“Standard Nu Seal” Tub Shower
Okay, sometime in the late 1950’s, Standard decided to use only one stem design in most all of their
fixtures. They called it the “Nu-Seal”, and it is used in tub-shower applications, as well as Lavatory and Kitchen. This style was common
all the way up until the early 1970’s. Yes, the same cartridge is used in all those applications. There is an early version that used a bibb
washer rather than the “top hat” seal pictured at left, but this one will replace both styles. If both handles turn the same direction when
opening, you will need two “hot” cartridges, if they open in opposite directions, you will need one each of hot and cold.
