    I need a replacement kitchen reich mixer tap on my hymer. Does anyone know the size of tap ie ? mm bore. I also have a question regarding my submersible water pump. It appears to have 2 pumps..one looks broken...are they supposed to supply different areas ????

    here are some pics

    Looks to me as though the second one is actually the water level ?

    refering to mixing tap , changed mine , Reich tap comes in 33mm diameter for my B584, think there is a 27mm bore also , To be sure , you can measure the bore from underneath tap once you remove the drawer. There is a step by step guide at the HYmer owner site. Hope it helps

    Hi, sorry cant help, but I do know that Hymers have a micro switch on the taps, maybe there is nothing wrong with your pump or the actual tap. :Doh:

    Someone will be along soon with the right answer.:Wink: Just hold fire a bit, before ripping everything out !!!!!! :Rofl1: Bob.

    Not sure on the bore as I don't have a Hymer. I would however double check by measuring anyway. They are available from St Johns Cross. Reich Kama.
    Hope this helps.:Smile:

    Messy, think it will be much simpler to just replace the unit for what it cost , the other ends of the wire is connected to blade fitting underneath, It will be just a simple job for unscrewing the 27mm/33mm screw from under disconnect the two wires lift unit , put new one on join up wire (supplied with new unit) screw up That is it, make sure order right size bore tap

    Got new tap.....How on earth do you undo the old one . It seems to disappear up into the hole .... The connections are not the same either....Oh and the cupboard is about just over a foot wide to try and get to the tap....:Eeek:

    you cannot see it in the photo but just behind the red pipe (pic no 3) the brass long nut will have a screwdriver slot (big SD needed) or a long reach socket will be easier if you have one.The brass nut hold the silly horseshoe washer that holds the tap in place. Simply remove and reconnect the new taps not forgetting to put the new one piece nut over the pipes first so that you can tighten the taps
