Pleased with product,but disappointed to find that the tap does not have a spray facility.
Brilliant tap but needs extra spray nozzle. Beautifully smooth action, and looks good. But it was very splashy compared to my previous tap, and after being turned off it always suddenly produced an eggcupful of water, up to a minute or so later, which was probably what was left in the curve at the top of the tap. Others have mentioned this too. A few days after fitting the tap i fitted to it a miracle tap spray (about £8. This cured the problem completely. Also, because you can direct the spray and switch between jet & spray, it’s easier to clean down the sink. (i did have to add an extra washer to the tap spray attachment to get it to seal properly to the zurich spout. )trade in post miracle tap sprayer chrome/black.

Been using it for some time now with nothing to complain about.
I bought this tap to replace one of the same make and model which had started to drip after 4 years use. ‘franke’ would have replaced the offending cartridge had i kept the purchase receipt. I installed the tap myself, relatively easy and straightforward. It took a little longer than expected but this was due to my arthritis and the confined space beneath my sink. The water mains pressure where i live is only just above one bar so i do not suffer the hot/cold mixing problems that others appear to have. Occasionally water does hold back into the top of the spout when the water is turned off and then suddenly pours out, but it isn’t a vast amount and doesn’t present a problem. The spout is fairly stiff to swivel, i expect that it will loosen off with use. Overall i am happy with the product and supplier.
First class service and product.
Franke Zurich Ceramic Disc Quarter Turn Tap Chrome : The only reason that i did not give a five star rating is because the plumber said the task of fitting it could have been a lot easier if it came with a flexi hose instead of the metal connection otherwise, i love it, we don’t have to struggle to open or close pipes when hands is wetand soapy.
