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.

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.

Shank length

I need a faucet that has a shank length that will go through a 1 1/4 " thick granite. What is the shank length on this faucet?

Does it come in brushed nickel?

Asked by: Wendy
Thank you for your question, Wendy! Model 9197-DST is currently offered in Chrome, Venetian Bronze, Champagne Bronze, Polished Nickel. It is also available in Arctic Stainless which does have brush strokes and matches many Brushed Nickel and Stainless finishes. Below is a link to similar models with the same features that are offered in our Stainless Steel or SpotShield Stainless finishes which is a close match to Brushed Nickel. https://www.deltafaucet.com/product-comparison?modelNumber=9178T-SP-DST&modelNumber=19934TZ-SPSD-DST&modelNumber=9192T-SSSD-DST Best regards, Edward

How do I fix very low water flow -- NOT at the spray nozzle?

My 9197 AR DST faucet has *very* low flow, possibly due to debris in the line from recent plumbing work. The problem is *past* the supply line shutoff valves but *before* the spray head/nozzle. How can I disassemble the line from the mixing valve to the output line connector and clean it out? I have disassembled the mixing valve and found no problems. It's possible I reassembled the mixing valve incorrectly, but I doubt it, as it appears that it can only be assembled one way.
Asked by: theophys
Hi, theophys! Thank you for your question. The hose assembly for your 9197-AR-DST can be removed by unclipping the blue clip from the connection. Once the blue clip is taken off, you can pull the hose down firmly until it is completely off of the valve end. Best Regards, Rosanna

Does this faucet revert automatically to stream mode from spray mode when you shut the water off?

Asked by: Linda
Hi Linda, Thank you for your question. The spray modes on the model 9197-DST work on a toggle type switch. You will move the switch between the stream and spray modes. When you turn the water off it will remain in whatever mode you were using. The faucet does not switch back to the stream mode automatically. Thanks, Dave

Delta Kitchen Faucet 9197-DST was just installed today and one of the sprays doesn't seem to work correctly. One soft spray and the other comes out balloon like. The plumber doesn't think anything is wrong but it looks strange. Is there an adjustment?

Asked by: Becky
Thank you for your question, Becky! The "balloon spray" you are noticing is our new ShieldSpray technology which allows for a protective bubble of water that helps reduce splashing while also providing a laser-like precision jet to quickly and easily remove stubborn messes.

I recently purchased this faucet and the description states there is a "temporary water flow increase" possibility with this faucet. Is this true?

Since our psi is less than 60 because we are on a private water supply where the psi is generally not set as high as municipal sources, the water flow for this faucet is quite weak. A temporary water flow increase to fill large pots is important. Will be disappointed/frustrated if this is not possible.
Asked by: MiaCee
Dear MiaCee, Thank you for you inquiry! The Delta Cassidy Pull-Down Kitchen 9197-DST faucet is not designed with a "temporary water flow increase" feature. The wand assembly is a Touch-Clean 2-function wand that operates in stream or spray mode. https://media.deltafaucet.com/SpecSheet/DSP-K-9197-DST%20Rev%20C.pdf Best regards, Tanya

We have had an Delta faucet model 9197 professionally installed - the weight for the spray nozzle does not pull the nozzle back into the faucet when you are done spraying - you have to manually push it back into the faucet.

Asked by: Thomas
Hi, Thomas. Thank you for your inquiry. The Delta 9197-DST faucet sprayer will need manual assistance by the user to dock into the spout assembly. Once the sprayer assembly is docked, the weight as well as the magnet in the spout, keeps the sprayer docked into the spout assembly. Best Regards, Rosanna

How do you tighten the on/off handle?

Asked by: clarkluikart
This image is the RP72684 "button" that you have to remove to tighten the set screw. I got mine off with an awl, the head end of a straight pin might work too. If your sink is next to a wall, you can't see this button without a mirror or sticking your head in the sink. After tightening the set screw (with a dab of blue Lock-tite), I can't think of any reason to put this back on.

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.

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.
