If your Franke Zurich Tap dripping from either (1) the spout (2) the handle or (3) where the spout meets the base.
Please note that the Zurich ‘Filter Tap’ takes a different COLD Diverter Cartridge but otherwise, the same guide applies to the Filter Tap version of the Zurich as to the non-filter Version. The link to the Filter flow Zurich Tap is at the end of this blog.

If your Franke Zurich Tap Dripping from the Spout or the Handle then it is most likely that you need to change the valves (one or both) and / or the brass bush ring (but usually its just the valve) hot or cold. Here is our Guide 7 Easy Steps to replace Kitchen Tap Valve. Also this guide here might help How to tell which Valve needs replacing Hot or Cold or Both?

If your Franke Zurich Tap Dripping where the Spout meets the Base you might need to replace your Franke Zurich Tap O Ring Kit SP1239

Here is the link to all our Franke Zurich Kitchen Tap Spare Parts.

The manufacturers changed c.2013 from 1212R valve to 3819R valve.  We would recommend that if you do not know whether you have the SP1212 Valve OR the SP3819 valve in your Tap, then remove your own valve and check before ordering. If you don’t or cannot do this, then order the SP1212 Valve but should it turn out that you have the later valve and the new valve drips in your tap, then we cannot be responsible.

See below for valve measurements & more valuable information.

If your valve looks like this in the image below, then the brass bush is still attached and you will need to separate and reuse with the new valve, or if you cannot separate, then buy a new brass bush as well.
