Carron Phoenix Alba Kitchen Tap Valve,
The manufacturers changed c.2013 from 1427R valve to SP3547 valve. While either of these valves will fit in your tap we recommend that you order the same valve type as is in your own Tap e.g if you have the 1427R, then order the 1427R.... The Valve part that is in your Tap will be noted on your installation guide that came with your Tap. If you do not know what valve you have, then you can remove the handle of your own tap and compare this to the pictures here, and then order the same. Here is our simple DIY guide How to remove the handle on your Kitchen Tap
Remove valve covers:
The indicator on the Alba tap can be taken off using your finger nail. Then use a flat headed screwdriver to remove the brass screw. This will release the handle from the tap. Then use an industrial spanner to remove the valve. Put in the new valve and tighten with adjustable spanner. Replace handle. Screw back in brass screw and the indicator will pop back on.
It can be a common enough problem that when you remove your Hot Valve it looks different than the valve in the picture. It is most likely because the brass bush is still attached. There is only a Bush on the Hot valve. There is NO bush on the Cold side. The Bush code is 3409R
For tips on how to separate a Valve from a Brass Bush, see here.
If the Valve is stuck inside the Brass Bush then you will have to separate them OR buy a Brass Bush as well (see You May Also Like section below)
