Hot/Cold lever seems backward
We just built our new home and had this faucet installed. I love the classy look and cross handles we chose; however the lever that controls the hot and cold seems backwards to me. When it is lying down toward me, I can see the letter "C". I would assume this means "Cold" but when I turn it on in that position the water is hot. Vice versa the other way. My husband checked the water lines and they are connected blue to cold and red to hot so that is not the issue. Is this just how the lever is designed?
Thank you for your question. Rotating the handle backwards toward the C will provide cold water. Rotating it forward toward the H will increase the temperature.

Is there a larger size escutcheon available for this model?
I am mounting this faucet on a vintage cast sink with previously a 3 hole mount faucet. The area has some discoloration I am trying to cover. I purchased a RP714545 escutcheon but it is a little short for the coverage area I need. Is there a larger one that is compatible?
Hi tcall61, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we do not offer an larger escutcheon for the model 4197-DST faucet other than the RP71545.

Would you call this faucet a brushed chrome or brushed nickle
I am trying to match pendant lights with the faucet. All lights are either brushed chrome or brushed nickle. The faucet is called stainless.
Thank you for your question. This finish is called Arctic Stainless. It is neither a 'Brushed Nickel' or a 'Brushed Chrome' finish. It is a matte finish with a tint of blue. Arctic Stainless features cooler metallic tones.

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.
