    Hi I have an aqualisa aquarian e99 shower and need to replace the cartridge as it drips. My question is, does anyone know how it comes apart? Thank-you

    pull the on/off and temp controls off and the plastic housing just splits long ways across the middle, undo the 3? screws and the whole cartridge pulls off the pipes.

    Ok thank-you. Do I have to have the pump on to drain down?

    no just isolate the pump, you should have valves on the pump for this, turn on the shower to make sure the water has stopped before you start dismantling the cartridge.
