What are the major distinctions between 4197 RB DST and 4353 RB DST?
Appearance wise they are identical but with a $175.00 difference.
Hi Rich, Thank you for your question. The main difference is in the styling of the faucet. Both faucets are single handle pullouts in the venetian bronze finish . The Cassidy model 4197-RB-DST has an integrated handle with the Euro motion cartridge and more intricate design. The Linden model 5353-RB-DST has more of a transitional design. The list price difference between the 2 models is approximately $35.

When Setting up the soap dispenser can longer tubing be used and put directly into a bottle of soap on the cabinet floor?
Instead of using the small plastic bottle that came with the soap dispenser, can you add a longer piece of tubing and extend it into a larger soap container that you can set on your cabinet floor? It would be much easier to get to when it needs replace.
Thank you for your question. Delta does not make any longer pumps for our soap dispensers. Also, unfortunately we do not recommend adding extensions to the plastic pump as we can not guarantee it would adapt or work.

I am considering purchasing this faucet, but have concern with how easy it is to pull out and replace the wand.
I tried it at a friend's home, and it was very difficult to pull out. Could this be an installation issue? Is there somewhere near Gainesville GA that has the faucet in their showroom to try it?
Hi Gainesville Homeowner, Thank you for your question!
The pull out spray wand should not be difficult to remove and place back into the spout. Below is a link to the " where to buy" option in the website which will provide information on suppliers that may stock the product:

Can I have a soap dispenser with this faucet?
Hi Kitty, Thank you for your question. The model 4197-DST can be installed as a 1 or 3 hole installation. As long as you have space available you can add a soap/lotion dispenser to this faucet. The RP71543 coordinates with the Cassidy collection but you can choose which ever style you like to go with the faucet.

Can the lever be positioned in the front?
Hi Spoobs, Thank you for your question. The lever on the model 4197-RB-DST cannot be positioned on the front of the faucet. The spout only travels 120 degrees and would not reach the majority of a sink or face completely forward.

I'm very interested in your model # 4197 PN-DST in Polished nickel. According to the little youtube video on this page, this model comes in 4 colors and the polished nickel is NOT one of them. So is the video correct, or can I order it in Polished Nickel?
Thank you for your question. The Delta 4197-PN-DST faucet in the Polished Nickel finish is available for purchase.

I want to purchase Cassidy faucet # 4197-DST for a vintage kitchen with shallow depth counters. Why do I need 2 1/2" distance from the backsplash?
I would have just 1 3/4" to backsplash, and there is also a windowsill nearby, which makes the upper space for faucet even tighter.
I really want this faucet.... It doesn't look like it would need that much, but I don't want to do an order I can't return.
Please tell me why.
Also wondering why the sprayer is is plastic not metal? Seems odd.
Thank you for your help.
Dear Crazy Jane,
Thank you for your question. The Delta Cassidy Kitchen Pull-Out 4197-DST has a recommended backsplash clearance of 2 1/2" because of the spout (with the decorative finial on the back) swivel of 120 degrees. The wand assembly is made of non metallic for safety purposes.

I am having a difficult time finding anything on this faucet that acts as if its a magnet to doc the wand pull out. Has this been eliminated by the this type pull out? I literally have to shove the wand back in to seat it
Thank you for your question. The 4197-DST does not have MagnaTite® Docking. The information indicating that this faucet does have MagnaTite® Docking on the website is incorrect and we are working on getting this error fixed. I do apologize for the confusion.

How does the pull out arm work? Do you just pull it out and it fits back in place?
I just had this faucet installed with our new granite counter tops. I love the look, but, there doesn't seem to be a lot of information in the owner's manual/installation guide.
Hi Trezy, Thank you for your question. The pull out wand does simply pull out for use. You will then slide the wand back into the spout when finished. The weight under the counter will help with the hose when returning the wand to the spout. The button on the wand will allow you to toggle back and forth between stream and spray modes.

This may sound like a silly question, but this was installed by a contractor for me, and I am wondering if he got the cold and hot backward. When the handle is vertical should the water be hot or cold?
Thank you for your question! The temperature should be cold in the vertical position and hot when it is forward. If the temperature is reversed, you can correct this by swapping the connection of the supply lines.
Best regards, Jon

Does Model 4197-RB-DST and 9197T-RB-DSTcome with the RP71545RB Escutcheon need for a 3-hole 8" center install?
Don't know about 9197T-RB-DST, but 4197-RB-DST does not come with escutcheon plate. And this would be the only negative thing i would have to say is that it is pricey. around $65

Is this faucet going to be available with the touch2O technology?

Does this faucet have MagnaTite docking? Is the faucet made entirely out of metal?
I'm wondering how this faucet docks after pulling out the sprayer and putting it back in. How well does it stay in place, does it have MagnaTite docking? Also I'm wondering what material the faucet is made from? I am looking for a faucet with very shiny chrome and am having a hard time telling how shiny the chrome finish is in the picture. When I compare it to other brands, their pictures look more shiny.
Thank you for your questions! It does not have MagnaTite docking, but does have tabs on the wand that slide onto slots in the hub to keep the wand stable when it is docked. The wand assembly is non-metallic, but the spout body and handle are metal. Our Chrome finish has a bright, shiny polish.

Please explain how the handle operates - it looks like it rotates away from the faucet to turn it on and off. But how is the temperature regulated? If the handle needs to rotate back towards the backsplash, how much clearance does it need. Thanks!

Does the Cassidy single handle faucet have a spout that swivels??
Can you swivel the spout from side to side to access a divided sink? Which is "browner" - oil-rubbed bronze or Tuscan bronze?
Thank you for your question! This faucet does swivel from sink to sink. We have two rubbed bronze finishes, Venetian Bronze, and Oil Rubbed Bronze. Venetian Bronze is dark brown with bronze markings throughout the finish. Oil Rubbed Bronze has more contrast. It is very dark brown (almost black) with bronze highlights only along the edges.
