Franke Eiger Kitchen Tap Valve
Please note that due to the fact that we do not know the age of your Eiger Tap, we will ship the earlier valve with white seal underneath as that covers all Eiger taps, old and more recent. More recent Taps have a red / blue seal underneath but are not as effective as a replacement in the older Taps.
SP1427R/SP3561 Hot – 133.0194.088
SP1427R/SP3561 Cold – 133.0194.089
SP3868 Brass Bush – 133.0312.538
Below is example of Valve same as Eiger in a different Tap, but it shows the 28 splines. This valve has bush around it, 3868R (like the Eiger Tap) so when you remove your own handle, if you have the Franke Eiger Tap, then your valve / bush would look like this below. There are other ‘lookalike’ taps that take different valves, so unless you are sure that you have a Franke Tap, it is worthwhile removing the handle and checking. The Franke Eiger Handle takes a 2mm allen key to loosen the grub screw (but place towel underneath to catch grub screw because they are so small).
Below is one example of a Tap similar to Eiger. Note the 20 spline valve
Other checks to see if you have Eiger or a lookalike Tap ? : Your own handle should have C or H etched in the top of the lever (that is not to say that other brands don’t have similar, but if your handle does not have this etching, then it is Not the Eiger). Check your own handle measurements: – does it conform to the Franke Eiger handle measurements ? Overall height – 89mm. Lever height only – 63mm
NB Please look at pictures of Valve shown with and without the Brass Bush attached before purchase. The Brass Bush is sold as a separate item as it is not always needed.
Measurements of this 28/8 Valve with thread:
Nut Height: 8, Splines: 28, Overall height: 53mm, Diameter at thread: 21mm.
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.
Here is the same Valve stuck inside the Brass Bush

If the Valve is stuck inside the Brass Bush then you will have to separate them OR buy a Brass Bush
