 tub and shower valve ID?
Author: 666531 (WI)

Does anyone know what type of tub and shower valve has a pressure balance cartridge that is similar to a kohler's in appearance and has cones and springs that are similar to delta's?

The shower head says Price Pfister

Got a pic? I don’t know much about Price Pfister. If the shower head says Price Pfister then most likely it is but there should be something on the valve or escution stating brand.

The Delta 1300/1400 and 1500/1700 used balancing cartridges, and had seats and springs underneath for the on/off function. You could try the website for an exploded diagram or parts pics.

Post a pic of it all together! We can speculate on what it is using that info. Its more than we have right now.

Usually manufactures proudly display their names on anything that will hold it. I question fixture that is nameless because they are usually poorly made. This may not be the case for you but I still suspect it.

If it were a Delta or Kohler you would see their names clearly.

Many of the Kohler line does not say Kohler on it as well as Am Std. There are also many high end units that say nothing Harrington for instance. It just makes our job more fun. Post a pic and see if it is recognized.
