Hi guys,

I have a thermostatic shower which now only runs very hot (too hot to use). I understand that this may be down to a failed cartridge?

I’m told that if I can find a replacement cartridge this will likely fix the issue and avoid having to replace the whole shower.

Can anyone recognise this from the photo, or give guidance as to what model it might be?





Also, would a good plumber be able to remove the existing cartridge, and if the problem source a new one using the removed one as reference?

Thank you in advance for this or any other advice.


Robin

Sorry CBW1982. I did not answer your question.
Is it still hot if you turn to full cold?

Yes, when the setting is set to fully cold it is very hot. In fact changing the temperature dial has no effect on the shower temperature. It is always too hot to shower whatever the setting.

It looks like a Gainsborough shower. I have one and the thermostat is playing up too. I can’t get it to cold in the summer and in winter, it is barely hot enough. Any suggestions?

UPDATE - The part was Ultra SASF2-M Thermostatic Cartridge, was correct and a plumber fitted it this morning, showing me that the old cartridge/washers were very worn.

Ironically/unfortunately the water pressure was off during the day due to a water main burst (now repaired) and having just tested the shower, it runs fully hot whatever the setting on the replaced unit :(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

The plumber will be coming back tomorrow to re-investigate. Any ideas on next steps welcome ;)
