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.

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

How to tight the spout? The spout is loose.

Asked by: home12
Thank you for your question, home12! If only the spout feels loose then you may need a new spout retainer, part number RP60923 which can be obtained by contacting the warranty center directly. If the entire faucet is moving, the mounting bracket below the counter will need to be tightened. Please let us know if you have any questions or need assistance. https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP60923 Best regards, Edward
