    Greetings,
    I was having to replace the cartidge for yet a second time in a bit over a year.
    My question is this....This is the exact replacement cartridge.

    http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay...gId=10051&cmRelshp=req&rel=nofollow&cId=PDIO1 price around 40 dollars.

    I also see this one, and seems it might fit.

    This one is around 9 dollars.So my question is does the 40 dollar one cost that much because its a temp control one? and i could replace with a cheaper one and not car about the temp control part?
    Thanks in advance chopped

    You are confused. The $9 item is for a two handle lav or shower. The $40 positemp is for your single handle shower!
