Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Gustav Another "Don't bother with this one, get the OEM" review.
I couldn't find the OEM Moen 1222 at the Home Depot closest to my house, so I picked this one up... What a mistake.
Installation was fairly basic if you've worked on any home plumbing, but after installing, I had a water hammer knock... After reading the reviews, I figured (hoped) it was because of the substandard quality or design of this product.
After replacing this one with the Moen replacement, the knock was gone... Go figure!
Unless you enjoy doing jobs twice, stay away from this!

Danco must have a bad batch with wrong dimensions for rubber gaskets. Removed old cartridge then cleaned out and lubricated faucet valve body, tried to install Danco replacement cartridge, it didn't fit, ruined the rubber gaskets. Frustrated went back bought another one and two danco gasket replacement kits. Second try, same thing, went to use rubber gasket kit, they don't even fit their own cartridge, Danco has nibs to hold gasket, the new rubber gasket in kit doesn't allow for this as they would only fit a moen OEM cartridge if they weren't oversized (to thick). Went to Menards to get Moen OEM replacement, and it fit perfect the way it should. 3 hours=Danco 5 minutes=moen

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Phycon Not exact fit for moen 1222
Had to make two trips to Home Depot. One to purchase, another to return. Then went to lowes. This part is slightly longer than the moen part and I couldn't get it to fit. Will never buy danco parts again!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by dk76 wasted my time and gas
i should have read the review first before i wasted my time and gas to find out this product does not deliver anuthing close to the moen 1222. it caused water hammering right after i installed it and the pin that secures the cartridge did not slide through without slighty bending the pin with a flat head screw driver to go through the bottom end of the pipe. everything was fine after returning the product as a defective item.... no water hammering and the pin slid through without effort. if i can get compensation for wasting my time and gas i would say please do....but please save your time and do not buy any DANCO posi-temp cartridge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by DIYRichard Just buy it...
I tried to go cheap and buy the kit (new O-rings/washers etc) but in the end had to buy the new cartridge...save yourself the trouble (and the $10 cost of the O-ring kit) and just buy the cartridge and be done with it...otherwise you may end up fixing it twice (like I did)...
