    Just wondering if someone has the specifics for this cartridge. I can't find a brand name anywhere on the faucet.

    A picture of the faucet would be a big help.

    there are a million ceramics which look very much alike, but the thread on the outer end of the body should help. But how about some clues...photo of handle???

    faucet

    PP does not have a short stem with outside threads for the trim ring. The "fine" splining could be Kohler or Grohe.

    Thanks all for the responses. Really appreciate the help.

    Faucet photos attached. These photos were shot on my phone - the quality shows.

    Alot of those stems will interchange between brands. Measure it wil a caliper and match it up. Its not a grohe stem like I have in stock.......They all have clips below the splines. There are so many cheap knock offs it can be hard to tell from looks.
