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...

The previous cartridge (Moen #1222) had to be replaced within 11 months (within warranty period). Had to buy the replacement as the leak was approximately 1 gallon per hour. Moen would only replace the defective cartridge with a new one, not credit me for the cost of the replacement (@ $40 plus tax). So - its better to waste 24 gallons a day for however many days it would take to receive the replacement than just issue a credit. I have both receipts to prove the purchases but they didn't care. Will not be buying Moen products of any sort in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very short lifespan Great quality, looks very strong, but we shower everyday and it only lasted us just a little over a year. 39 dollars isnt too much of a maintenance but the durability is so terrible that I expected this to last longer. Overall. works great when its working, once it starts to get harder to turn the knob then be ready to have a new one ready for this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cartridge good. Tool not so much. The replacement part is high quality and worked just fine. However, the tool that is provided with the kit really isn't up to the task. I had to be so careful not to break it while removing the old cartridge. Other reviews mention the same thing so just take plenty of time rocking the old cartridge clockwise and counter clockwise to loosen it up otherwise the tool will break.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough out, easy in Go online to find all the ways to get the old cartridge out--you'll need 'em. Key is to rotate left/right to loosen. But once the old out, the new goes in w/out hassle and, for me at least, worked like a charm. Relieved to find leak/drip had not eroded a channel in the base metal.

Bought this replacement and it worked fine but after 4 month, its leaking again. Moen is the worst brand you can buy. Probably will pay a plumber to replace the it and change it to a two handle faucet.

The new Moen Posi-Temp Pressure Balanced Shower Cartridge was a perfect fit. The cartridge comes with a tube of plumbers grease to put on the gaskets, which is convenient. The cartridge restored hot water to our tub and immensely helped the water pressure to the shower. I had previously bought the universal type cartridge sold by H.D. and that only lasted about 6 months. Now they have the actual Moen brand and it seems to deliver more water pressure than the universally made ones. We are 2 months in to the new cartridge and my wife can't be happier. I would offer a bit of advice, make sure to buy the "puller" when replacing this type of cartridge. The cartridges tend to stick and the puller makes it quite a bit easier to remove.
