FRANKE Zurich Ceramic Disc Quarter Turn Tap Chrome : Excellent delivery and after sales service

Great tap easy to install and works beautifully.

A very good tap easy to use would recomend it.

Mid range tap that has a bit of quality. . Easily fitted and the quarter turn on/off feature is a real boon for my wife who doesn’t have much strength in her hands. My cold water supply tank level is only about eight or nine feet above the the spout in the kitchen, but even so both hot&cold pressure levels are similar to that achieved by the previous mixer tap that came bog standard with the sink. How it would perform with 40 lbs of pressure hammering through it i can’t say. But it fits our low pressure country system very well. It tends to drip until the spout is pushed into a central position over the vegetable drainer, but quickly stops. I should mention that our water supply is from a borehole.

Nice tap but i have now purchased two with faults. If you need to pay a plumber to fit this can be a nightmare and expensive. I suggest that you buy local (not via internet) and check thoroughly at time of purchase. Good looking tap and customer service from franke good.

Far superor than the one that came with the unit. Time will tell how good this item is , but certainly we are more than satisfied with the product as it is performing now, and would recommend it as a replacement when required.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Looks good, seems well built, but suffers from “after-dribble”
  • perlator for franke taps
  • Mid range tap that has a bit of quality.

Looks good, seems well built, but suffers from ‘after-dribble’. This tap is fairly heavy but was ok to fit directly to our stainless steel sink (franke opera) without adding any extra support. I like the shape of the neck, and the taps turn easily, without feeling loose/sloppy. Only drawback is that there is often a substantial dribble of water from the spout a while after turning the tap off. This can happen anything from five seconds up to a minute or two later.

Not fitted yet, but have used franke in the past & found them to be of good quality & easy to fit (the brace is a must)this set will be going in our new utility room. They are good quality, good design & good price.

    Nice taps but maybe a bit large as we had to turn the pressure down to stop water splashing everywhere.

    Not up to usual franke quality. I thought that buying franke would get me a quality product. Like many others, i’ve found this is not the case with this particular tap. As others say, it splashes and dribbles. Mine’s fed with equal pressure hot and cold from the tank in the loft; a pressure of about 0. 7 bar, not an unreasonable setup for a kitchen tap. The flow isn’t particularly great (even though i’ve used 15mm pipe connections and full bore isolating valves under the sink, ie no flow-restricting flexibles) but it still splashes. The only way to stop it splashing into its matching franke sink basin is to reduce the flow to a dribble. Also, from time to time it will disgorge a gurgle of water from the nozzle for no good reason. The nozzle construction is an outer casting (cold) and an inner plastic pipe (hot) which are presumably designed to meet non-mixing requirements of some water regulation (which is not applicable in my installation as both hot and cold are from tank in loft) so the water streams come out as a hot stream from the centre of the spout and a cold turbulent stream from the outer of the spout.
