Which way for hot and cold?
We had our new Cassidy installed and the Hot is on when we pull the lever forward/down towards us and the Cold is on when the lever is pushed straight back/straight up. This feels backwards to us. All other faucets we have ever had, including other Delta ones, have the cold being forward and hot being back. Please help, is this correct or was it installed incorrectly?
Thank you for your question! The faucet is designed to dispense cold water when the handle is in the upright position, and hot when it is forward.

What metal is the body of the faucet made of?
also like to know if this faucet has a ceramic disk cartridge or or a compression valve?
Thank you for your question. The cartridge assembly in the Delta Cassidy kitchen 4297-DST is Diamond ceramic. Delta faucets use either metal and plastic combination or a proprietary mixture of components so that the product has a high quality, while maintaining safety control with the various temperatures of water that go through the product.
Delta Faucet Company takes extreme pride in the quality of its products, and strives daily to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers.

move water lever to front
can the water lever be located on the front of this faucet during installation. with our backslpash we can not have the lever on the side because there is not enough room for it to tilt back all the way.
Thank you for your question. Please note that the handle tilts away from the faucet to turn on and will only rotate forward from the upright position (up for cold water, forward for hot).
Due to the way the handle operates, we only recommend installing the faucet with the handle on the right side.

Does the cassidy 4297 DST single handle faucet with spray come with an escheleon?
My present Delta Kitchen faucet has a chrome plate ( guess it's called an escheleon?# that it sits on. Can I get this product with that? I fear if my plate is removed, that it may not be attractive underneath .
Does the Cassidy single handle faucet with spray come with the plate #escheleon?) If not, what would you suggest? I will have a plumber do the install. Thank you
Thank you for your question! Unfortunately, this faucet does not come with an escutcheon in the box. However, you can purchase the RP71545 as an accessorry. That is the escutcheon for this faucet. Bear in mind, that will change this faucet from a 2 hole install to a 4 hole install.

Can I put a portable dishwasher on 4297-AR-DST (Cassidy)
If I can get an adapter, which part should I order?
Hi Ona, Thank you for your question. The cache aerator used on the model 4297-AR-DST has 13/16" threads. Unfortunately we do not offer an adapter that will convert this faucet for use with a portable dishwasher.

Does Part RP51505 Fit on this product
I have been trying to see if the aerator adaptor rp51505 will fit on this product. I have both parts and they do not seem to fit together. If not what size adaptor do I need?
Thank you for your question. The thread pattern on RP51505 is different than the threads on the cache aerator that comes with the the Cassidy kitchen faucet. No other adapter for the cache aerator is available.

installation of Cassidy faucet with spray
Can this faucet, with the sprayer, be installed, with a soap dispenser, on a 3-hole sink?
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 4297-DST is a 2-hole installation but you if have 3 holes, you can add a soap dispenser for your third hole. We recommend Delta Faucet model # RP37039 but any soap dispenser will work.

Can this faucet be installed without the spray?
I have a client interested in this faucet but they do not want a spray, they drain their house for the winter months and are concerned on the spray house/handle draining properly.
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 4297-AR-DST can be used without the sprayer. There is a sprayer cap that is included in the box to cap off the hose.
