Hello!

Am new to the forum.

Our kitchen basin mixer tap needs cartridges replacing, but I am having trouble identifying which would be the correct one. Details as follows:

Kitchen sink mixer tap
Blanco (discontinued model)
Old cartridge says Kugler L E 95+ on it
Photos attached (of the actual cartridges)
Dimensions are the same as in attached picture (from the Internet)

Any ideas which replacement I could use, and where to buy, I would be grateful. Need both hot and cold. (Ideally not too expensive as the tap is old and on its way out, and we will be replacing in a few months.)

Thank you!

Hi mrspipecleaner
Whilst the inserts on the internet are the same physical dimensions you may find the splined shaft is a different size. Provided you have Swiss needle files and are happy to do some adjustments you could try the ones shown.
Suggest you bite the bulled and fit a new tap.

Thank you. We'll be having the kitchen redone in a few months, so was hoping to find a temporary solution to the dripping in the meantime.
