    I just moved to a new home and need to replace a faulty shower mixer cartridge. I have tried the usual routes of contacting ShowerDoctor and a number of other parts suppliers as well as a few manufacturers directly but have drawn a complete blank.

    Can anyone help me identify the manufacturer of this shower / shower cartridge. The cartridge is unusual because of the long neck!

    Any help much appreciated.

    No numbers or markings at all unfortunately. I've added a few more photos and one showing behind the faceplate.

    I am afraid Showerdoctor cant identify it either. I removed the faceplate and have attached a few further photos.

    As you can see, the valve has been concreted in so it is going to be a much bigger job if I cant find the replacement cartridge!
