Howdens Arona Monobloc TAP9103 Valve
Diameter at thread: 20mm
Nut Height: 9mm
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.
Please Note: Some customers find it difficult to remove the earlier3308R Valve 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 Or we have a specially designed 3308R Valve Removal Tool from the Manufactuer to remove it here.
The newer version of this valve has 6 sides on the nut so is easier to deal with or you can use a size 14 hex key.
Recently we have noticed that the new valve is a little stiffer to push the handle onto. We have reported this back to the manufacturer but they assure us that there have been no changes of any consequence and it is just to do with the tolerance on the machining of the valves. If this does occur we would simply recommend ensuring that your own handle is clear inside of any residual debris and that you push the handle on and off the new valve a few times to loosen the splines slightly. You won’t damage your handle.
Tightening your valve: We would also recommend that you do NOT over-tighten this valve. As a rule of thumb, tighten as far as physically possible by hand, and then tighten 1/4 turn with an adjustable spanner.
