Valve and Vernier Insert Changing Procedure for the Franke Olympus  Mixer Tap.

(For ease of use this guide shows only 2 handles but the procedure is the same for all 3 handles of your tap)

It should be an easy matter to change the Valve and Vernier Insert if you follow these simple instructions and refer to the diagram below.

1) Turn off the water supplies to the mixer tap. Place plug in to waste to prevent loss of small pieces.

2) Pull the handle firmly towards you, and also at the same time slightly upwards to remove the handle from the tap



3)  The Vernier Insert B may be left inside the Handle A or remain on the Valve C. Remove and replace if damaged.

5) Please go to stage 9 if replacing the Vernier Insert B only.


Note: When changing valves note that two valves can be used. One valve has a grove around which represents the HOT valve, whilst the COLD valve is plain (See diagram). Before removing the valve the mixer, check that the valve supplied is a suitable replacement.

7) Unscrew Valve C using a 17mm or adjustable spanner.

8) Fit new Valve C to body and tighten firmly. Recommended torque setting 15Nm.

9) Slide Vernier Insert B onto Valve C.

10) Slide Handle A onto Vernier Insert B, just enough to see if it is correctly orientated.

11) To get the exact alignment with the other handle on the tap it may be necessary to remove the Vernier Insert C and turn a few splines until correct alignment can be achieved.

12) Once alignment has been achieved the Handle A can now be pushed back over Vernier Insert B..

14) Your tap should now be ready for use, turn on supply and check carefully for any leaks.
