PLEASE NOTE: We keep an adequate stock of these items, but sometimes we run out, these spares have to be re-supplied to us from Italy and as such can take as long as 7-10 days to arrive. This is the genuine article from Zucchetti Design of Italy.
Special Note for Cartridge Removal:
- When removing the old cartridge, double check that the housing does NOT still have an "o" ring from the previous cartridge left behind.
- Ensure that the cartridge housing is completely clean, free from debris, and scale free as well. If there is some scale build up in the housing ONLY use neat lemon juice to remove it, ensuring all trace of both scale and lemon juice are flush out completely BEFORE attempting to install new cartridge.
- When dismantling the tap handle from the old cartridge ensure that NO parts from the old cartridge have broken off. If they have REMOVE all old broken parts, clean thoroughly before re-assembly
- Please use the grey/blue cartridge install tool to ensure new cartridge is pushed fully home.
If the cartridge or the lever on top of it appears to be sitting too high up, and is stopping the flange from seating down properly
The cartridge is not oriented properly within the tap body – there is a small projecting pin on one side, which locates in a slot in the brass body
The sealing ‘O’ ring(s) from the old cartridge have remained inside the brass body, preventing the cartridge from seating down correctly
There is still the metal cap from the old cartridge stuck in the underside of the lever, stopping it from engaging correctly on the head of the new cartridge
I ordered two replacement parts for my Zucchetti tap, which arrived in perfect condition. As a novice at home repairs, I had trouble with the installation. I emailed Ed and he responded immediately. He figured out what I was doing wrong and gave me careful instructions. Great customer service! Thanks again!
