Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! I bought this faucet recently for my kitchen remodel. I had great success with a previous Delta purchase so I decided to stay with the same brand. I love the Spray Shield feature in this faucet! It does what it says about not splashing and removes food off the dishes completely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, elegant, and sturdy I searched for ever for a faucet and am so happy I ordered this one. My pull-out Pfister from a big box store started leaking out the top after two years and we couldn't get the handle to come off. I wanted to upgrade to a pull-down that wasn't so tall it interfered with the cabinets above. The Cassidy is a high arch and was perfect. It swivels completely around in a solid fashion with ease, but yet does not wobble at all in the base. I like that the handle is elevated a bit from the counter. I have it mounted to the right and I don't seem to be dripping water down it all the time. The cartridge feels fairly solid and I hope will last for years to come. I was reluctant to get the basic chrome color at first but it looks really sharp and I think it was the right choice. The metal feels really solid and the magnetic nozzle snaps firmly back into place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Low pressure I purchased this model about a month ago and it has very low pressure.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Disappointing This faucet is nice looking on the outside but according to our plumber, poorly constructed in the inside. It is made with cheap parts that can easily break.This is not what I was expecting for an almost $500 faucet. I'm very sorry that we chose this faucet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NICE So far I've been happy with this faucet. I do suggest the instructions could be more user friendly and their was a yellow key tool in the box that the instructions never addressed, So I have no idea what it was for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from low water pressure We moved into a new home that had the faucet (brand new). The water pressure seemed fine when we first moved into the home, then as time went on the water pressure became extremely low.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was extremely disappointed with the various spray features of the Cassidy with Spray Shield. The stream is extremely narrow, the spray is almost useless because there is a large gap in the middle since the spray only comes out either side, and I don’t really see the point of the Spray Shield. After paying an exorbitant amount for the faucet and to have it installed, I am going to have to pay yet again to replace the spray head with one that does not have spray shield.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product I had my kitchen remodeled about a year ago. The faucet looks like the day it was installed. It works flawlessly. It does what it is supposed to do. We have hard water but it doesn't have any white residue and cleans up easily. I have a 30 inch apron sink and can clean every bit of it simply. There is so much available on line but my plumber cautioned me that parts may not be available and quality varies widely. With Delta you know what you are getting. A quality product and a company that stands by their products. I also have Delta in my bathroom as well. Two different remodelers usa and recommend Delta. This style worked out perfectly for me. I couldn't be more pleased.

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.
