Abode Fluid Kitchen Tap Valve
The current Abode Fluid Kitchen Tap Valve is a six sided valve SP3794.
Your own Tap might have the earlier valve SP3308 (which has two flat sides on the nut. This is a change by the manufacturer of the Abode Fluid Kitchen Tap.
Whichever Valve is in your own tap, you will receive the SP3794.
No Brass Bush is required with this Tap Valve.
The only issue to be aware of is that the earlier SP3308 is more difficult to remove. See below.
Diameter at thread: 20mm,
Nut Height: 9mm
Please Note: Some customers find it difficult to remove the earlier SP3308 Valve. You can try a mechanics long socket and ratchet tool to remove the Valve from this Tap OR We have a specially designed SP3308 Valve Removal Tool from the Abode Fluid Tap Manufacturer to remove it here.
The newer version of this valve with 6 sides on the nut is easier to deal with.
Recently we have noticed that the new valve is a little stiffer to push the handle onto. We have reported this back to the manufacturer but they assure us that there have been no changes of any consequence and it is just to do with the tolerance on the machining of the valves. If this does occur we would simply recommend ensuring that your own handle is clear inside of any residual debris and that you push the handle on and off the new valve a few times to loosen the splines slightly. You won’t damage your handle. Tightening your valve: We would also recommend that you do NOT overtighten this valve. As a rule of thumb, tighten as far as physically possible by hand, and then tighten 1/4 turn with an adjustable spanner.
The Hot and Cold Valve are not interchangeable as one opens clockwise and the other opens anti-clockwise.
