Question about Moen & Replacement Cartridge
I replace new moen 1200 stem for shower fauce, still leaks due to existing scratches brass body housing (inside scratches by screwdriver). When I inspect the old stem, it had old rubber silicon around the stem, which I believed prevent this leak as before. I need to know what type of silicon or glue so I can fix this leak.Thanks.
The proper fix for this is to hone out the scratches
take steel wool and wrap it around a dowel or piece of wood or ust stuff it into the housing and turn back and forth to smoth out the scratch
if the scratch is real dep you wll have to go to harbor freight and get a honing tol that fits on the end of a drill
the stem should have some type of crown washer that you should be able to get an assortment from lowes , ace or hd
If you are asing for a recommendation for a good silicone I always use GE silicone it is the best
as a last resort (if nothing else works to stop leak
I would take cartridge wall and streatch teflon tape as tight and smooth as possible to block water coming up between housing and
cartrideg this is not recomended by mfg just a spa (my initials) certified suggestion
