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.

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 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t let the commercials fool you.. This faucet is NOT what you think it is. It’s temperamental to the touch and only works when certain sections of it are touched. It eats batteries like pac-man eats dots. You might be in the middle of washing something off and it suddenly stops. We would give it less than 1 star if possible. The company that did our kitchen has stopped selling it they’ve had so many complaints. What a rip off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looks and great features I've had this for 3 weeks now. I love the precision feel of the handle. I can set the exact temperature needed unlike the kind that work like a joystick. The pull down head stays put with a strong magnet then releases with a light quarter turn in either direction. No need to yank on it like many other brands. The finish cleans up with soap and water. Only thing I would change would be the pex hot and cold lines for braided stainless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good enough Slightly regretting not getting the touchless feature, but other than that it looks good and functions well. Glad I got this model and not one of the taller ones, because even with this we experience splashback on the surrounding countertop. Advice: get an extra weight for the pull down head. As is it comes with one, but it’s not heavy enough for it too snap back in place on its own, it requires coaxing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delta pull-down faucet- great product My Franke faucet broke after 4 years; it had plastic parts. This is a great faucet. It's heavy duty and it looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fashionable and functional I bought this a couple of months ago and it was installed last month as part of a kitchen renovation that included a new sink and counters. So far, I love it. It's fashionable but also very useful for cleaning a variety of items. That's especially useful since I still hand wash a number of things.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great, functions poorly. This unit is attractive and easy to install. Unfortunately, it seems to have been set at the factory to deliver a very limited flow of hot water, a feature that was very much unappreciated. I attempted to dismantle the thing in order to adjust the mixing valve and obtain hot water and discovered that it apparently cannot be disassembled or adjusted without special tools. It also was obvious that the average homeowner cannot repair or rebuild this faucet. In my opinion, purchase of this faucet was a very bad mistake, as I apparently will never be able to make it operate satisfactorily, and when it starts leaking I will have no option but to replace it. Take my advice and buy something much cheaper but more serviceable. JL, Springfield, Illinois

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A truely exceptional faucet in all respects We remodeled our kitchen and included a new faucet and under mount sink. the faucet is truly a work of art. it looks sleek, operates like a dream with smooth and yet crisp actions. The spray works very well with strong flow and ease of operation. we also love the way the spray head retracts into the arm. All in all a very good selection and we would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a quality faucet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy installation Well built product and easy to install. My only suggestion is to have the handle on the left side of the faucet. That would make it easier to use.
Date published: 2017-09-23
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Issues with the magnetic head! The magnetic head need lots of encouragement to reattach. The next issue is the arch of the faucet neck, it protrudes at an odd angle and causes the water to flow past where you would want it to.

Can the on/off handle on the Cassidy model be put in front, rather than on either side?

I prefer to have my hot/cold selection be left and right, instead of front and back. Is there any reason why this could not be done?
Asked by: Virginia
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 9197-CZ-DST can be turned so that the handle is in the front ranther than on the side. The whole body of the faucet will need to be turned when it is installed.

We just finished building our new home and have this faucet installed and it had great pressure for a week and then all of a sudden it lost about half of its pressure.  All the other faucets in the house are fine just this one has pressure issues now.

Asked by: tgcockre
Thank you for your question, tgcockre! Debris can occasionally get inside a faucets valve, especially during a new construction or when first installed. We recommend removing the wand assembly from the hose first to check for buildup. Run the water on a full mixed position while pointing the hose into the sink for about a full minute to help alleviate any further sediment. If the lowflow persists, please contact us directly and we would be happy to help further. Best regards, Edward

We recently got this faucet and when you switch the button from spray to stream and vice verse it still drips or sprays a little of the opposite option. If I go and push the button harder it will fix the problem. I’m concerned that eventually it won’t. 

Asked by: Annette
Hi, Annette! Thank you for your question. If the sprayer assembly is experiencing cross flow, water coming out of both spray and stream on the sprayer of the 9197-DST, we recommend to soak the sprayer in a solution of 50% white vinegar and 50% water solution for an hour or even overnight. If this does not solve the issue, we recommend to replace the sprayer assembly, RP72680. If you should need assistance with a replacement, please contact our Delta Customer Service line at (800)345-3358. We are available Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm, CST and Saturday, 8am-5pm, CST. You may also email at customerservice@deltafaucet.com. Best Regards, Rosanna

How do I disassemble to clean the sprayer? It seems to have hard water clog, the spray is all over the place and the pressure is low.

Asked by: Jill
Hi, Jill! Thank you for your question. The sprayer can be unscrewed off of the hose. You can soak the whole sprayer in a solution of 50% white vinegar and 50% water solution. You can soak from an hour or even overnight to clean. Best Regards, Rosanna

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?

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

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?
