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, TBL1 which has white ceramic effect handles. It has different legs and the handle also looks different and it takes a DIFFERENT valve.
Here is a close up of the Traditional Belfast Bridge Mixer Tap TBL3 that you can order Valves for here (note the long adjustable legs of the Tap and the modern handles (which are available in the Chrome finish in Chrome, White or Black):
Now take a look at the other Rangemaster Belfast Traditional Tap TBL1- pictured below – and note that it has shorter legs and the handles are more ‘antique’ in style. You CANNOT order Valves for the TB1 Tap on this product page. You need to go to a different product page to order Valves for the TBL1 Tap, here (as this TBL1 Tap takes a 20 spline / 50mm Valve).
Bridge lever valves with CO AND ACO Symbols
Please see here the Installation Guide for the Rangemaster Traditional Belfast Bridge Lever Tap.
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.[/notification]
It can be a common enough problem that when you remove your Valve it looks different than the valve in the picture. It is most likely because the brass bush is still attached.
For tips on how to separate a Valve from a Brass Bush, see here.
If the Valve is stuck inside the Brass Bush then you will have to separate them OR buy a Brass Bush as well (see You May Also Like section below)
If your Tap is dripping where the Spout meets the Base you might need to replace your Franke Bridge Lever Tap O Ring Kit 1506R
