San Marco Mini Tap Valve 3308R



San Marco Mini Tap Valve 3308R

This valve with its 2 flat sides on the nut has now been replaced by a valve with a six sided nut called San Marco 3794R (SMR 3794R). This is a change by the manufacturer of your Tap.
If you are having difficulty removing the 3308R Valve, please see Valve Removal Tool 4013R.  The later version of this valve, 3794R can be removed with a size 14 Hex Key. The Tool 4013R will NOT fit the new 3794R valve. It is only required if difficulty removing the 3308R 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.  If your Tap is dripping where the Spout meets the Base you might need to replace your  O Ring Kit R.




San Marco Mini Tap Valve 3308R (3794R)

3794r and earlier 3308r

3794R and earlier 3308R (this is a manufacturer change). 3794R is also referred to as SP3794 and 3308R is also referred to as SP3308. These are just slightly different part numbers, but the SAME parts. SP stands for Spare Part.

Measurements: Height 38mm Diameter at thread:20mm, Splines:28, Nut Height: 9mm

Recently we have noticed that the new valve is a little stiffer to push the handle onto. We have reported this back to the manufacturer but they assure us that there have been no changes of any consequence and it is just to do with the tolerance on the machining of the valves. If this does occur we would simply recommend ensuring that your own handle is clear inside of any residual debris and that you push the handle on and off the new valve a few times to loosen the splines slightly. You won’t damage your handle. Tightening your valve: We would also recommend that you do NOT overtighten this valve. As a rule of thumb, tighten as far as physically possible by hand, and then tighten 1/4 turn with an adjustable spanner.

Parts might be modified by the manufacturers as part of their continual improvements. We cannot always guarantee that a part will fit an older version of a product. All spare parts that do not fit can be returned for a refund excluding shipping costs.
