    Default Bathroom faucet stem make from pic

    I have this faucet stem that I need to replace (both hot and cold actually). And the local plumbing experts can source the maker of it.

    I was hoping someone on here might.

    Thx.

    Well, I can't put my finger on it. A picture of the handles would help.

    Nice pic. Unfortunately, you still have me stumped. The stem is ceramic disc, which means it is not in the "ancient" category. The handles could be a lot of things. The spout looks like an old style, but matches the handles.

    I have poured through all the resources I can find. Let's hope one of the REALLY old guys can help us out ( I just went on medicare this week, so I am a youngster on here!). That ought to tic someone off!

    It's not a Kohler. That one is narrowed out.

    Wondering if the center stem piece itself can be replaced. I can remove the rubber cap on the end and pull the ceramic section and stem piece all the way out.

    I think this work was done in the early '1990s based on when I know previous owners had remodeled the condo and the history of the house as a whole.

    Doesn't help either that they caulked the whole assembly into the hole either. Since that label *might* have some interesting info on it... like who made it.

    Default stem

    The fact that it has both outside threads for one type of escutcheon and a threaded nipple for another, implies that it is a company that uses one stem for a variety of faucet types, which eliminates most of the major brands, since they would have stems with one method or the other depending on which type of escutcheon they are using for the faucet..
