I'm trying to identify the brand and model of a bathroom sink fixture so that I can replace the hot and cold cartridges. I've run the photos by some parts dealers and they couldn't find anything that matched. Anyone know where I can find cartridges to match this?

Take the stem cartridge in to a local plumbing supply shop, much better than pictures to try to match it up.

There are also a few good websites which list hundreds or maybe thousands of stems and cartridges, with pictures and key words to identify what they are.

Google search for “faucet stem identification chart” or “faucet cartridge identification chart”.

I'll post a picture later today. It still "works" but is leaky, so it's back in the sink until I find a replacement. I have run it by a couple of plumbing parts shops and they couldn't ID it. They seemed to have a hard time matching it because of the size of the knurled part at the top.

Go through that identification chart I linked to.

The chart groups by length of stem, also things like how many splines on the stem, etc.

Or check out other charts online.

Thanks for your help. I'm pretty sure I found it here:

I counted the splines at 30, and it seems there aren't many of those so it really narrowed it down.
