Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PaulN Delta Cassidy Touch (Chrome model # 9997T-DST)
Delta’s Cassidy Touch faucet line comes in a few different sizes, colors and can be touch sensitive or not – so make sure you get the right model. Installation was simple since I have already installed a few faucets before. Connect the water lines through the supplied check valves. Then run the main water line (extension hose) through the computer module and attach the battery pack. Don’t forget to attach the touch sensor cable to the faucet frame below the counter and plug it into the computer module. Instructions were clear and simple.
This model (# 9997T-DST) did not come with a cover (escutcheon) plate. I had to get one separately from Delta (part # RP71545AR). The cover plate is also of very high quality and matched the style and chrome color of the faucet. So if you’re installing this on a single-hole sink then you’re fine, otherwise for the three-hole option get the cover plate. Can be installed on the top or with an under-mount sink – all hardware was in the box.
This is a very classy looking faucet! The design is great, the materials feel of high quality and the 5-year warranty is also nice. The touch control works well and senses everywhere but the spout. The included 6AA batteries are rated to last 2 years of average use. Simply touch the body of the faucet or the handle to start or stop the water flow. The water flow rate and temperature are still controlled manually by the handle. But once set, they will remain the same until adjusted. There is a small LED light on the bottom of the faucet that changes colors from Blue (cold), to Pink (warm), to Red (hot) depending on the temperature of the water flowing through. The light is off when the water is off. The braided pull-out hose is flexible and has good reach. The spout has a stream control switch (facing the wall) to change from regular water flow to a wider spray pattern. The water flow is strong (at max) and adjusts well. The spout has a very strong magnetic ring built in so it sticks to the faucet well and doesn’t hang loose. It’s a bit hard to pull at first, but I got used to it.
A few things to consider as possible downsides:
- The supplied plastic water lines (although long) are very stiff and aren’t very flexible and aren’t mesh, so one might need to get different ones for tight installations.
- Does not come with a cover (escutcheon) plate. At this price, it should! Not to mention most other faucets have one for dual installation options.
- The water control handle isn’t super smooth as on other faucets I’ve tried. So it’s a bit difficult to handle minute adjustments.
- Has an auto shut off after 4 minutes of constant water flow as per the manual. Might be an inconvenience for some.
- The included hose weight is useless. Instead of it being attached to the hose at one spot to pull, it simply has a hole and the hose running through it. So when the hose is pulled out the weight slides down instead of pulling down if it were attached. I had to attach my own.
Overall this is a great faucet and I do recommend it. It is a bit pricey though in my opinion. But if you want a quality faucet and a futuristic touch control, then get it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 11rdub11 Very Looking, Top Quality, and Cool
Look and feel, the faucet looks fantastic and has very good construction. The pull down has a good counterweight that makes it feel nice. the touch 20 works very well.
Installation, was easy, it was the same as a regular faucet with the addition of the battery pack that controls the touch sensor.
Extras, There is a small light on the bottom of the faucet that indicates the temperature of the water.
I would definitely recommend getting this faucet. It's great!

Nice faucet ! it comes well package and I must say the quality is second to non. The finish is top notch and works well with any single hole sink. Installation is easy and also has all the parts you need to replace an old faucet. The touch feature is a huge benefit to my household where we try to keep the germs controlled. This is a perfect touch to any kitchen and a must have for those who use their kitchen a lot !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RLO1951 Very nice faucet
It is our first bar touch faucet. The installation was very easy done by our friend, who is a plumber. The chrome finish is so beautiful that you want to look at it and enjoy. It has a very strong water pressure and pull down sprayer firmly goes back and fits perfectly. Touch option is an amazing option and especially in the bar. This faucet is a centre of attention in our bar and we are very happy with it.
The only thing I am wondering about is 5 year limited warranty. I think Delta should provide life time warranty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by soldbydon Classy Touch-Control Faucet
A top-of-the-line faucet with a lifetime warranty. Great feature of being able to touch the faucet anywhere for it to turn on/off, but needs occasional battery replacement (6 AA's); comes with batteries. Has extended water lines so you may not need to purchase additional lines. This version is for a bar sink; it is somewhat large so make sure you have the space for mounting it. Using a basin wrench may assist in installation; good instructions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by allthingsvu Classy yet elegant touch sprayer
This is a thing of beauty. Installation is simple like any other faucet. It took me about 45 minutes to install by myself. The instructions provided is simple to follow. It's a heavy duty faucet, not those cheap light weight ones. I love the fact that I can touch it and the water turns on and off. No need for your dirty hands to turn the handle. The batteries are included and can be changed out easily. Overall, if you are looking for a touch faucet this will do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sebastian An Elegant and beautiful Bar faucet.
This Delta Cassidy Touch, Single-Handle Pull-Down Sprayer Bar Faucet in Chrome is a very heavy duty piece of art for the kitchen.
It works very fine and the pull down sprayer docks back into place with a magnetic docking system.
Delta has made this new technology faucet in the old Victorian corset style, the bottom of the faucet is pulled in like a cinched corset. The cinched corset is in black and it houses the power LED. If it was not in black, it would have been more appealing.
The Touch2O Technology works great. It is very helpful if you have dirty hands. It allows water to be turned on and off with just a touch anywhere along the spout or handle
messy fingers. Tap anywhere on the spout or handle and the water is running. Turning off the water between tasks is easier too, with another touch.
The 2-function pull down wand operates in stream or spray mode.
Overall, it is a very beautiful faucet, and I hope it will be there for many years to come.

Nice and tall for those lobster pots here in Maine. I put this into one of the beach cottages because the old style faucet wasn't very practical for filling the lobster pot or cleaning it out. Installed easily. The first 2 faucets I got I had a plumber install. This one I did myself in under 1/2 an hour (and that includes modifying my old sink! My tenants love it!
