Franke Danube Tap Valve


Franke Danube Tap Valve

also previously known as Franke Professional Danube Tap Valve

The manufacturers changed the 20 Spline version from a two threaded Valve (SP1212) to a one threaded version of same valve with 20 splines, SP3819. We would strongly recommend that if you do not know whether you have the 20 Spline SP1212 Valve OR the SP819R valve in your Tap, order the SP1212 Valve.  Reason being that if you originally had the SP1212 valve and order the later valve SP3819 your Tap might still drip as your Tap is designed for the earlier valve with a slightly thicker seal. The SP1212 Valve works perfectly even if it turns out that you have the later SP3819 Valve.

If your Valve looks wider than the pictures, then the most likely explanation is tha the Brass Bush has come away with the valve, in which case you will need to order a brass bush part if you cannot separate
