Does anyone know a little about the history of the MIXET brand?

When did they start? When were they acquired by Alsons, and when was the last year they made complete shower valves?

There are still a lot of OEM part available by Brasscraft ( also an Alsons company ). But it has been at least 5 years, I think, since I last saw a new valve.

I like to have the "straight dope" on issues like this, and as I look at it , I sort of know, but can't fill in the details!

The only thing that matters is they stopped making that valve (IMO HTE WORST SINGLE VALVE)--piece of crap JMO

Well, it was certainly a convenient business opportunity for the guy who came up with the NOMIX cartridge.

You hit the nail right on the head. These valves make me cringe!!! they are just about the biggest piece of junk installed anywhere.....they are right up there with Valley!!!

Plastic crap azz stems, VALLEY has a shower valve the replicates delta, they have 1.5" stubby stems in their shower valves, how the heck are you to get theis piece of plastic junk to stay, when the valve is behind tile and everything else? the seats and springs have some special plastic thing that sits in it, the rubber seat is so cheap, you get one chance at finding the hole, remember, the valve is set back behind tile, I have long fingers, still a pain !!!! you miss that hole and make the rubber bent, it won't work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JUNK.JUNK...............JUNK If you ever worked on a Valley shower valve, you understand.

I hate plastic stems! I just repaired a mixet valve, so cheap and the handle wobbles and everything was new!!!, crap! Price Pfister has a plastic stem, the Avante, crap also, had a customers break 2 weeks ago, it pulled all the way out, he had a mess until he shut the water off to the house.

Why do these things make it on the market!
