About This Product

This OEM (original equipment manufacturer) universal pressure balance cartridge 974-042 can be used with 0X8/JX8/VB8/JV8 deep casting valves. The cartridge has a ceramic disc valve and can be used with the OX8 series tub and shower trim. This cartridge is equipped with an Integrated Temperature Limit Stop and Forever Seal - advanced ceramic disc valve technology with a never leak guarantee. If your faucet leaks from the tub spout when it is turned off, then consider replacing your faucet cartridge. Fix the leak and replace the cartridge instead of replacing the entire faucet.

Q:Will this fit Pfister Model 48522-0100

Answer This Question

A:  No. I have the same model and called Pfister. They advised me that 974-5299 was the replacement cartridge. They are sending one for free. However 974-321 looks very similar and may be a dupe. YMMV.

    Turning is a lot smoother, hot and cold dial/adjustment is more accurate. I'm not sure why I bought this if Pfister has lifetime warranty.

    Fit as expected. Fixed a leak I had in a bathtub for 3 years. Easy to do. Also, I removed the hot water limit.

    This was the 2nd or 3rd time I’ve had to replace these. They work fine for a while but need replaced after a few years. I’d prefer an upgrade to a unit not 100% plastic.

    It was the right one for a replacement of an old valve

    This cartridge failed to work in my Pgister shower. It was about 1/8 inch short.
