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 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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought on a whim!!! Not sorry we did. Love the maganitized parking for the head. Just sorry we didn't register all the other delta faucets we have. This is the latest, but we figured that the plumber that sold us the others, registered them...This new one is the best, so far... Bill

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faucet looks and works great. Replaced existing faucet as part of a kitchen upgrade with Cassidy model. Installation was done by a plumber since sink and drain piping were also replaced. Faucet hook up was fast and easy. Main reason for choosing this faucet was the magnetic holder on spray head instead of another manufacturers weight system to return the spray head to the docked position. Faucet works great, looks great and I am completely satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful design, finish & performance This went into our kitchen remodel. I'm very happy with the look and usability. The faucet looks very high end.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive Faucet I had searched for a modern and updated look to the faucet in our large kitchen, often feeling everything looked the same. Once I found The Cassidy by Delta I knew I had the look I wanted. Installation was easy for the plumber, thank goodness. Now the problem that has persisted is the UP direction of the handle is not allowing for the hot water. Cold water direction is just fine as well as the lukewarm, but no HOT. There is no obvious adjustment to be made either. Most unfortunate dilemma. The plumber came out again and shook his head perplexed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Cassidy Line I have finally replaced every faucet in three bathrooms, a utility room sink and kitchen with the Cassidy single lever faucets. Two in the Venetian oil rubbed bronze and three in the stainless steel finish. I like the function of the single lever. My husband installed all five faucets without any problems. The bathroom faucets are a forward (cold) and backward (hot) motion. The kitchen faucet is a straight up outward movement for cold and a forward outward movement for hot with varying temps in between. The pull down spray nozzle is a must if you're wanting a spay nozzle. The attached magnate will not forcefully pull the nozzle back in place but serves as a gentle guide in replacing it back in the faucet. The stainless steel finish is perfect for those who want a brushed appearance vs a polished finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Been using the faucet for a few weeks and like the functionality. Wish the flow/spray button was not black, it would have been nice to have it better match the chrome finish. I did select this faucet because the black button was concealed behind the pull down faucet sprayer and wasn't as visible. Also like the magnet snap and solid feel and fit of all the moving parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful & All In One! We purchased this over a month ago to install in our new house and I can't wait to see it installed soon! We bought the champagne bronze color to lend a bit more warmth to our kitchen and to match the brass hardware we chose and they look beautiful side by side!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty much love this faucet! We actually purchased this faucet 4 years ago during a kitchen remodel. We love the touch technology! I can't say enough good things about it! Recently, however, I had a problem when something on the sprayer broke. I called Delta and (the faucet is covered by their 5 year warranty) they immediately sent me replacement parts. I'm a 67 year old woman with no plumbing experience, so I was worried if I could make the repair. While the directions that came with the parts could have been clearer, I was able to replace the hose and faucet head. My only concern is that the replacement hose did not seem to be the same quality material as the original hose, but I could be mistaken. Also, an original part that was metal was plastic on the replacement part. Again, maybe that is of no consequence, just an observation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faucet leaks This faucet was purchased when our kitchen was remodeled just over a year ago. Two months ago I noticed that the faucet was leaking. Our plumber took the faucet apart and replaced the inner cartridge/valve which had a crack in it. It cost us just under $100 for the part and labor. Last night I looked under the sink and found that the faucet is leaking again! I'm waiting to hear back from the plumber to see if he recommends replacing the part again or just purchasing a new faucet. We are family of 5 and not being able to use your new kitchen sink/faucet is a huge inconvenience. I would not recommend this faucet.
Date published: 2017-05-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my new faucet Delta makes an excellent product. I love my knew faucet. On a visual aspect it definitely makes a statement in my kitchen; the quality of the finish is outstanding. The pull down spray with the new magnet docking makes it so pleasant to use with no struggle to return it in place. This was a replacement for an older faucet the installation was quick and simple. Over all I highly recommend this faucet, you will enjoy it.
Date published: 2017-04-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just as described. Strudy, well made and a terrific price! Tends to drip when you switch between the sprayer and normal tap mode, but not a big deal. The pull down should be made of the same material as tap - it's plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice faucets. Quality and vision. We ordered some special Delta faucets for our new house. They are good looking, quality faucets. We had a small problem with one after two years and Delta stepped right up and fixed the problem for us with zero hassle. Regardless of what they may cost, these faucets are worth every cent we paid for them. They are beautiful, well made and simple for repairs if needed. Delta will be our Faucet company from now on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Missing eccuthcen! I feel this is on Delta and Home Depot. I order this faucet from Home Depot and it came without the three hole adapter. Part #RP71545. They say it comes with the faucet. Why would they ship it or box it without adaptor? The faucet is basically junk without it, I mean how many one hole sinks are there??? On top of that Home Depot says they don't even carry the part. 50 minutes plus in a chat with them to find that out. Hopefully a supervisor contacts me. Not happy with Delta or Home Depot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Still haven't been able to have this faucet installed since the kit did not include a 3-hole plate that is needed. Waiting on my plumber to get me one. For the price I paid this should have included

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

One of the reviews mentioned a battery...does this faucet have a battery and what is it for? thanks.

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
