Excellent kitchen sink tap
25-Jul-2014
By
, Wokingham
"This tap looks good and performs well although the installation instructions could be clearer. Only a fixing bolt and the pipes protrude through the sink's hole, i.e. it relies on clamping the top and bottom fixings together to hold the tap in place. I used a short piece of plastic waste pipe as a sleeve to slide snugly into the bottom of the tap and protrude through the sink hole. This ensured that the tap located centrally and securely. I think that Franke should have supplied something like this short sleeve although, in the box, there is leaflet about an optional clamp that can be bought to make the tap fitting more rigid."

Looking good Franke!

"Purchased after recommendation & have been very pleased. Very stylish looks, easy to use & plumb. Price is probably a little more than other styles I've seen, but you pay for the quality of the finish & the Franke reputation! (You have to pay for this quality). Would certainly recommend this product as it's the perfect finishing touch for any new modern kitchen!"

Franke ascona in silk
15-Jun-2014
By
, Walton-on-Thames
"A great tap, that feels very high quality and well engineered. Mine was the silk version (chrome also available) and the finish is faultless. Was easy to swap with standard fittings.
Highly recommended."

Great tap

"Easy to install and a great looking tap that works smoothly. Seems solid and moves nicely. I would recommend the franke brace as our stainless steel sink does flex slightly."

Quality item
26-Nov-2013
By
, Somerset
"This is an excellent tap - for this quality also.good value. Bought thanks to earlier positive reviews which I fully endorse. Splash-free, easily operated taps (my wife has Parkinson's so this was an important criterion) and a lovely finish which looks as if it will last. Early days yet - what I ultimately think of it will depend on how long it remains leak-free hence I cannot really award a 'reliability' score!"

Looks nice but slow flow....
12-Oct-2014
By
, Belfast
"Ordered this to go with a Franke sink from Screwfix.
Tap looks the business and the finish is great with smooth tap operation but upon fitting the hot flow is pathetic.
States on the Screwfix description that "it is suitable for high and low pressure systems" but after investigation on the Franke website it states it's not suitable for low pressure systems.
Given the pitifully slow rate from my tap would suggest that it's not suitable.
Not sure if my system would be classed as low pressure but thought that ordering a tap that was "supposedly" suitable for both would be sufficient but appears not.
So now I have spent £130 on a tap that I may have to replace because of Screwfix's inaccurate description.
Not happy.

Not suitable for low pressure
03-Oct-2014
By
, Essex
"The information on the screwfix site is mistaken. This tap requires 0.5 pressure to operate and therefore had to be returned"
