Franke Sion Kitchen Tap Valve
The current Franke Sion Valve is a six sided valve SP3794.
Your installation guide might specify the SP3308 (which has two flat sides on the nut.
133.0150.219 COLD VALVE 3308R-C
133.0150.220 HOT VALVE 3308R-H
In this tap the 'Hot' Valve means that it opens Clockwise to turn ON the water. A 'Cold' Valve opens Anti-Clockwise to turn ON the water.
This Franke Tap Valve has been discontinued but the new SP3794 is the replacement
133.0358.053 Hot valve SP3794-H
133.0358.055 Cold valve SP3794-C
and this is a change by the manufacturer of the Franke Sion Tap.
Whichever Franke Sion Valve is in your own tap, you will receive the SP3794 so even if you have the earlier 3308R / SP3308, the 3794R/SP3794 will fit and work the same.
No Brass Bush is required with this Franke Sion Tap Valve.
The only issue to be aware of is that the earlier SP3308 is more difficult to remove. See below.
Diameter at thread: 20mm,
Nut Height: 9mm
Please Note: Some customers find it difficult to remove the earlier SP3308 Valve (133.0150.219 Cold /130.0120.220 Hot) which has 2 flat sides on the nut. You can try a mechanics long socket and ratchet tool to remove the Valve from this Tap OR We have a specially designed SP3308 Valve Removal Tool from the Franke Sion Manufacturer to remove it here.
The newer version of this valve has 6 sides on the nut so is easier to deal with or use a size 14 hex key.
The Hot and Cold Valve are not interchangeable as the Hot opens clockwise and the Cold opens anti-clockwise.
