Customer Questions & Answers

The old valve is stuck, how do I get the old valve out?

Asked by: Anonymous
I used vise grip pliers, got a good bite and pulled it right out. Dont forget to pull the pin before tugging on the cartridge.

Does this cartridge come with the clip that holds it in the body of the valve?

Asked by: Anonymous
No. You have to buy it separate. I just used my old one though. If you're careful about getting the old one off, it works just fine.

does the new cartridge come with the plastic removal device

Asked by: ru4racn
It comes with a plastic to be able to turn the cartridge. There is a tool to help you remove it though...

Posi-Temp Pressure Balanced Shower Cartridge is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 236.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product, tough to get the old one out My old moen cartridge 1222 would only come out part way but i managed to get it out by keep squirting white vinegar (Moen's suggestion) onto the cartridge and workng the cartridge in and out many times, gripping first the brass shaft and then the cartridge itself with vice grips. When it finally came out after 10 minutes one of the rubber ovals had slipped off and the plastic back end of the cartridge was cracked so that was why it was so hard to get out. I read in another post that the cartridge puller only pulls the cartridge partly out so i didnt even buy one since the problem was getting the last three quarters out. I reassembled the faucet and its workng fine.

Before buying this $40 item (as of March 2017), you would be wise to check with Moen since they have a lifetime drip-free guarantee. My 1 yr old shower faucet started dripping, but by a week was flowing so fast (hot water) that I had to shut of hot water to bathroom. I was able to receive a replacement cartridge free of charge after contacting Moen via their website. They had great, fast service (still took about another week, though, to get it - so act fast if you are in need of your shower and water won't shut off!) I ended up returning the one I purchased from Home Depot without a problem, of course.

It had a piece of wood that probably got in there when the builders built our house. It worked perfectly. There are some good videos on youtube that show exactly how to install one of these. Don't forget to use the lubricant that comes with it to help the new valve go in. We used the cartridge puller from Home Depot too and that worked well. Be prepared with the possibility that you'll have to replace the escutcheon plate and handle. We found that the O-ring in the escutcheon plate was dissolved.

I had to replace this cartridge about 3 years ago, because my wife turned it off a little too forcefully. This time, it seemed that the cartridge was clogged, but after inspecting the old cartridge, I couldn't find what was restricting the flow. $60 dollars (with a special tool) later, I have somewhat (but not much) better flow. My house has decent water pressure, but this shower does not, and there seemingly is no way to increase it. If I had my druthers, I would ditch the Moen brand all togethere, but the plumbing that is installed IS NOT COMPATIBLE with any other brand. So, if I want better pressure in my shower, I will have to tear out the wall, and the pipes to braze a different valve body in. I had to buy the Moen core puller as not to damage the pipes like I almost did before. I'm not a big fan of requiring special tools in the name of proprietary profit. And I would probably be more forgiving if they didn't charge $43 for a $5 part.

I think my plumbers put it in wrong 2 years ago when I had them install my new shower head with some plumbing work. It was always stiff. Finally had a problem where it wouldn't shut off the water without working the handle a few times (felt like it was stripped and slipping). I figured it was the handle or the valve, cause I figured the cartridge would just cause leaking or blockage. Nope, replaced the cartridge (as instructions stated) and now it works flawlessly. The handle turns like butter, and shutoff and on are precise. Only tip is to make sure you pay attention to instructions for install. I bought the removal tool to go with it, more for peace of mind, and everything went smoothly. Probably can replace it easily without the tool, but I'm not a handy man and typically screw things up worse than how I find them, so bought the tool for piece of mind. No problems whatsoever and took me (once again, not a handy man) about 30 minutes from start to finish.

Always good to buy OEM, but this style tends to break more than the 1225(you can't just use the 1225. Gotta stick with what your valve is made for). Often times this will get stuck and you'll need a puller. the $13 puller will help after using the white piece that this package comes with to help loosen it. When putting it back in, I'd use a lot of the oil from the packet it comes with, or use your own 100% plumber's silicone grease. Make sure it's the right one made for stems and cartridges!! Some "plumber's grease" aren't made for rubber and it'll tighten up/dry out the rubber. This will help you put it in smoothly and remove it smoothly next time. The little packet that came with this was super watery and didn't do much. Step 1. remove handles, screws, plate, etc. Step 2. Shut off water and open faucets to drain water. Step 3. Remove clip on top Step 4. Wiggle the cartridge out. If tight, use the white adapter to try to loosen it. If it doesn't work, use a puller. Step 5. Once removed, check for broken pieces and check inside the valve to see if anything is stuck. Run your finger around and feel for sharp edges. Step 6. Add 100% silicone grease to the cartridge and slide in with the "HC" pointed up. insert it all the way and install clip. Step 7. Put everything back and test for leaks.

Our plumber put in a new shower handle cartridge (because of a leak) and it turns out to have been an NON original part. We lost 60 percent of the water pressure.... he kept saying it was fine and it was far from it. Ask you plumber if he uses OEM parts. I called MOEN & they sent a FREE cartridge (#1222) THAT SOLVED the problem. I now keep a spare MOEN BRAND on hand. Not going through not being able to rinse the soap/shampoo off/out! Glad HomeDepot is near by!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but there's better There is a brass version of this which is made for commercial use but you can also use it in your own home. It is almost double the price and you can only find it online. For those of you who do not want to go through one or two of these, which is the equivalent price of one brass version, go ahead and search for it online. For all others, this one should be good enough for a few years. There is not much you can do if this is the current cartridge your plumbing system uses. I strongly suggest 100% silicone grease and not just the little packet that comes with this cartridge. Make sure it is the right one for rubber washers and gaskets. At the bottom of this cartridge it may seem like it is missing a rubber washer but I'm not sure if that is true. The old ones I have removed did not have a rubber washer attached and it has been fine.
