Cassidy Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet with Touch2O® Technology 4.6 5 17 17
Not happy with very expensive Faucet. Touch feature worked great for a month. Then it started to work inconsistently. Now, mostly not working. Worked great for a month. Then it started to work inconsistently. Then stopped working completely. Changed batteries. Had no effect. Touch feature only worked on lower portion of faucet, not upper part which is most convenient place for touch feature to be useful. Then it started working again, don't know why. Now have discovered touch feature does not work when faucet is warm from hot water. Took video of cycling back and forth between cold and hot water and working and not working by touch feature on upper portion of faucet neck that swivels from side to side….. March 23, 2014
The faucet works as promised and is very handy Installation on top mounted sink that is not perfectly rectangular turned out to be an inconvenience. The insulation mount had to be cut because of a scallop designed Kohler sink. Other than that little problem the faucet is both attractive and functional. April 21, 2013
In LOVE! Super easy to use and install and looks very sleek! May 3, 2013
We love this faucet! We ordered this faucet on a Monday and had it by Thursday night. We had a plumber install it, everything went smoothly, that's as technical as I can get. We chose this faucet for the Touch2o feature and absolutely love it. It's very easy to get used to. We had the faucet installed with the handle facing forward as other reviewers for similar faucets suggested and I would recommend that as well. The pull out hose works smoothly, goes back into place easily and securely. The faucet is large (compared to the one it replaced), but we are very pleased with the purchase. January 17, 2013
Not so enthused! The touch-matic faucet is a great concept, but it doesn't work for my particular situation. I use rubber gloves most of the time, and the faucet "touch" feature doesn't work with gloves. So I have to take my glove off to touch it to get it to work. Also, it will shut itself off sometimes without my touching it. My husband is constantly frustrated with it because he can't adjust to seeing when the faucet should be working with touch and when it doesn't (such as when I have manually turned it off). I love the pull down faucet--very convenient for rinsing out the sink. I don't like the thinner stream of water that comes out the spout--it has more force than my previous faucet, and the water tends to splash outside the sink, even though I have a deep, undermounted sink. I wouldn't order it again. March 27, 2013
Love love love Did I mention that I love this faucet!! Got it for my kitchen remodel, and I love the touch on/off when cooking or cleaning. I feel like it is saving water as well. It has great pressure, in fact I love the larger spray for washing vegetables, but we don't leave it on that because it does tend to spray outside the sink. The center flow is perfect for washing hands or filling up pots. I love the pull out spray as well for rinsing down the sink and washing produce. I highly recommend August 14, 2013
Love this faucet! Looks beautiful (got the venetian bronze), good quality, works well! The touch feature was not hard to "adapt to" as many people suggested. All 4 in our family love it and 7 year old can now turn on the kitchen sink without a step-stool. So great for busy kitchen workers with constant messy hands! High arch is great for filling big pots or washing lots of big platters/pots/pans after entertaining. Swivel, pull out nozzle and switch to spray stream all work great. February 2, 2014
Great Faucet This looks nice and works very well. When my hands are dirty I love that I can tap it and it turns on and off. This is a great feature. Plus it does not take a lot of room on my counter or above the sink. December 3, 2013

how long do the batteries last and what type was used

Can only batteries be used or do you have a transformer that can also do the job?
Also, about how long is battery life using NiMh rechargeable, lithium, alkaline if never using the touch capability (i.e., longest life) and alternatively the average life for normal use?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Our touch faucets are recommended to be used with alkaline batteries for the longest life. They will usually last 1-2 years depending on the use of the faucet. There is not a way to hardwire the faucet into a transformer.

Installation restrictions

We want to purchase a Delta Touch20 Technology kitchen faucet. We like the Cassidy, Trinsic or Pilar style. Our problem is the back splash is 2-1/8" from the vertical centerline of the faucet to the back splash. The back splash height is 6". The 2-1/2" base diameter of the faucet would not be an issue. My problem is all the technical drawings for these faucets state the minimum faucet centerline to back splash dimension is 2-1/2". Unless the faucet handles go backwards beyond vertical, I do not see why I could not install this faucet. Any thoughts.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 9197T-DST does need 2 1/2 inches clearance to the backsplash because the handle does go beyond the vertical point. If you only have 2 1/8 inches, then your handle will hit the backsplash.

Answer: 
Good question, Mat, but you should be in luck!

Although the installation might be marginally more difficult under the sink from the reduced clearance, it should work fine. This model features the Euro-Motion handle which only rotates forward to eliminate backsplash interference.

My backsplash is too close. What can be done?

Can the Cassidy faucet cartridge and handle be installed at an angle increasing the forward motion while reducing the required clearance to the backsplash? If not, can the entire faucet be rotated in the mounting hole to move the handle forward?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 9197T-DST has to have a minimum clearance to the backsplash of 2 1/2 inches. If you using a single hole mount, you can rotate the faucet so that the handle is in the front to avoid the handle hitting the backsplash. However, your hot and cold will then be side to side instead of back to front.

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 9197T-DST started shipping in late September but that does not mean a store will keep them in stock. You should be able to go into your local wholesaler or retailer, and they will order it for you.

Yes. I would have given you a specific supplier and address if I knew your location, but you may also easily find the Cassidy available online at Amazon, FaucetDirect.com and others. Go to the 'Where to Buy' tab at Delta Faucet for many other authorized suppliers
