ID the faucet/cartridge or "how to replace the faucet"

Hi Guys,

I have a bathtub faucet, single handle. The faucet is leaking and I cant find the brand, so cant find proper cartridge. so

Local plumbing shop and homedepot were not able to find out what brand this is and could not find the replacement either

1.) pls. help me ID this faucet and cartridge
2.) also this is very old, so if anyone knows how to replace this without opening the wall behind (that is family room) , would also help me.


here are the pics.

I'm surprised the plumbing shop could not match up your cartridge.
Even if they did not have one in stock they should have a book with actual sized pics to identify what you have.
Should try a store with people who know about these parts.

There is no way to replace the valve without opening either wall.

I went to general plumbing supplies (gps) , which is well known store for this kind of plumbing stuff.. I showed them the actual cartridge.. then I tried homedepot & laws with no luck..

I am in central nj, if you know a good shop I would love to try it, and a plumber(recommendation?) who can fix this. opening wall is last option...

Looks like a Delta faucet. Try a different plumbing supply.

We don't make trade recommendations in the forums. You could check with Angies list or a friend/neighbor.

Did the fellow in the plumbing store look at it and say he didn't know what would replace it or did he open his suppliers catalog and make a direct comparison against the images shown???

I am no plumber by any stretch but have many different and odd fixtures in my workplace.
It would be unusual to not be able to match it with the correct one from a plumbing supplier catalog.

While searching for another shower valve for a different member I came across your cartridge. It looks like a Sterling faucet. Repair Parts and Kit 00A5013. You can search using that kit part number. I found the same kit from $12-$40.


Danco 88421 replacement kit at Lowes and the Depot.

Thank you PJMax.

I was able to find a good plumber and he was able to replace this very old sterling diverter/faucet and put a new delta one. so we are good now. thanks everyone for your assistance.
