Answer: 
Home depot does have the U clip for this moen cartridge. You can typically reuse the old one since it usually isn't damaged. But if there is any sign of wear, I'd replace it. Without that U clip, the whole stem can shoot out. The 1225 kit does NOT come with the U clip.
I manage apartment units and most of our valves are 1225.

Answer: 
The 1225 cartridge is adjustable and others probably are also. The directions on how to do this is usually included with the cartridge, but are also probably available on the Web. You can adjust the cartridge even after is has been installed.

Answer: 
You have have set the handle pivot retainer (white plastic ring that handle assembly swivels on) in reverse position. Note that the higher rim on one side of the part. It needs to face toward you so that handle assembly pivots on the lower rim.

Answer: 
I had the same problem with my shower cartridge originally and realized I had inserted it wrong. I had to pull mine out an spin it clockwise and re-insert it and everything worked. Pull it back out and take a look at the base of the cartridge when you spin the stem and it should help you figure out which way to insert it.

Hello Ralph. Thank you so much for your interest in Moen products. The 1225 cartridge is designed so the handle pulls out to turn on the water. Since the handle you are describing rotates to turn on the water then you probably are referring to a different cartridge.

Answer: 
It seems that the 1225b has a brass body, and the 1225 is plastic....otherwise they are the same.
Some claim the brass gets calcium build up and tend to get stuck more than the plastic version

Answer: 
"The 1225 will work smoother longer, but it will start leaking a lot sooner. The brass one will last "forever" but eventually it will pull so hard you will want to change it."

Hello Hedges. Thank you so much for your interest in Moen products. The difference between the Moen Magnum 1225 and 1200 cartridges is the 1200 is an all brass cartridge. The 1200 is the original single handle cartridge and it was replaced with the 1225 around the late 80’s. They are interchangeable.

Single-Handle Replacement Cartridge is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 150.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Fix For Leaks Over the past 30 years, I’ve retrofitted many faucets with Moen and choose them for new construction. The faucets are durable and are easy to service. I bought a couple of 1225 cartridges to fix my occasionally leaking showers that use the 3520 Moentrol valve. Replacement went smoothly except the removal tool had a plastic shoulder that kept it from seating onto the 3520 valve body. Using a utility knife, I modified the tool and the removal/reinstall went quickly after that. Although not absolutely necessary, I apply some silicone valve grease to the cartridge before installing it. Makes for smoother installation and operation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase The replacement part was exactly same as old part. Good quality Moen part. Very easy to install and came with plastic part to take out old one. Installation instructions could be better, but thanks to You Tube I found the video on installing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still fits a 30 year old faucet Was pleased and surprised I could find a valve that would fit the 30+ year old Moen installation. Fit well and works well - no leaks or trouble. M y only complaint is the included installation instructions are horrible. They are meant to apply to about 6 languages and use as few words as possible, relying on line drawings to show the installation. I am an experienced DIYer and threw them away after 5 minutes of trying to make sense out of a bunch of cartoon drawings. The installation works but still needs to be tweaked as the hot and cold aren't split well and the valve needs to be turned some. Happy the repair was fairly quick and easy but disappointed Moen couldn't put more time into the installation instructions so I could do it right the first time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Moen Single Handle Replacement Cartridge Had a drip from shower/tub faucet, knew it was a cartridge style assembly. Googled Moen faucet repair for directions on how to replace and was able to disassemble faucet handle and remove cartridge. Failed cartridge was not a Moen piece, the new Moen cartridge appears to be made of better materials and with a better finish. The Moen replacement cartridge was easy to install and worked perfectly. 4 stars for superior quality, good instructions and ease of install.

Removed old stuck cartridge by using liberal squirts of WD40 and letting it penetrate for a while. Had to use a large but good fitting wrench on the supplied plastic removal tool in order to loosen the stuck cartridge then was able to pull the entire assembly out in one piece. Pay attention to the orientation of the stem in order to have the hot water stay on the left as standard when inserting the new cartridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moen 1225 Valve Very well built valve. Hard water will cause calcification over time but the first one lasted about 25 years so I expect this one will also last a long time. I recommend adding plumbers grease to the inside and outside to help lubricate the seals. I don't recommend the Danco 1225 replacement because it has a design flaw that tears one of the O-rings and that one only lasted 6 months. I hope this helps.

In order for the cartridge to seat all the way in the housing I had to file off the back little lip. I matched up the old cartridge with the new and the new was just that one 1/16th of an inch longer. When I was done making the adjustment the new cartridge fit in the housing and I was able to install the "U" clip. I was not able to install the "U" clip before I adjusted the cartridge.
