Abca01004, Shower mixing when off and dumping water into cold pipe; can you help identify the hardware manufacturer?

My shower is constantly mixing hot and cold water and dumping into the cold pipe. It also won’t mix in enough hot water anymore. I also can’t figure out the manufacturer to find out what part I’d need to order and replace. Can you help identify who manufacturers the hardware and help me find what part I’d need to replace?

Here’s the symptoms:
- Mixer knob feels hot if turned to the left (we rarely use this shower since we bought the house a few years ago; this used to be the primary shower)
- we can’t get a hot shower but get scalding hot water in the sink
- a nearby faucet gets instantly hot water if the mixer is turned to the left (the bathroom is on the second floor)
- the hot water tank will not empty unless the water main is also shut off (we had to replace a heating element and the tank wouldn’t drain)

I’ve attached pictures of the hardware

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
