How to Remove a Thermostatic Cartridge From a Tap?

Postby Roady27 » Fri Jun 21, 2019 11:41 am

Does anyone know how I remove this screwed in cartridge? It appears to need a tool with 3 lugs but I can’t find one anywhere!

Afternoon Roady. I don't know if you've managed to remove the cartridge as of yet. The cartridge you have is the following from Di Vapor:

AS you've probably figured out, the part holding the cartridge in with 3 lugs is a retaining ring and this will unscrew anti-clockwise. You might need to improvise as I don't know what specific tool this is.
