Touch it on. Touch it off. Whether you have two full hands or 10 messy fingers, Delta® Touch2O® Technology helps keep your faucet clean, even when your hands aren’t. A simple touch anywhere on the spout or handle with your wrist or forearm activates the flow of water at the temperature where your handle is set. The Delta TempSense™ LED light changes color to alert you to the water’s temperature and eliminate any possible surprises or discomfort. Delta® MagnaTite® Docking uses a powerful integrated magnet to pull your faucet spray wand precisely into place and hold it there so it stays docked when not in use. Delta® ShieldSpray® Technology cleans with laser-like precision while containing mess and splatter. A concentrated jet powers away stubborn messes while an innovative shield of water contains splatter and clears off the mess, so you can spend less time soaking, scrubbing and shirt swapping. Delta® faucets with DIAMOND™ Seal Technology perform like new for life with a patented design which reduces leak points, is less hassle to install and lasts twice as long as the industry standard*.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked great for a month before it died. I bought this model because of its looks and Touch technology. It was installed exactly one month ago. The touch technology started acting finicky when the spout end of the faucet stopped responding to touch. This base was responding for a short time then stopped as well. The faucet won't even respond to when the lever is pulled out, I can't get water at my kitchen sink! I troubleshooter by replacing the batteries and making sure all wires were securely connected. Nothing worked. I don't recommend this faucet. Stick to the basics until the technology is reliable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Water Flow Problems This worked great for a few months then we had a problem with the touch on/off. Now after a couple of years the water flow dramatically stopped/slowed to a trickle. Cleaning the nozzle as recommended did not help. Cannot seem to figure out why this is happening. I suspect it is the electronics but have no way to confirm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from After 5 years it's not working well I loved it for the first 4 years and now I regret the purchase. It's not working well. It's leaking so you have to completely shut it off which means you definitely can't use the touch feature. However, when you turn it on the water doesn't come on and the touch feature is spotty so it takes about 30 seconds to a minute of hitting it all over to finally get it to come on. The auto shut off feature used to work and now that doesn't. Bottom line, I wouldn't recommend buying this for longevity!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty but not worth the money I bought this faucet several months ago and should have returned it before now! It looks very nice and the touch feature works well. I had it professionally installed for $220. The water flow is VERY slow and splashes all over my clothes, my sink and granite. Not sure how some thing with no pressure can splash so much. I can not wash dishes if I’m dressed to leave the house. I love the temperature light but the pressure is so slow it takes forever to get hot water. Delta sent me replacement parts for the slow flow but it did not help.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible, not even 1 year old Have had to replace batteries twice in less than 1 year of purchase. Not worth the $$, faucet will not work at all without batteries. Worst purchase of my remodel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks so nice and great features! Easy to install, great features, pricing was fair depends on where you get it from. Did have to order the plate separate from Amazon because I was installing in a existing three hole counter. I love the temperature lighting and the new splash less clean for the stuck on food.

hot vs cold set up

for the cassidy single handle kithcen faucet, is the water supposed to be set up to be hot when handle pulled down / toward you or cold when pulled down / toward you.
Asked by: JP
Hi JP, Thank you for your question. When the handle on the model 9197T-AR-DST is pulled down toward you the water temperature should get hotter. Thanks, Dave

Can this faucet be hard wired with a transformer?

Asked by: ldthom
Technical specification documentation says that this faucet can be wired with a transformer (rp73954). However, none of the documentation says how to hook it in.

How do you control water pressure?

Asked by: Lightnin
Hi Lightnin, Thank you for your question. The water volume on the model 9197T-AR-DST is controlled by pulling the handle motion to the right with closer to vertical being low flow and increasing as the handle moves to the right. Thanks, Dave

Can I bypass the automatic drip shut off so that I can leave a drip going during below zero temps outside? This would prevent my pipes from freezing.

Asked by: Karen
Hi Karen, Thank you for your question. If you remove the cap from the battery box while the water is running, the faucet will be in manual mode. This will prevent the 4 minute automatic shut-off. Best regards, Jon

how long do the batteries last and what type was used

Can only batteries be used or do you have a transformer that can also do the job? Also, about how long is battery life using NiMh rechargeable, lithium, alkaline if never using the touch capability (i.e., longest life) and alternatively the average life for normal use?
Asked by: gar
Thank you for your question. Our touch faucets are recommended to be used with alkaline batteries for the longest life. They will usually last 1-2 years depending on the use of the faucet. There is not a way to hardwire the faucet into a transformer.
