Robin Harrod Asked :Re Franke Minerva. Can the filter be housed some distance (3m) from the hot water tank as there is no room for the filter under the sink?
Answered By QS Team :
Franke technical person has spoken to their Design Engineer. He advises that it is possible, but not recommended, as the extra distance that the water will be travelling will potentially affect the flow rate of the boiling water.
julia kealey Asked :Does the Franke Minerva kettle tap come with a water filter as my water is hard; and it does not seem to feature in the list of what you get in the pack.
Answered By Franke :
The Minerva system comes complete with a water conditioning cartridge that protects the tank from the build-up of lime scale, and also improves the taste and odour by removing chemicals and heavy metals from the supply. This filter is only intended for the water going to the boiling side of the tap; the mains hot and cold side mixer is designed to run without filtration. The filter requires replacing every six months for an average family and cost £35.95 inc VAT and delivery within the UK.
