Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kimbo cartridge wore out in less than 1 1/2 year with one person use
The trim kit was installed by the bathroom remodel person who highly recommended Moentrol products, stating the cartridges are so easy to change. I had no idea what he was referring to but figured with just me using the bathroom, it wouldn't need done that often. Wrong. In less than 18 months, the bath faucet began dripping. It was no little drip, buckets were filling so fast that I now have to remove the access panel to shut the water lines off when I am done showering. I am very angry. How often would a family have to change their cartridge?? I cannot believe most families would find this acceptable. This is just a gimmick to get more money from the consumer. And I just purchased a Moen sink & faucet for the kitchen that hasn't been installed yet. So I am wondering if I shouldn't return the faucet at least and try to find the old fashioned kind that doesn't dime you to death....

This might have worked well but it wasn't threaded, so it couldn't be installed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jimihal Inferior product, inflated price
In wanting to replace the shower faucet hardware in our stand-up shower in our Master Bathroom, I had wanted to replace the original h/w with Kohler, a brand that I have had great success with and find their products to be of very high quality in general.
However, given that the inside the wall cartridge was Moen, I essentially HAD to replace the faucet h/w with another Moen product, unless of course I wanted to cut a hole in the opposing wall and replace the entire infrastructure. There was nothing wrong with the cartridge, just the fact that the faucet metal was peeling.
So I replaced the Moen h/w, which was $100 more expensive than the equivalent Kohler h/w, and frankly the quality and even the design doesn't come close. I ended up replacing the Moen showered that came with the h/w, and replaced that with a Kohler showered, which produces a far greater shower experience than the Moen showered did.
I don't understand how Moen can get away charging so much more for their inferior products, unless they are confident that so many builders use their stuff and then the homeowners are basically "stuck" to replace like for like, especially when some infrastructure work is involved.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tracy Fits in thicker walls as well as well as thin.
Comes with an adapter for thicker walls, which the plumber would have found helpful if he'd noticed. Perfect fit for the Moen faucet.

Converting from traditional 2 handles to a valve at standing height. The Temp. needed to be adjusted warmer. Easy adjustment. Solid feel when turning the valve handle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by solseeker1 Solidly built, smooth operation
This brass valve maintains temperature of water even when someone else in the house flushes the toilet. The instructions for installation are clear and there are videos available on U-Tube that can also be helpful. The one I bought has fittings for soldering brass piping to the ports. You can also get it with threaded fittings or barbed for direct connection with the modern PEX type piping. Ask your plumber which one would be best for you before you buy. My plumber used the copper piping to make a secure mounting before connecting the PEX pipes. Follow the instructions to flush the lines after installation to save the cartridge.

The total experience was great, from speaking to customer service in finding the right valve to receiving it within a couple days, even before it was to arrive. Furthermore, we know from experience that Moen carries a reliable product that delivers years of service. Moen stands behind their products so it something were to go wrong, they will make it right; although we have never had this problem. Once we received the valve it was soldered efficiently and quickly. The value comes with a scald free security that water can't be turned on to hot. The mechanics of the value bring smooth operation that one can place the knob/handle in the exact spot for consistency of comfortable and relaxing shower that bring vitality in the morning and relaxation for the evening.
