Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Spud
NO

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

Asked by: Brent
I had a different experience than I think has been mentioned before. My cartridge was *really* stuck. I had tried the WD40 and rocking clock-wise and counter clockwise with no initial success. However after repeating this WD40 and rocking (with a lot of force) for about 1 hour I did start to make some progress. I could hear "cracking" sounds inside of the valve. After I finally got the cartridge out, I think it's pretty clear that it was being held in the brass valve body because the gaskets got detached and stuck into the inlet or outlet ports. To get the cartridge out, I was basically shedding the gaskets with the rocking motion. See the picture.

does the new cartridge come with the plastic removal device

Asked by: ru4racn
Yes, but similar to another answer - the plastic piece does little good if your existing cartridge is old and the water is hard - buy the moen cartridge remove tool, it costs about $40 dollars, but well worth it.

Posi-Temp Pressure Balanced Shower Cartridge is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 923.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to replace We visited two Home Depot stores to find this product. We needed the "puller" ($15) because the old one was stuck in there pretty good. We couldn't find the shutoff valve for the shower, so had to shut down the entire house before we ran to the store to purchase. Moen has two major mixer valves, the 1225 and the 1222. We had the 1222, but make sure you know which one you have before you go to the store or order. I forgot to pay attention to the order I took items apart, so make sure to watch the utube videos online. It is a pretty expensive part, but once I figured out how to take it apart it was easy to install. The only difficult part was removing the old one. I've heard these things need to be replaced if they aren't used very often. The instructions with the package were pretty good with pictures, but I still preferred the online videos. Good luck! I had a good time and now have a working shower!

I pulled the old cartridge from my shower and the model number matched the 1222. After one day of struggling to get the retaining clip back on and watching about a million Youtube videos I realized that new cartridge was a bit longer than the old cartridge so I called Moen who at first insisted that cartridges were identical and only relented after I sent them pictures. They then insisted that the new cartridge would still fit. No way, I tell them. Then after about 15 minutes on hold customer service at Moen tells that I need to file the new cartridge down so it would work. The only other solution they had was to put in a new cartridge housing. Just for kicks, I cleaned the old cartridge put in back in and the shower no longer seems to be dripping, so at least I got that going for me. I'll try and return the new cartridge but I'm doubtful Home Depot will give me my money back. My shower, by the way, was installed in 2008.

Removing the existing cartridge was a bit of a chore, but after watching the video online and using the helpful loosening tool that came with the cartridge was quick and easy. Make sure you read the instructions VERY CAREFULLY when installing the new one because you can forget an important step that changes how the valve works and it won't shut off properly. Once installed, the operation of the shower handle was so light and easy with just a finger compared to before. Overall, easy to replace and install a new one!

I looked thru the reviews for the Jamco and this one and did not want to take the risk of buying the Jamco that's 10 dollars cheaper and then have it failed a few months down the road also did not want to buy the o-ring replace parts for the old one. So I bought it.The old could not be saved as I wanted to rebuild it and save it but it was stuck I had to put lots of muscle to it..thought I was going to o have to pull the valve. In any case the original works awesome no more leaks and more smooth operation.

I wasn't even sure what Moen model shower my lady had at her house, where she had a dripping shower faucet, when the handle was in the fully shutoff position. But believed this to be the correct cartridge, fortunately it was. Forums and the Moen installation video made the process easier. Paired with the Danco Cartridge Removal Tool ($13 which I strongly encourage for easier removal of the old cartridge with less of a chance of breaking existing plumbing) it really made the job for my first shower cartridge replacement, relatively easier for me being pretty novice. Though I did remove a cartridge from a kitchen sink before, which helped me identify the fix. Principle was the same. Didn't have to shut my water heater off, just where the water line came into the house from the outside. Now the Moen shower handle turns with ease and no more dripping/wasting water.

My son broke the handle, damaged it, and water was everywhere. On a Sunday night plumbers wanted $275 to come out and shut of the water. Monday they would come back @ $250 plus $100 for part. What? For less than $50, my husband replaced it in 5 minutes with no problems since. Thank you Moen!
