    Remove the plastic retainer Most you remove with a screw driver prying toward the center, and then pull out the whole Cartridge  ,
    take it to the parts place and match it up for a new one. Is it not like that?

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.

I have a single handle shower faucet, turn all the way and you get only hot water.... It has been dripping over the last few weeks when off, hot water. now it's a steady flow. How do I adjust...


hi there:) your problem is caused by the cartridge inside the valve body. could be one of 3 things...1)the cartridge is damaged 2)hard water build up 3)foreign matter. it is not to difficult to replace it yourself: first turn off the water then find the set screw, which holds the handle in place, usually located at the base of the handle and remove it. (look closely/carefully cause it's hiding) then remove the escutcheon ring and the trim sleeve to expose the "bonnet" (lock ring) and remove it. (ritey titey lefty loosey) now you can remove the cartridge and inspect it for debris/damage. if you need a new one just take it w/you to any plumbing supply including home depot and/or lowes and they will help you find it. here is the installation/owners manual from peerless: http://peerless-faucet.com/customer-support/find-repair-parts/documentation/P8760.html hope this helps but if you need anything else just ask:)

Shower drips - seems to be increasing


Need to replace your internal seals inside the shower valves.
Go to Home Depot, Lowes,etc. and make sure you take your model number and maker of your shower and they can get you the parts to repair the valves to stop your leak.
If you do not repair it soon, the water leaking by will cut your metal seat and it will never stop dripping, you will have to replace the valve and it is a MAJOR job.

I have a two-handle Delta faucet that drips.  With both handles turned completely to off, the faucet drips at a about 1 drip every 15 seconds


sounds like you need to replace the valve seats. if you shut the water off and remove the handles you will see the valves. you have to remove them and under that you should see these little black things. they come out but have springs under them so be careful. the black things are the valve seats. i would start by replacing them

Replace the seal on the 470 DST single handle pull out faucet


Turn the water off at the faucet, remove the handle and the retaining nut that is apart of the trim. You will see where you can use a wrench to remove it. The ball assembly will come right out and you can replace the washers right below it. Put it back together and if needed, tighten the tension ring that is on the retaining nut (usually grey or white in color) so it won't leak water around the ball stem. Good luck.

Dripping faucet


Moen is a cartridge style unit. They make two different cartridges that you can buy at Home Depot. Turn the water off under the sink and then remove the handle. You will see the the cartridge. It has a U shaped retaining clip that pulls out. Once you remove it, then take a pair of pliers and pull the cartridge out. Take it up to HD and match the one you have. The new one will slide right back in and you will reverse the process.
