Mystery shower valve: Can anyone identify?? HELP!
4 Attachment(s)
I have a single handle shower fawcet with a scald guard ring. It drips a bit so I took it apart and took the cartridge, seals and springs to SLOWES and could not find a replacement (naturally the plumbing associate new exactly what he was doing). Their is no name anywhere on the fixture, handle etc. NOTHING! I have been to both of the home improvement places, and three independant plumbing supply places. The last guy a spoke with said "I have been in this buisiness for thirty years and have never seen one like that." He looked through parts books with me for an hour with no luck. We could not find a picture that matched.
As a temp fix, I cleaned the cartridge, stretched the springs a bit, and sanded down the mating surface of the seals for a flush fit. It's holding...for now.

So with that my freinds, I will post the pics I have and hopefully someone in cyberspace knows what I'm dealing with. Oh yeah, I am located in the Hampton roads area of Virginia. One plumber said that most supplies are "regional. "

Thanks for looking. Hope you can help.

Looks like Delta but I could be wrong.

There was no Delta in the books that looked like this.

Maybe If you call Delta and send them pics they can at least let ya know if it is one of theri's and parts if available. If you cant send digital pics then print em out and scan them then fax them
