In some very rare instances we have come across an Olympus with 20 spline valve / 50mm tall , stamped San Marco Valve. You can remove your own handle and check the splines before ordering to eliminate ordering the wrong valve. In 99% of the Olympus, it is the 28 spline valve. There are images below showing the 20 spline and the 28 splines. If you need to order the 20 spline valve, this is old 1212R Valve and you can order this here.
Franke Olympus Tap Valve listed as 1427R / SP1427 / 3561R / SP3561
It suits the following Franke Olympus Taps:
Franke Olympus Tap
Franke Olympus S Tap
Franke Olympus Side Spray
Franke Olympus Filterflow Tap (which takes One 1427R H and One 1427R C for mains Cold and 1427R Cold for filtered Cold.
This Franke Olympus Tap Valve has two sets of threads: One Set ABOVE the Black O Ring and One Set BELOW.
Nut Height: 8, Splines: 28, Overall height: 53mm, Diameter at thread: 21mm
Due to modifications in this Tap by the manufacturer over the years, we supply the original white sealed version of this valve (larger seal underneath). We use code 4276R to distinguish from later valve used in the Tap which has a coloured flatter seal. This is a genuine Spare Part. Parts are labelled Hot & Cold. If opened and you cannot tell apart, as both Hot & Cold Valves have white seals underneath: the Hot valve opens Clockwise and has nicks on the side of the nut. The Cold Valve opens Anticlockwise and has no nicks.
It DOES NOT SUIT
Franke Olympus Triflow & Franke Olympus Trispray. These two Taps were discontinued Spring 2011 – and you can find the Valve for these Two earlier Taps Here
Before ordering your replacement Franke Olympus Valve (if you haven’t removed your own), you might require the Olympus Bush for Valve as well. This is a brass cylindrical piece that the valve sits into inside the Tap. Sometimes these parts stick together and when the Valve is removed, the Bush comes out as well. Should you also require a Brass Bush (one per valve), the same part number SP3868 is used on both Hot and Cold Valve.
It can be a common enough problem that when you remove your Olympus Valve it looks different than the valve in the picture. It is most likely because the Part SP3868 Bush for Valve has been removed alongside your Valve. The Part SP3868 Bush for Valve is a separate part, and does not come with the Valve. It has to be ordered separately.
To explain: Here is the Franke Olympus Valve
Here is the same Franke Olympus Tap Valve stuck inside the Bush
If the Franke Olympus Tap Valve is stuck inside the Bush then you will have to separate them OR buy a Bush as well.
It is one bush per valve.
How to remove the handle to access Valve:
Remove the small grub screw which should be located on the underside of the Franke Olympus handle. You would need to use a small Allen key to do this.
If your Tap has handles like this with a colour indicator, your valve might look different (but SP3561 is compatible).
You might also have a Brass Bush with a lip. We have the SP3886 Bush with lip,
We don’t stock the earlier version of the bush that comes with a narrow lip
but the current valve will fit in this bush
