Tony Horne Asked :I have a Franke sink (two basins, one-quarter size) with a swing spray tap now. I wish to replace the tap. Will any Franke tap in the range fit the hole in the sink? Thks AJH
Answered By QS Team :
The tap hole for the taps are standard and therefore should fit.
Margaret henshaw Asked :Does the tap head move e.g swivel between main sink & a half bowl sink?
Answered By Louisa :
The tap head swivels fully to both left and right. I only have one big sink (Franke Mythos) but I can see that it would probably also serve a half sink bowl if I had one. I love this tap, the pull-out nozzle is fantastic.
ANDREA CANNES Asked :Hi I have a query regarding this product. A friend of mine has a pull out nozzle kitchen tap similar to this one but from a different manufacture, the pull out nozzle tends to become stiff after a couple of months of using the tap, even after the tap being replaced by the manufacture the same problem occurred. Just wanted to know what this tap is like after using it for around a year.
Answered By Messrs :
No, Ive not had that trouble at all. However I have discovered that the flexi hose does get quite dirty (no idea how stuff gets in there!) so I do regularly clean the hose by pulling the nozzle out as far as I can and wiping it down with spray. The tap is very solid so it needs to be securely fastened to the sink and I always hold the "hoop" of the tap with one hand while I pull out the nozzle with the other hand.
Answered By Matthew :
Hi, We have had this tap for about 3 years with no problems...the pull out nozzle still works perfectly.
Answered By Darren :
Works totally fine, it would be like new if I cleaned it enough. I would recommend getting it.
Answered By Stephen :
I have now fitted more than 8 of these taps with no problems. I have one fitted in my own kitchen (it is over 10 years old) It is important to make sure the pull out hose has no obstructions and the lead weight is placed in the correct position. You must have a large enough hole through the countertop and/or sink. For the pull out to work correctly. If necessary I remove a section of the shelf in the under sink cupboard so that the weight is hanging rather than resting on the shelf. Also I often build a small enclosure (boxing) around the pipe work to stop anything that is stored under the sink becoming snagged on the hose.
Answered By Franke :
If the problem is with pulling the hose from the end of the spout this could be cause by the hose becoming kinked. If this is the case you will need to disconnect the hose from under the tap and unravel it.
T Mepstead Asked :Please, could you tell me if the actual base of the neck turns? Please, many thanks.
