My Rangemaster Kitchen Tap is dripping….

We stock Genuine Rangemaster Kitchen Tap Parts.


Rangemaster & Leisure are now part of the one Company so whether your Tap is a Leisure Tap or a Rangemaster Tap, the following applies.

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

“Rangemaster” might be stamped on your Tap or a Code. Please send a picture of your tap and any stamps to us and that way we can identify your tap and spare parts that you need.

If you plan to fix your Rangemaster Tap yourself then you will need to know which parts to Order. Don’t hestitate to contact us, using the contact button at the bottom right of this page, or by email to, with any queries as we are delighted to assist you.

Here below are the main causes and solutions of most Kitchen Taps dripping.

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?

The following posts might be of use to you :

To remove a valve in a Traditional Rangemaster tap follow these instructions:

  1. Remove the decorative “Hot” or “Cold” indicator on the handle using a small flathead screwdriver.
  2. Loosen and remove the screw holding the valve in place. If the screw is seized, use WD-40 or an alternative lubricant to loosen it.
  3. Using an adjustable spanner grip the central hexagonal nut of the valve and unscrew while holding the tap with your other hand for stability.
  4. Remove the valve and replace with the appropriate replacement valve.

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).

Here is all of the Rangemaster 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.

If you don’t see your Rangemaster Tap listed, then you should still send us pictures because your Tap might not be a Rangemaster Tap but we might still know the model and still be able to supply you with the Spare Tap Part that you need. If it is a Valve / Cartridge that you need and you are able to remove it, then please send us pictures . While you have the part out do take some measurements if you can as they can be very useful. Here is all the information that we would find most useful and if you can even send some of the following it will all help:

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.
