Installed a new shower and have only cold water hooked up but only getting a trickle of water through it.


Lots of shower valves have pressure balancing cartridges nowadays in order to get full flow out of hot or cold you have to have both the hot and cold hooked up to give even pressure on both sides of the cartridge that should fix your problem and give you a full flow

My shower only stays hot for a minute and then goes cold even though the hot water works everywhere else. I have a hot and cold tap and a third one to direct to shower or tub.


I would take a look at the stem replacement task. Maybe something is clogging the hot water flow, perhaps a damaged washer or debris

I have a newly installed shower with moen chateau shower faucet. After several successful showers, the water has completely stopped. what could be wrong?


There is probably junk in the lines that has clogged mixing valve Moen is pretty simple to operate and maintain, however, before the new system was installed, maybe it was done, the water should have been run through the valve itself, without mixing valve installed. I am going to provide you with a video that shows how to remove the valve and, with a little help, you can remove valve and hopefully can clear the lines by running water, slowly, through the fixture, without the valve installed. You would want to try this anyway to make sure you have flow to the faucet:

Make sure all junk is cleared from lines and re-install your valve. If your cold and hot water is backwards, remove the valve and rotate 180 deg. and re-install. You can note the way the tabs are when you remove, and install in the same position.

Leaking shower head


Not unless you had a backward plumber , If the diverter at the faucet is open for tub, then no water will go up the shower, The shower may hold enough water up there to make it look like a drip, Even if the valve was leaking all the time, it would not go up, it would come out the faucet. It only works with pressure. Unless the valve was plumbed wrong,,, Hope this helps.

We installed two new single handle shower faucets with both hot and cold supply lines pressurized to each of the faucets. The problem is that no hot water will come out of either faucets. Their seems to be...


Sounds like the valve is defective. The supply to the stems was not bored out at the factory giving you a valve that is essentially pretty on the outside and solid on the inside. To test it, uninstall the valve. Remove the stems. Then try running a pipe cleaner though the valve from the supply side and see if it stops before the stem.

Cannot get the cartridge out of the moen sh lav faucet..no cartridge tool, what can I use to get the cartridge out???


There is a small U clip that holds the cartridge in. It just slides up or down. Some Moen cartridges are very difficult to remove, they can be corroded inside "almost fused" it is best that you get a moen cartridge puller. Lowe's has them. If you decide to tackle this job make sure the water is off, and when you pull the cartrige remember the direction it came out. If you put it in backwards your cold will be hot, and your hot will be cold!
