Faucet cartridge

Need help trying to locate this cartridge. Thanks

This is a DELTA shower cartridge. The blue color is a key to the model. Readily available at Home Depot. Here is how to replace:

Take your original with you. If you hae trouble, I have found the DELTA customer service people to be extremely helpful. Just give them a call: (800) 864-2555

GOOD LUCK .... and if the hot/cold does not work correctly, you installed the cartridge upside down. Remove it, rotate it, reinstall. Easy mistake to do. :D

Thanks so much for taking a look. The cartridge has numbers on side 010804 if that means anything

I went to Home Depot & Lowes to see if they could assist along with two plumbing supply shops.

I attached the faucet--it is not completely together as cartridge is out

Neal--how did you find it? It really does look like the same cartridge. I will contact them tomorrow

I did a google image seach for fauset cartridge. The trick is to prove it is the right one before you order it. Expensive!!

Neal, I found the brand of the faucet through the site you provided: La Torre /Cascade and the model is Tower Tech. I still cannot figure out how to do google image search so that is my next project. The pictures really helped you and me but plumber thought I was crazy to ask him to send me a photo of what he took and did not want photo of faucet for his search.

After waiting for two weeks for plumber, Greg of Premier plumbing in Portland to call me back, I can call him to tell him...

Thanks Lyndia

Nealtw, if you can consistently go from a complex image to a verbal identifier, you need to start charging!
Real money!
And you can quit your day job! :p

Wuzzat: I'm in Canada, our money is real.:D

Lyndia; When you go to google, top of page says search, images, maps, etc, just click on images.
