  • Frequently Asked Questions: Gainsborough 98-95605161

    Question: I think the cartridge in my Gainsborough shower is about to give in, but having second thoughts as to buying the cartridge now. I see you only have 3 left in stock. Will I be able to repair my shower if this obsolete cartridge runs out of stock?
    Answer: If your Gainsborough shower is beginning to show signs of thermostatic cartridge problems, it may be best to change the spare part immediately. The problem might grow worse if left unattended.

    Question: Why do shower cartridges fail?
    Answer: Thermostatic shower cartridges, such as the Gainsborough 98-95605161, fail due to a number of reasons. One reason is poor water quality (i.e. hard water) where, over time, minerals can harden around the cartridge and clogs it. Another reason is the usual wearing out of the cartridge’s rubber parts (i.e. O-rings or seals).
