Hi everybody,

I have a vintage Grohe shower mixer, and am hoping to replace the handle/mixer/cartridge with a modern version.

Is it possible to do so without removing the actual valve; eg are there any newer style handle/mixer/cartridges from Grohe that will fit this valve? Mixer certainly needs to be replaced as it is leaking but also hoping to update the fixture. Hoping to avoid tile work if at all possible.

Thanks!

Well, the good news is that the cartridge is readily available along with the handle and trim.

I do not know if it has the mandatory anti-scald tech of newer stuff, so, while you are allowed to repair it, you may not be able to replace it if it doesn't.

It's likely that other trim will fit the main valve body...a call to Grohe during working hours should resolve that.
