SOURCE: Just installed a Moen 3867 hand held shower. There

Usually whenever you do any repairs on plumbing, you dislodge calcium from the inner surfaces of teh plumbing. Check to see if ther is a mesh filter in the inlet side of the head. and remove and clean it. otherwise you could remove it and use a vacuum yo try and remove any deposit that may be in it. If that is unsuccessful,
you can always return it, but always remember to open the fawcett and run it before installing the head.
This is an essential part of any plumbing job. Good luck

. If your local store refuse to replace it Moen will gladly do so with no problem.

They are good like that.

SOURCE: flow restrictors

Remove the shower head from the arm and look inside the connector on the showerhead. You should see a plastic or metal piece that will either unscrew or need to be pulled out with needle nose pliers. Once that's been removed the flow should be improved.

SOURCE: Our Plumbing Inspector has rejected the faucet due

plumbing code varies by area, so I don't think it's an issue with the company. they do have vacuum breakers 4 sale, though.

SOURCE: moen monticello shower control, remove handle

If your Posi-Temp has no water coming through the valve my first step would to replace the cartridge (Moen pn 1222). The valve as a simple one. Get the part first so you can ues the plastic tool that comes with it if you need to. Beneath the actual lever insert on the handle hub you will notice a small hole. this is to gain access to the allen head screw which holds the handle in place

Moen old shower faucets


Turn off the water to the house undo the screws. Pull out the cartridge. Bring it to any plumbing place or builder supply. Hand it to them they may hand you a new one free without a word being said. This has been the way for decades now. Install the new cartridge.

Why does the water not flow from shower valve when turned on?


Do you have water coming out of the tub spout and not the shower head? If so how does the water get directed to the shower head,is it by pulling up the diverter on the tub spout?If water is still coming out of the tub spout then the diverter is bad and the tub spout needs to be replaced.

I replaced a broken Hansgrohe hand shower with a new Hansgrohe Clubmaster 3 - now have very poor water pressure - how to correct?


Hi Christieb942,

When you get a new hand shower you can sometimes get sediment on the federally mandated FLOW RESTRICTOR. Not screaming, that is ****** in cheek. To CHECK the Flow Restrictor for debris, look at the hose connection end of the hand shower. You will see an INSERTED part that is green, yellow, or white. We have to push that in there to satisfy the EPA requirement for flow. You can pull it OUT and rinse it off. Then connect your handshower and try it and see if it is improved. You will not void the warranty in any way by doing this. I hope you understand what I am telling you, but if not you can call me 800-334-0455. I wish I could answer more directly, but Big Brother has eyes.

Moen fauset # 1225 Shower new cartridge and it still drips.


is it official moen 1225 ? generics can be of poor quality. turn off house water and remove cartridge. Small fingers? Put in valve and feel for debris or turn on whole house again for a few seconds to flush out valve. try another cartridge. Or try this first. take off handle and push in on stem. does drip stop. ? perhaps handle is not on right.

Moen shower/tub faucet


hi... yes that's a very common issue with moen "cartridges" -- it's very simple to fix..... grasp the handle and give it a gentle tug upwards when the water is on... if it retracts again, pull the handle out again and tug again but this time a bit harder. Not sure what causes this on new cartridges but it will fix your issue.

no,, they are set with water savers, they only flow aprox 2.5gpm this is the top flow,, if you have it more on hot you will get less flow bings it is temp control and won't let you burn your self,, nice thigs the government does,, the only other thing you could do is go back to the old style 2 or 3 handle diverters, but we all know nobody wants them anymore, good luck
