  • moen shower valve, single handle

    How do I figure which Model I have ? Must be 10 years old. Do I need a cartridge puller?
    It's adding a little cold water at shower start.
    I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

    tool, there are basically 2 styles of the moen shower cartridge. the 1200 brass and 1225 plastic magnum are non pressure balancing and are approx 3/4'' in diameter.

    the pressure balance one is about 1.25'' diameter and has the balancing spool inside the cartridge.

    mark just replaced one in vegas at his house. $40.00 from depot

    if it's a plastic cartridge that's there, just pliers. if it's a brass one, usually a puller. 10 years is probably a pressure balance unit.
    if it's got volume control it's a standard cartridge.

        The pressure balance cartridge is the Moen "posi-temp" #1222. Free from Moen (in Canada anyway).
