SHANNON PATRICK SMITH Asked :
I am absolutely in love with this product and just have to have it. The only problem I am facing which may stop me from getting this product is the size and space the water tank will take. My unit under the sink doesnt have much space as it also fits a built in dustbin. what is the size of the tank and will it fit into a small compact space?
Answered By Franke :
The Minerva heating tank is designed to fit under the plinth of a standard 600 width unit, and the dimensions are: [L x W x H ] 550 x 211 x 142 mm. The product includes a filter system which is approximately 300 x 100 x 130 mm and a pressure relief valve which needs about 220 mm clearance from either the back or side of the unit, depending on available space, so please allow for this also.
Jim Asked :
Can the Franke Minerva 3 in 1 tap be fitted to a quartz or granite worktop without fear of thermal shock to the worktop from the tap?
Answered By Kevin :
To my knowledge, the franke Minerva 3 in 1 tap should not affect the granite or quartz when fitted to a worktop. i fitted mine to a new granite worktop in my new kitchen about 7 months ago and its fine so far.
Answered By paul :
Yes it can be fitted. Mine has been fitted to a quarts worktop for 2 years, and is fine. The boil feed tube is inside the tap carcase.
Answered By Brian :
Yes. No problem, the tap does not get hot at the base. Had it over a year and highly recommended.
Answered By Donna :
I have had my tap on a granite worktop for over a year and. Have had no problems. Just love this tap!
Answered By Gill :
Ours was not fitted to a granite worktop. Think it was laminate. But I would recommend them. Everything is so quick and you gain a bit of space from not having a kettle. Boiling veg etc is quicker as you start with boiling water. Tea takes a couple of mins. Would buy again.
Answered By Catherine :
Our tap was fitted to a granite worktop 18 months ago and we have had no problems
Answered By Belinda :
We have ours in a granite worktop and it is absolutely fine.
Answered By Malcolm :
We have fitted these to both granite and Quartz without any issues but the worktops do vary so best to check with the worktop manufacturers.

Can you tell me would we need to have a pressure release valve and does it include it? Thanks
