could of eliminated the minor flaws I found which is why I give it 3 stars.

Great Product from Great CompanyThe faucets were just what we wanted! Couldn't find anything like them at local retailers. They were in perfect condition and came instantly. FaucetDirect.com is a fine Internet company.

perfectEverything I wanted, I got in this faucet. Delta quality, beautiful curves/lines and single level control. In fact, I bought this after I told my parents to buy the same one.

Perfect Solution!This faucet was an excellent choice for the single hole installation on our marble vanity top. It was a first purchase at FaucetDirect.com. Their prices are great and everything from the ordering process to shipping went effortlessly. I would definitely consider this company and this product manufacturer in the future!

Nice looking product at reasonable priceI needed to replace a powder room faucet. This one had some style and looks great at a reasonable price. Have ordered several items from Build.com for my house. They are helpful and responsive to problems and inquiries.

Love our faucets!Hesitant at first, we just purchased one faucet and installed it ourselves. The faucet installation was a breeze and the overall quality and design was so perfect that we purchased a second one for the other bathroom. For do-it-yourself-ers: the faucet and extra long supply lines are great, but the drain stopper was a challenge.
A. It does not look like we carry that product. In this case, i recommend calling Delta directly at 800-345-3358.
Does this have the "drain accessory" - I bought one in January that included it, but this doesn't list it in the product details when I compare it with others. THanks
A. The Delta 578-DST does include the drain assembly with it.
What is the difference between the Delta 578-DST and the Delta 578MPU-DST
A. The Delta 578-MPU-DST is the low lead version of the same faucet which is California and Vermont compliant.
Will this model be too high for just a regular mount sink? I read that it is almost 8 1/2 inches high. Need to know before ordering
A. The Delta 578-DST is designed for either an undermount, or self-rimming lavatory sink.
what clearance is required for the pull up drain stopper?
A. I called and talked to Delta about this question. They referred me to their specification sheet because they can't give out clearance information over the phone. They said if the specification sheet's dimensions don't help to call their technical assistance and they can help you out with all questions.
Can this be used without the escutcheon?
A. The Delta 578-DST can be used with out the escutcheon plate.
What about water spots with this faucet?
The Delta 578-DST does not have the option of a spot resist finish. The Brilliance Stainless and Venetian Bronze would be the easiest finishes to clean and keep water spots off.
