Franke Olympus Tap Valve



Franke Olympus Tap Valve if your Tap is dripping from the Spout. Fun code 133.0069.364 Cold, Fun code 133.0069.365   Part No. SP3561

This same part was listed in earlier installation guides from same manufacturer as 1427R and S1022 / S1023 please read carefully all the information below before ordering in case you have a really old Olympus with 20 spline valve or that you require a brass bush.  The Olympus Tap has been modified over the years in production. Accordingly, we supply the genuine earlier version of this Valve [aka 4276R] as it comes with a larger white seal underneath.  The later version of this Tap Valve comes with a Red or Blue seal.  The White seal Version of this valve covers all tap modifications made to this Tap over the years in production and therefore will work in your Tap irrespective of when produced. Here is our Guide How to remove the Handle on your Kitchen Tap. Here is our Guide 7 easy steps to replace kitchen tap valve.


Fun code 133.0069.364 Cold, Fun code 133.0069.365

You only require the brass bush if the existing one cannot be removed from the valve that you are replacing.  Further information on the Franke Olympus Brass Bush can be found here.

Please See below for more information on this part and images showing the valve by itself, and also images of the same valve inside the brass bush.


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.

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.

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

If the Franke Olympus Tap Valve is stuck inside the  Bush then you will have to separate them OR buy a  Bush as well.

For tips on how to separate a Valve from a  Bush, see here.

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).

POST DELIVERY TIMES - Getting slower to GB post Brexit & pre Christmas:

ROI / NI: Approx 2 days delivery by Post in ROI and can vary in NI (please allow for at least 1 week)

Great Britain: Unfortunately there is no such thing as first / second class mail in Ireland. There is just 'standard' post. Our current experience is that it is taking approx 2-3 weeks for goods to arrive in Great Britain by Post. But we are having reports of it taking even longer than this. This is outside of our control and the backlog appears to be due to customs clearance for all items creating a backlog, slowing down all inward parcels and post from EU.

COURIER DELIVERY TIMES Track & Trace (£6/£8) & we make no profit from these charges):

ROI / NI: Approx 2 days delivery by Fastways but it can occasionally take longer.

Great Britain: Average shipping time with DPD is approx 1 week (but can take longer) .

Please note that delivery times with DPD UK for goods shipped from Ireland are slower than DPD within Great Britain. Brexit means that all goods coming into Great Britain have to clear Customs and this has added delays to the process. Our current experience is that goods shipped with DPD UK currently take approx 1 week to be delivered, but it can occasionally take longer. We can provide tracking numbers if required.

Not shipping to UK Offshore Islands:

We are currently only shipping to England, Scotland, Wales, NI and ROI. We are currently unable for logistical & customs reasons to ship to Channel Islands, Isle of Man or any Isles off mainland GB.
