Lamona Victorian Bridge Tap Valve 3561R.
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. .
It can be a common enough problem that when you remove your Kitchen Tap Valve 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 Valve stuck inside the Brass Bush.
If the Valve is stuck inside the Brass Bush then you will have to separate them OR buy a Brass Bush as well. Please contact us if this is the case.
