I have 2 Franke soap dispensers installed into a Corian countertop... one holds dishwashing liquid, the other liquid hand soap. They keep clogging up even though I always dilute the soaps when adding more - 1/2 water + 1/2 soap. I think that over time, the water is floating to the top & the soap is settling to the bottom of the reservoirs. Does anyone know how to keep soap and water in suspension so they don't separate? I'd welcome any suggestions about how to keep the dispensers from getting clogged. My husband wants to remove them and plug up the holes in the Corian. HELP!!!

You may want to consider NOT diluting the soaps......The water starts the process of the soap breaking down causing the clog........concentrated soap generally stays clog-free.....

You can also find this inexpensive tubing device that allows your Franke to pump directly from the large original bottle of soap/lotion....It gets rave reviews on the Kitchen Forums......
