Rangemaster Belfast Traditional Tap TBL1 Valve



Rangemaster Belfast Traditional Tap TBL1 Valve, For

  • TBL1CM/ Colour: Chrome
  • TBL1BF/ Colour: Brushed Finish

You might require different screws depending on the age of your tap – screws with these valves included.

Please read below before ordering any valves as to which valve to order as this tap works differently from your standard two lever tap due to the levers being horizontal when the valves are turned off (closed) AND also because Rangemaster do two different Belfast Traditional Bridge Mixer Taps – TBL1 and TBL3 and the Valves are not the same in both styles of Taps.

The earliest version of the TBL1 takes the 1265R 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.

Please note that there is another Rangemaster Bridge Mixer Tap, TBL3 which has more modern style handles and longer legs and takes a different Valve. To illustrate the difference so that you do not order a Valve for the wrong Belfast Tap:
Here is the Rangemaster Belfast Traditional Tap TBL1 (note the shorter legs and the handles are more ‘antique’ in style. This is the Valve that you would be ordering here (taking 28 splines / 53mm tall).

bridge lever valves with CO AND ACO Symbols

Example of a bridge mixer tap (using Franke Bridge blueprint) for illustrative purposes only


Bridge lever valves with CO AND ACO Symbols
A Cold Valve opens Anti-clockwise (ACO) and a Hot Valve opens Clockwise (CO).
A two lever tap usually has two valves known as ‘Hot’ (CO) and ‘Cold'(ACO).
The Cold (ACO) Valve can have a blue indicator underneath (but not always). Sometimes it can be white.
The Hot (CO) Valve can have a red indicator underneath (but not always). Sometimes it can be white.
BUT the Hot (CO) Valve USUALLY has a nick on every side of the nut to distinguish it from the Cold Valve of the same measurements / specifications.

If you need to replace the Valve for the Cold Water Feed (on the right hand side) you will need to order a standard Hot Valve for the right hand side of your tap as you have to turn your lever Clockwise (towards the centre of the Tap) to turn on (open) the Valve i.e. Clockwise, which is a ‘Hot’ Valve. The reverse holds for the Hot Water side i.e a Valve that turns Anti-Clockwise i.e a ‘Cold’ Valve. This is as per the Installation Guide excerpt above.
