Franke Vesta Tap Valve



Franke Vesta Tap Valve for the Cold Water side or Hot Water side of your Kitchen Tap.

 The manufacturer has changed the Vesta Tap Valve from the 1427R to 3547R c. 2012.  These Valves are NOT interchangeable as the handle has been modified internally.  We would recommend that you remove your valve prior to ordering to check which one you have.
Here is our Guide 7 Easy Steps to replace Kitchen Tap Valve.

Please note that the hot and cold valves are NOT the same i.e. you cannot put a Hot Valve in the cold side and vice versa.
See here for the Technical Specifications of the Franke Vesta Tap.



Franke Vesta Tap Valve

As this Bridge Lever Tap has levers that are Horizontal when the tap is turned off and are turned towards the middle of the tap to turn the water On, the valves need to work in the opposite way to a typical two lever tap. A Valve opens Clockwise or Anti-Clockwise. In a Standard Two Lever Tap (non-Bridge) the levers operate Vertically i.e you pull the Lever down towards you to Turn On and Push back Up to Turn Off. In a Bridge Mixer Tap the Levers are turned Horizontally i.e You pull the Lever towards the Centre of the Tap to Turn On, and Push back to Turn Off. If your Bridge Lever Tap is fitted correctly, then when the Tap is in the OFF position, the Levers point outwards, and the Hot Feed is on the Left side of your Tap as you face your Tap i.e stand in front of it. You then need to Order an Anti-Clockwise Valve for the Hot Side and a Clock-wise Valve for the Cold Feed (which would be on your right). 'Hot' valves are Clockwise, and Cold Valves are Anti-Clockwise, so in effect you will be ordering a 'Cold' Anti-Clockwise Valve for the Hot Side of your Bridge Lever Tap, and a 'Hot' Clockwise Valve for the 'Cold' Side of your Tap e.g. the opposite of what you would order if you had a standard Two Lever Tap where Levers are operated vertically. .
