    Hi,
    No, I haven't, and this might not help! :)

    But it looks like you have all the information you need there!

    Is there anything in particular you wanted to know?

    Personally, I have found it much easier to take the cartridge out and measure it properly to find a replacement.

    However, as many on here will testify, often taking the cartridge out and leaving it to soak in some descaler, will bring it back to life! :)

    Thanks just wondered if the is usually something to hold back on from above to remove the cartridge. And if they usually come out ok. Is around 18 years old.

    I would have a go and see what happens!

    After 18 years they may be a bit crudded up though.
    A liberal soaking of WD40 may help.

    And although I can't vouch for the quality, similar replacements are available for around £70. Not cheap, but worth it to save hassle?

    EDIT: maybe not, this one doesn't have a pop-up waste and the reviews aren't the best!

    Good luck :)

    The said tap is around £500 in total, Hansgrohe.

    Are most 3 tap hole taps the same pipe centres. 200mm between the taps with the spout in the middle?
