Franke Tap Flow Rates

With a variety of style, size and finish options to choose from, you'll be spoilt for choice, though don't forget that the water pressure in your home will affect your decision.

A plumber or retailer should be able to help you discover which pressure system you have so you can find the right tap for your needs.

Tap flow rates explained

Before choosing your Franke tap it is essential to check whether you have a high or low pressure water system.

If your property has a low pressure water system you will need to check the flow rating of the taps before you make a purchase. If you install a tap with a low flow rating into a low pressure water system you may be disappointed with the flow of water from your tap. In these instances it will be difficult to achieve a suitable mixed flow of water through the tap as the cold mains water is delivered at a higher pressure and will overpower the weaker hot water pressure.

If you have a high pressure system in your home, such as a combi-boiler or pumped system, you should be able to choose from the full range of taps in our range. We strongly recommend that your plumber or installer checks the water pressure in your home before making a purchase.
