Standard Cartridges

Beginning with our original, tried-and-true 1200 model, our standard cartridges have evolved over time to deal with ever-changing water conditions while providing more consistent, smooth operation over the entire life of the cartridge. They have also come to enable the design of more compact, sleeker faucet styles prevalent in today's market. Standard cartridges are designed for faucets, Roman tubs and tubs/showers.
