I am on my second Little Butler in an 18-month period and have had many problems with leaking. The unit has leaked out of the bottom, out of the gasket at the top that goes to the faucet, and out of the tubing between the unit and the faucet (my appliance dealer heard rumors that the tubing was recalled but no one has volunteered to replace it). Getting anything fixed involves a major game between Franke, their distributor and a company that supposedly did add-on work on the unit I have. My tap water tastes good but apparently has a lot of stuff in it because we use a filter every two months (they are supposed to last six). Another friend of mine has the same unit and hasn't had as many problems, but he only uses it rarely. My use has been heavy.

The latex tubing between the tank and the spout will develop weak spots and leak over time. We installed our first Franke dispenser at our previous home in 1999. After 5 years, the latex tubing developed a leak just above the connector at the top of the hot water tank. We installed another unit in our present home in 2007 and it also is starting to leak at the same spot. Franke needs to replace the latex tubing with a more permanent solution like copper tubing. Avoid this model.

I agree with the one star reviewer. The piping and connectors that comes with this are bad. I've gotten replacement parts from Franke and the install is solid, it just keeps leaking at two places : the plastic tee between the copper pipes and the junction from hot water tank to plastic tube that goes up into the unit.

We have had two of these units since 2007. As the other people mentioned the tubing from the tank to the faucet leaks at the connection from the tank. The tubing continually degrades at that location and sprays water all over anything under your sink every time you use it. It takes a while to notice leaking and has completely destroyed our cabinet from water damage because of so many leaks. We are afraid to use it anymore. You would think they could design a better system than this, or at least use a tubing that doesn't break down and turn to jelly. We liked the unit, but hated worrying about the leaks. We now use the microwave to heat our water!
