The 1212R Quarter Turn Kitchen Tap Valve
Brass Valve with ceramic discs. The Hot valve opens Clockwise. The Cold valve opens Anti-clockwise.
Measurements: Height 50mm / Diameter at thread 21mm / Splines 20 / Nut Height 8mm
- If your own valve has San Marco stamped on it and is the 1212R, order this valve 1212R with white seal here.
- If you have the Averon Tap or the Emporia Tap, then you need to order this Valve. You cannot use the 3984R valve as a replacement in your Tap.
- For other taps that have the 1212R valve specified in the Installation guide (other than the Emporia or Averon), there is a later Valve called 3984R which replaced the 1212R. If your valve has SMR on it , then you can order, if you wish, the 3984R which you will find here (and costs a little less).
Please note that ALL our valves specified here are Genuine and come from the manufacturer of your tap if your own valve has SMR stamped on it.
If your valve looks like this in the image below, then the brass bush is still attached and you will need to separate and reuse with the new valve, or if you cannot separate, then buy a new brass bush as well.
Here is the one threaded version of this valve (and depending on your tap model you might have either the earlier 1212R or the later 3819R. Depending on your Tap type, these valves can be interchangeable, UNLESS you also have a screw on Valve Cover, in which case you would always need the earlier, two threaded 1212R valve.

We ship from IRELAND so please see below for SHIPPING TIMES (by Post or Courier) before you place your Order to avoid any misunderstandings regarding estimated arrival date for your order once dispatched.
POST COST: For very small items: Screws, O Ring Kits, Aerators & some Bushes, we Post (£2/£3.50). This is NOT trackable. Where we Post, and you have been incorrectly charged Courier Rate £8/£10, we will refund the excess shipping charge to you. Some Parts cannot be posted e.g. Valves.
POST DELIVERY TIMES - Getting slower to GB post Brexit & pre Christmas:
ROI / NI: Approx 2 days delivery by Post in ROI and can vary in NI (please allow for at least 1 week)
Great Britain: Unfortunately there is no such thing as first / second class mail in Ireland. There is just 'standard' post. Our current experience is that it is taking approx 2-3 weeks for goods to arrive in Great Britain by Post. But we are having reports of it taking even longer than this. This is outside of our control and the backlog appears to be due to customs clearance for all items creating a backlog, slowing down all inward parcels and post from EU.
COURIER DELIVERY TIMES Track & Trace (£6/£8) & we make no profit from these charges): ROI / NI: Approx 2 days delivery by Fastways but it can occasionally take longer. Great Britain: Average shipping time with DPD is approx 1 week (but can take longer) .
ROI / NI: Approx 2 days delivery by Fastways but it can occasionally take longer.
Great Britain: Average shipping time with DPD is approx 1 week (but can take longer) .
Please note that delivery times with DPD UK for goods shipped from Ireland are slower than DPD within Great Britain. Brexit means that all goods coming into Great Britain have to clear Customs and this has added delays to the process. Our current experience is that goods shipped with DPD UK currently take approx 1 week to be delivered, but it can occasionally take longer. We can provide tracking numbers if required.

Not shipping to UK Offshore Islands:
We are currently only shipping to England, Scotland, Wales, NI and ROI. We are currently unable for logistical & customs reasons to ship to Channel Islands, Isle of Man or any Isles off mainland GB. All we can suggest is that you might be able to have the Order shipped to GB and from the there get it shipped on to your own address if it is one of the destinations that we currently do not ship to.
