Thermostatic cartridge failed again

I have a Bristan Tivoli 2 thermo mixer shower and 2yrs ago I replaced the cartridge body, its just failed again and @ £95 plus vat I'm thinking it may be time to buy something else.

I am about to have the bathroom walls tiled and have the shower pipework hidden so need to be sure of what mixer I buy as I wouldnt want to chop the tiles off later to change makes again.

I was thinking of maybe the wall plate from toolstation

And a bar thermo mixer for under £60 like this one so if it goes again I can just change the whole thing cheaper than the Bristan cart.

Any advice please?

Try phoning them first; I had a similar issue (hard water area) and they would have supplied a freebie replacement if it was less than five years old. (I made the 'five' bit up because I can't remember how long the warranty was but I know it's longer than you think.)

Give it a go!
Thanks but the last one 2yrs ago was a free one I got after complianing that they dont last long. Warranty is 5yrs yes but im outside that now.
