Carron Phoenix Opus Tap: how to remove the spout

Q: Customer who wished to replace the O Rings in their Carron Phoenix Opus Tap but did not know how to remove the spout.

A: There is a shroud (like a large nut) at the base of your spout, take this off by turning it anticlockwise
then simply just pull the spout out, replace Opus Tap o-rings.

    I am trying to take off a carton phoenix opus tap spout to change o rings. There are no grub or allum screws just the shroud nut. Is the spout meant to just pull out? If so it is stuck. Is there a technique for pulling it out?

    Thank you

    What screw driver should I use to remove the handle? Due to the placement of the hole (underside) I can’t seem find the right tool for it.

      Hi Andrew, the handle for the Opus Tap is removed by taking of the indicator and using a flat head screwdriver. If your Tap handle has the hole underside then you may not have an Opus Tap. If you send a picture to of your complete Tap we should be able to confirm which Tap you have. Regards Trevor.

    HI Andrew. do you mean removing the ‘handle’ on the hot water side ? can you clarify or explain further as the above post is about removing the ‘spout’ whereas in your query you mention the ‘hot water side’
