Easy to install, solid build quality

I was really impressed with how easy this faucet was to install. I've put in a couple of bathroom faucets in the past, and the worst part was getting the pop-up drain to function properly. It always took a lot of adjusting (and swearing) and even then it would not always work well.

This particular model has a unique system for the pop-up. There's a cable with a plastic hood that screws on to a port on the drain pipe stem. That's it! No levers, stems or clips to deal with. Fast, easy and it works well.

The overall build quality is good. It's not as hefty feeling as a top of the line Kohler, but quite good and better than expected giving the price point. Smooth action to turn on/off.

The drain also is somewhat unique in that it does not require caulk or plumbers putty to make a seal. There's a crushable foam washer that makes the seal. I was a bit uncertain about this, but it works - no leaks.

My only quibble would be that the supply lines (which are included) are a bit on the narrow side. But they are good quality -- braided stainless, so there's almost no chance of a blow-out, and color coded for hot/cold so you can't make a mistake.

Very pleased with the look - clean lines and more importantly, easy to keep clean.

Highly recommend.

This is not only very nice to look at but it feels sturdy and heavy, nothing worse than a flimsy piece of bath or kitchen appliance. This is a very nice faucet and I love the one handle bar, very easy and convenient when you don't have the time to fumble with knobs and temperature settings, I've used this style since I was a kid growing up in Poland and I'm still a fan.

This American Standard Reliant 3 Single Control Centerset Lavatory faucet replaces a 25-year-old Delta model in my art studio bath.    I was delighted with the package. The unit is a nice heavyweight shiny chrome with high quality braided fleexible hoses with 3/8 inch compression connectors. The unit is manufactured in Mexico-not a plus in my book-but it looks to be of good quality.    Unique to American Standard is the Speed Connect Drain which offers fewer …
