CDA TT56 Traditional Bridge Lever Kitchen Tap Valve Details

Nut Height: 8, Splines: 28, Overall height: 53mm, Diameter at thread: 21mm

VERY IMPORTANT: Provided that your Levers are extended outwards (like open arms) when Turned OFF (which is the correct way it should be fitted)

  • Cold Water Feed (right hand side of your tap as you are looking at it) = Order a HOT CO

  • Hot Water Feed (left hand side of your tap as you are looking at it) = Order a COLD ACO

 

(which is the opposite to what you would expect, but horizontal levers open the opposite way to standard two lever taps).

Here is some further detail / explanation:

Provided your Tap has been plumbed correctly i.e. that the levers are extended horizontally when Tap in OFF position (and the Hot feed is on the left and the Cold feed on the right), then please note the following: The norm in Industry when referring to Cold or Hot Valves usually means that a Clockwise Opening Valve is known as a Hot Valve (CO) and an Anti-clockwise (ACO) Valve is known as a Cold Valve. However, in a Bridge Lever Tap where the Levers operate Horizontally rather than Vertically, the opposite applies (provided your Tap is plumbed as described above). This means that you would need our 'Hot CO' Valve for the Cold Feed and a 'COLD ACO' for the Hot Water Feed. If in doubt, remove your own valves first and order the same i.e if your own Valve has a blue seal, order the Cold ACO Valve. If your own Valve has a red seal, order the Hot CO Valve. If your own Valves have white seals, then the COLD ACO valve will have NO nick on the nut, whereas the HOT CO valve will have a nick on each side of the 6 sided nut below the splines. If still in doubt, order a Pair. Please see here an example of a Bridge Lever Tap and note that the Hot Valve is on the Cold Side and the Cold Valve is on the Hot Side. bridge lever valves with CO AND ACO Symbols

 

Useful Tip

It can be a common enough problem that when you remove your  Valve it looks different than the valve in the picture. It is most likely because the brass bush is still attached.

 
1427R (3561R) Valve and Brass Bush

Valve and Brass Bush. The Valve should come out of Tap with no Brass Bush surrounding it. If the Brass Bush is stuck to the Valve and you can’t separate, then you will need to also replace the Brass Bush.
Here is the same Valve stuck inside the Brass Bush
