I have a Franke Davos mixer tap which is dripping. Can you please advise me which discs/washers I need to purchase please?
1. Tap is dripping from the Spout
If your Davos Tap is dripping from the spout then it is most likely that you need to change the valves (one or both) and / or the brass bush ring (but usually its just the valve) hot or cold.
We only stock the Franke Davos Tap spare parts ‘currently’ being used in the manufacture of the Davos Tap and the Davos J Tap, and as per the current technical spec. 1427R
Here are the measurements of the Valve that we stock:
- Length of Valve from top to bottom (brass) 54mm
- Diameter at thread: 22mm
- Number of splines: 28
- Nut (below splines) Height: 8mm
If your valve appears to be wider than ours but all measurements tally except diameter, just make sure that you have removed the brass bush. For more information on removing the brass bush, see here.
Here is the link for the Davos Valve
Both the Franke Davos and the Franke Davos J take the same valve in the current tech spec.
2. Dripping where Spout meets Base
If it is dripping where the spout meets the base then it is most likely that you need to replace the O Rings.
