    Re: Moen Diverter with Posi Temp Cartridge

    I would bet it's the handheld. I fought a Moen once and lost, 4 cartridge replacements later, I realized it was all the water in the handheld hose.

      Bogart thanks so much. I am having homeowner do a test. Question? Why only this handheld. Have installed many positemps with handheld and no issues. He bought the handheld from Depot. Again thanks so much.

        This whole thread amazes me. You guys jokin around or what? The 1st thing that should have been done after a suspected leak would be to remove the handheld. Thats plumbing 101 1st day type stuff.

          Master believe me it's all about being polite. I am very aware ! Was looking for something more specific but when u ask a question u give everyone a chance so give it a break unless u know it all.

            I almost know it all.....but I want to ask one question. Does the handheld you installed have a vaccum breaker just below the shower arm or ell connection?

                Well thats why its siphoning. The hoses that dont siphon have a vaccum breaker...or a leak A way for it to get air and break the siphon Very sharp indeed.

                    Yes it will drip out of both ends.....the lower end will drip more. Very sharp

                    next time try removing the entire hose..not just the head.

                      I have hooked up many this way, with homeowners purchasing handhelds from Depot with no issues. Working with a Moen Rep now . Thanks for the help though .

                        Regular head is now installed , still drips. Handheld is removed. Same problem. Somethings cannot be explained, even the master does not know sometimes.

                          I know you know but just put a nipple on it and gauge it.

                              I didn't read everything.

                              What is the exact setup you have in the tub/shower?

                              1 valve? Valve and diverter valve?

                              Thanks.

                                Look I understand what your saying and I dont even have the problem. Throw a gauge on it and see if it builds pressure...if it builds pressure you have a leak.
