    Please help! We removed the cartridge from our tub/shower last night, it was leaking through our first story ceiling. There is no model name or number anywhere and I need to replace the cartridge. Its an older, single handle. Any ideas? Picture below. Thank you!

    That may be a Price Pfister Avante

    Thank you Terry. I dont think its an Avanti, just by looking at pictures online. The Avanti has a raised center to the knob, ours is flat. But, the cartridge looks identical (although pictures online show it in black and ours is white).

    Do you think I could buy the Avanti cartridge and use it, even if our model is not Avanti? Any other ideas what model it could be?

    Thanks, I am closer!!!

    It looks like Avante to me too.

    There is no doubt about it being an Avante stem, regardless of what the handle looks like.
