Rated 3 out of 5 by from RUSTED OUT WITHIN A YEAR WE LOVED THIS FAUCET, BUT WITHIN A YEAR, THE MAGNET IN TEH NECK RUSTED OUT SO THAT THE SPRAYER NO LONGER GOES ALL THE WAY UP.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bought it 8/25/18. Unfortunately my GC could not install it until 11/2/18. Found the swivel to be loose and the direction of the spray head was not perpendicular to the sink and sprayed out on the floor. Since we are outside the 60 day window I am at significant loss. I have used fauce direct for other products, but this one did not work out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's plastic You should be aware that the faucet is made of plastic and not metal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great! We have had it for a month and really like it. But the hose is a bit flimsy for a $400 faucet and water pressure and volume could definately be improved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I have been very happy with the faucet and the soap dispenser. And we really like the pull down feature and the spray which allows us to spray the entire sink.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delta 9197 Faucet It is a bit larger than we thought reaching past the center drain. Beautiful faucet tho!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install Works well, you will need normal water pressure to get the water blast feature to work correctly though. We are on a well and the water shield around the blast stream just splashes everywhere instead of preventing it.

i like the style of this product, but some reviews suggest that its too big for a 24" wide sink. Is there a smaller similar product?

Asked by: Ronnie
Hi Ronnie, Thank you for your question. We do have a smaller Bar/Prep version of this faucet available, the 9997-DST. http://www.deltafaucet.com/kitchen/details/9997-dst.html Best regards, Jon

Can someone tell me the vertical distance (space) between the valve and the sink / escutcheon?

Our dishwasher air gap is mounted just a few inches from the hole for the faucet. It's been heck trying to find a faucet that has a right-side control lever that doesn't interfere. This model appear to have a higher mounted control lever but I can't find the measurement in the specifications.
Asked by: Reverberocket
Hi Reverberocket, Thank you for your question. The measurement from the deck to the bottom of the handle assembly/valve on the model 9197-AR-DST is approximately 4-1/2". Thanks, Dave

Which finish looks better with a stainless sink - Arctic Stainless or Polished Nickel?

I am having a difficult time being able to decide based on the online images which of these finishes will look better with a stainless sink. Any advice?
Asked by: Julie
Dear Julie, Thank you for your question. The Arctic Stainless finish will match a stainless sink better than the Polished Nickel finish. Please click the link below to see a color sample side by side. https://www.deltafaucet.com/service-parts/faq/faq-tablist-area/tabularlist/other/faq-item-14#answer-bcae231e-bdf4-49d9-aeac-b8f58ea59629 https://www.deltafaucet.com/design-innovation/inspiredliving/finish-vs-finish Best regards, Tanya

What type of metal is used and where?

I have searched all the Q&A answers, and although a couple of people asked what the faucet is made of, the answers given are not specific enough. Exactly what type of metal is used- Brass? Zinc? Zamak? What parts are metal and what parts are plastic? Your website conveniently (actually inconveniently) leaves out all details regarding material which is not a good sign for anyone looking for a quality faucet.
Asked by: DG
Hi DG, Thank you for your question. The faucet body, spout, and handle are metal. Unfortunately, we do not have a complete breakdown of the materials used. In general, metal parts are usually brass (hub, handle, body, tube, fittings), zinc (escutcheon, hub, handle), or stainless steel (set screw, undercover plate). Best regards, Jon

2 Questions on Operation

1. Which way do you move the side-mounted lever handle to turn the water ON - Up or Down; Front or Back? 2. Does the pull down spray wand have a water shut-off button? That is, can you shut the water flow completely OFF from the pull down?
Asked by: GrumpyGeezer
To turn the faucet on, you move the handle out. Front and back are the temperature control. Back being hotter, cold is forward. There is not a shut-off on the pulldown spray attachment, just a rocker switch for spray and regular flow.

Can a Delta Cassidy 9197-AR-DST sink faucet be installed in a sink with three holes and how are the extra two holes dealt with.  Also, does this faucet match with the DeltaRP71543 Soap/Lotion Dispenser that can be used to repurpose the current spray hole?

Asked by: Gene
Hello Gene, Thank you for your inquiry! The Delta Cassidy Pull-Down Kitchen 9197-AR-DST faucet is a 1 or 3-hole 8" installation. Ordering RP71545AR the optional escutcheon plate would cover all three holes on the sink. You would order RP71543AR for the optional coordinating soap dispenser . https://www.deltafaucet.com/kitchen/product/RP71543AR https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP71545AR Best regards, Tanya

Will soap dispenser model RP1002AR coordinate with the Cassidy Single handle pulldown faucet?

Asked by: Foggy
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP1002AR will work with the Cassidy faucet. However, we recommend Delta Faucet model # RP71543AR to coordinate with that faucet. It is still up to the customer's preference to pick one.
