Rangemaster Traditional Belfast Bridge Tap TBL3/WH Valve

Colour: Chrome (TAP4810) &  TBL3BF/ Colour: Brushed Finish

Please read below before ordering any valves, as this tap works differently from your standard two lever tap due to the levers being horizontal when the valves are turned off (closed)

Description

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.

Two things that you have to do is

  1. Identify which Rangemaster Bridge you have , and
  2. Order the correct valve for the water feed you are trying to fix (they work the opposite way from what you would expect, see details below)

1. Which Rangemaster Bridge Tap do I have ? – the Valve here is for the most ‘modern’ styles of this Tap below

  • Nut Height: 8, Splines: 28, Overall height: 53mm, Diameter at thread: 21mm

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 two Rangemaster Belfast Traditional Taps below and take a look at the handles and legs.  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).

2. Which Valve to buy, CO or ACO ? WHICH BRIDGE TAP DO I HAVE?

VERY IMPORTANT: Provided that your Levers are extended outwards (like open arms) when Turned OFF (which is the correct way it should be fitted)

  • Cold Water Feed (right hand side of your tap as you are looking at it) = Order a HOT CO

  • Hot Water Feed (left hand side of your tap as you are looking at it) = Order a COLD ACO

 

(which is the opposite to what you would expect, but horizontal levers open the opposite way to standard two lever taps.

Here is some further detail / explanation:

Provided your Tap has been plumbed correctly i.e. that the levers are extended horizontally when Tap in OFF position (and the Hot feed is on the left and the Cold feed on the right), then please note the following: The norm in Industry when referring to Cold or Hot Valves usually means that a Clockwise Opening Valve is known as a Hot Valve (CO) and an Anti-clockwise (ACO) Valve is known as a Cold Valve. However, in a Bridge Lever Tap where the Levers operate Horizontally rather than Vertically, the opposite applies (provided your Tap is plumbed as described above). This means that you would need our 'Hot CO' Valve for the Cold Feed and a 'COLD ACO' for the Hot Water Feed. If in doubt, remove your own valves first and order the same i.e if your own Valve has a blue seal, order the Cold ACO Valve. If your own Valve has a red seal, order the Hot CO Valve. If your own Valves have white seals, then the COLD ACO valve will have NO nick on the nut, whereas the HOT CO valve will have a nick on each side of the 6 sided nut below the splines. If still in doubt, order a Pair. Please see here an example of a Bridge Lever Tap and note that the Hot Valve is on the Cold Side and the Cold Valve is on the Hot Side. bridge lever valves with CO AND ACO Symbols

 

If your Tap is dripping where the Spout meets the Base you might need to replace your Bridge Lever Tap O Ring Kit 1506R
