    Hi,

    We've just had a kitchen fitted, with a Franke Olympus tap (http://www.frankeonline.co.uk/olympus-338-p.asp) into a granite worktop.

    The base of the tap is really solid in the worktop.

    However, the swiveling spout of the tap is far more wobbly than I expected. There's several mm of play. Enough to make me hold the tap gingerly when I want to rotate it.

    I've removed the spout, checked the o-rings and checked the grub screw seats into the slot in the plastic washer. But it still wobbles.

    Please does anyone have any comments on if this is this normal?

    Thanks.

    Does it leak from the body to the spout?

    Hi,

    No, I can't see any water leaking from the base of the spout. So I think the o-rings are sealing things as expected.

    Thanks.

    Andrew.
