My Abode Kitchen Tap is dripping…

We supply Genuine (only) Abode Kitchen Tap Parts if your Abode Kitchen Tap is dripping.
To save your time, and money, it always makes sense to purchase the correct spare parts. Please feel free to contact us (using the contact button or email prior to purchasing for advice as that way it will ensure that you buy the correct genuine spare parts and also avoid any unnecessary returns.
Due to the fact that we supply genuine spare parts we can also advise you as to the best replacement e.g. sometimes either a Tap or a Spare Part has been modified over the years that the Tap is in production. Occasionally we will advise a ‘parent’ valve or a valve with a larger seal to ensure that even your old Abode Tap will operate as good as new.

Here is Direct Link to ALL the Abode Taps that we do genuine spare parts if you know what type of part you require. If you don’t then please continue reading this blog post for further guidance as to what are the most commmon issues and the relevant parts to fix these issues as this same Direct Link is also at the bottom of this Blogpost

Here below are the most common spare parts that need to be fixed to stop your Kitchen Tap dripping.

Usually your Abode Kitchen Tap is dripping from either (1) the spout, (2) less common is the handle and (3) where the spout meets the base.

If it is dripping from the Spout or Handle then if your Tap has two or three levers it is most likely that you need to change the valves (one, two or three) and / or the brass bush ring (but usually its just the valve) hot or cold.   If your Tap is a Single Lever Tap then it could be the Cartridge.  Also this guide here might help How to tell which Valve needs replacing Hot or Cold or Both?. We only supply complete Valves or Cartridges and not the individual components. Why ? because we believe that there is no point in tinkering with a valve i.e trying to see if it is the black rubber ring or if the ceramic discs are damaged for what the cost of a genuine valve or cartridge will cost.

The following posts might be of use to you :

If your tap is dripping where the spout meets the base then it is likely that you need to replace the O Rings (see below for O Rings) OR you have pinholes in your spout. If a customer purchases an O Ring Kit from us and it turns out that the spout has actual pinholes and the customer needs a full new spout (which always includes the O Rings and Aerator as standard) we actually discount the cost of the O Rings from the purchase of the Spout.

Here is all of the Abode Taps We Stock Spare Parts for.  You can see which Tap Picture resembles your own, and click on that to take you to the Spare Tap Parts in store for that particular Tap. Due to the high volume of Spare Parts we might have a part in store but not listed on the website. Please EMAIL us if we stock Spare Parts for your Tap if the specific part that you require is not listed.

In order to identify which  Valve you have that needs replacing we will need you to EMAIL the following to us:

1. 4 measurements
2. Picture of your Kitchen Tap showing full tap i.e. spout, body etc
3. Picture of your Valve.
4. Any markings on the valve e.g. SMR / San Marco / WRAS etc

Below are the 4 measurements that ideally we look for, but at a minimum we need the exact height from top to bottom (brass of the valve) and spline count (ridges) – 20, 24 or 28


You might find this guide 7 Easy Steps to replace Kitchen Tap Valve useful in removing your valve in order to measure it.

  • Length of Valve from top to bottom (brass) in mm
  • Diameter at thread: in mm
  • Number of splines – always an even number, e.g. 20, 28…
  • Nut (below splines) Height: in mm

Please make sure that when you have removed your valve, that the brass bush wasn’t removed as well (this surrounds the valve inside the tap) and you will need this for the new valve. If you find it impossible to separate the two we do supply brass bushes as well for San Marco Valves. For more information on removing the brass bush, see here.

O Rings.

The picture of your tap will help us identify which O Rings you require and then you can use this guide How to change a Kitchen O Ring Kit to change them.

Don’t forget to also email us a picture of your Tap.
