Franke Venician Tap Valve.  Chrome/SilkSteel : Production Date (approx.) : April 2011.

Before you buy, please read further below ensure that you have the Franke Venician Tap (since 2011) and not the earlier Phoenician Tap (that looks very similar) but takes a different Valve.


If your Tap is dripping from the Spout then you might need to change your Valves.  Here is our Guide 7 Easy Steps to replace Kitchen Tap Valve.

If your Tap is dripping where the Spout meets the Base you might need to replace your  O Ring Kit.

Which Tap do you have ?Franke Venician Tap (from April 2011) or the Phoenician Tap?


We have found that Customers mix up the two Taps as they are so similar in style but they take different Valves. If you do not have your Franke Installation Guide and are unsure of the date then the definitive way to establish WHICH Tap you have is to remove your own valve and check it. If it has SMR or San Marco stamped on it, and the measurements correlate to the 3984R Valve, then you have the Franke Venician Tap and you can order the Valves on this product page here.

If your Valve is stamped (Avillion or TCL) then it is most likely that you have the Phoenician Tap and you will find it here.

To illustrate how similar these two Taps look, here is a picture of the Franke Venician Tap (it is the Tap on the left in the picture) and the Phoenician Tap is the Tap on the right in the picture. You will note though that the handles are slightly different and this might also assist you.
