SOURCE: Moen Bath Tub Faucet

Hi varn4620,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You had to replace the faucet in the tub due to a broken plastic piece in valve stem. Bought a Moen ripped the wall out and put new faucet in. Went good untill we turned the water on and the shower rained on us. Tightened everything you could find to tighten .Every time the water is turned on the shower rains. Can this be fixed or is the faucet broken?

Is this new faudet a single handle? If so I"ve had this experience also. Most of the time it's because the guts were not lined up properly at the factory. You may have to play with it a bit.
Turn off the water and take the handle off and remove the sleave, remove and rotate the guts. Try 90' at a time. Turn water on to try it. Useually one of the other 3 positions will be right. The correct position is there, but it may take time to find it.

Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,
Harvey your Master Plumber

SOURCE: peerless single control bath faucet drips

If it is a ball cartridge then it should just pop out with a flat head. This is of course after you unscrew the metal cover off of it.

SOURCE: just installed shower and faucet in bath tub when

Verify the height from the shower valve to the Shower head, the instructions specify the correct distance if it is too short the pressure could be getting up to the shower head.

Perhaps the water pressure it too high at the valve not allowing all the water down the faucet outlet, there are set screws on the sides of the shower valve to adjust the water allowed in the mixing chamber.

Something is restricting the water flow to the faucet, creating enough pressure to send some of the ater supply up to the shower.

I hope some of these ideas help

SOURCE: Moen - Single lever bath tub faucet - cold water only

moen does not have a ball and washers....sounds like a Delta maybe. Moen uses cartridges. Either way sounds like a balancing spool problem....but you will need to make sure of the right name for the faucet to get the parts.

How to repair a washer-type bath & shower faucet


  • To take apart a bath/shower faucet for repair, first turn off the water. Then take the faucet apart by removing its handle, escutcheon and packing nut. The packing nut may be buried deeply in the wall, requiring a socket wrench for removal.

  • Your bath and shower faucets may have a renewable seat that can be smoothed with a seat-dressing tool or removed and replaced using a seat wrench. For replacing and repacking the washer, follow the same instructions provided for a washer-type faucet. Some faucets may need a complete replacement of the combination stem/seat unit.

I would like information on steps to remove bathtub and install pre fab shower


This is a fairly big job but can be done if you have the right tools and a little bit of time....... Depending on the existing tub material (cast iron,fiberglass, tin type ). You will want to remove faucet trim(handles,spout) first. Then the over flow plate on tub,as well as drain in the bottom (this will require a drain removal wrench or pair of needle nose pliers and screw driver, and some strong arms).After this is done remove tub unit , if the unit is a cast iron unit a good sledge hammer will work as you will need to break into halves to remove unless your trying to save tub and provided you can then get the unit out the door in one piece...... Caution, protect body and eyes in this process, flying pieces of cast iron can do some damage to body......cutting tub will take several blades and take quite a while to do......The next step depends on the location of faucet and if you are replacing the tub faucet or going to use the existing faucet.... I would recommend a new faucet because if this is going to be a shower only you may want to raise the faucets so they will be easy to operate without having to bend..Depending on the model pre-fab (two piece,three piece) unit you wish to install you may need to prep the drain to make sure it will fit your new installation. Let me explain... most tubs have the drain located at the right/left end of tub and the showers are located in the center of the unit thus leaving you to relocate the drain. If house is on slab it means a little jack hammering the concrete to provide this, if the floor is a conventional it means re-routing the drain to the center.......once all this is accomplished you are ready to install unit base,connecting drain. Next you need to get the faucet located to the right height or be able to get to the back side of the shower and remove the existing faucets and replace them after you install surround.....turn off water supply before removing faucet..... A sturdy surround will make for a less involved support system around shower area.Be sure to leave enough space between studs for faucet attachment. Sounds like a lot of work and it is but after its done you will have a great bath shower..... hope this was helpful.... sorry this only dealt with the plumbing aspects of the job......

Leaky single lever bath tub faucet


Faucet is leaking due to seats bad.

1- Turn water off first and remove handle and remove collar that holds stem and remove it..

2- in valve there are seats that looks like caps they may be in valve body or the end of stem itself.

3- Remove them and the springs and replace them this will take care of the leaking problem.

You will have to change out the waste and overflow. This is not a hard job, unscrew drain from tub, remove overflow plate and disconnect from p-trap. Go to local home improvement store and buy a new waste and overflow kit, many to choose from. Reinstall .
