Lamona Garda Water Filter Tap Valve and Cartridge
In some very rare instances we have come across an old Garda Tap with hot 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 Garda, 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 hot side, this is old 1212R Valve and you can order this here. If your diverter cartridge has 20 splines please contact us with pictures of Tap and part to assist you.

It can be a common enough problem that when you remove your Lamona Garda Water Filter Tap Valve for Hot Water Side it looks different than the Valve in the picture (or the Valve that you purchased from us). It is most likely because the brass bush is still attached.
Here is the same Lamona Garda Water Hot Valve stuck inside the Brass Bush
If the Lamona Garda Water Hot Valve is stuck inside the Brass Bush then you will have to separate them OR buy a Brass Bush as well.

We ship from Ireland. DPD have notified us that they are experiencing shipping delays in GB due to Brexit (Customs). They currently advise us that these delays are temporary. However, as per the Large Popup notice on our website that is there until you Dismiss it, you should allow a minimum of 1-2 weeks delays for your order to be cleared by customs. This backlog is due to the volume of goods now going to /from GB that have to go through Customs from January 1, 2021 due to Brexit. It is outside of our control. (There will be no extra or hidden charges with your order).
We intend that Brexit will have no financial impact on our customers.
For further details please see our Brexit section here.
