Signs the Thermostatic Cartridge Requires Replacement Concealed or exposed shower mixer valves give telltale signs that the screw thermostatic cartridge is in its last legs.

A mixer shower, whether exposed or concealed, gives a greater amount of water flow compared to electric showers. A good flow rate is considered to be around 15 liters per minute while 10 liters per minute is deemed poor. Scale and dirt can lodge in the filters of the cartridge. And since water passes through the screw thermostatic cartridge, it can hinder the free flow of water and negatively affect the flow rate.
