Rated 5 out of 5 by Get it for free from Moen This replacement cartridge is super easy to install as long as you coat the lubricant that comes in the kit. I didn't use any removal kit. Just pried it out slowing using screwdrivers. Make sure the cartridge is in off position (no whole seen from the top) and put the clip in as well, otherwise the strong water will blow it out and you'll have a geyser in your house. Btw, they're part of Moen lifetime warranty so you can get them for free from them (i wasn't asked any receipt). November 20, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Work as advertised... A valve, is a valve, is a valve - so long as it's decent quality (which this one is). You will need a special "socket wrench" to remove the old one and install the new - but, the next time you (or someone you know) needs it, you have it - it fits a variety of shower valves.. Also, HEED THE WARNING about little parts popping out and disappearing down the drain. Do yourself a favor - plug, or put a cover over the drain and save yourself a lot of grief. October 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by QUALITY repair part Installing the faucet repair cartridge was an excellent experience. The part was easily installed as the result of the high quality. In the past, I've tried using a "Knock-Off" brand (Ace is the place) which had unacceptable quality and had to be returned. Home Depot stocks the Original Equipment Moen brand. September 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy OEM parts Shower was leaking. Went to local Home Depot and bought 3rd party replacement cartridge. Did not fix leak. After reading reviews on the other brand replacement cartridge I was not the only one having same issue. I did return part and had to dive to another Home Depot to get get a moen oem cartridge. Leak stop. So if you have moen buy moen. Don't buy off brand to save a few dollars. May 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Changing cartridge Before changing the cartridge, strongly suggest watching u-tube videos that show how to remove the old cartridge. Also, highly recommend buying the $15 Moen cartridge removal tool and watch the applicable u-tube video. The directions on the back of the package aren't very good. After this, actually removing and installing the cartridge was very, very easy and everything works great. Home Depot price was also good - Ferguson Plumbing charged about $58 with tax - however, they did have more advice to relate. If you aren't sure you have a Moen faucet, look inside the handle. The single lever Moen faucet that doesn't require pulling initially to turn it on - takes the 1222 cartridge - but you'll easily see once you remove the old one. April 23, 2011
