Question about Danze Plumbing
I have replaced the cartridge but the faucet still leaks.
If the cartridge has a gasket, it should also be replaced. Another common problem in hard water areas is the buildup of lime. See if there are deposits which may cause a bad seal and, therefore, a leak. Hope this helps.

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your problem is: You have replaced a leaking Rohl cartridge in your kitchen faucet, but when you
replace the nut holding down the cartridge, the threads of the nut do not
engage. You have tried to push hard down on the cartridge while you turn the nut,
but to no avail.
Assuming you have the correct cartridge, I find it helpfull to take pictures with my cell (easily deleted later) as I disassemble to make sure I'm getting the new one in exactly right because there are only two reasons why the new cartridge won't go all the way in. 1 It's the wrong cartridge or
2 something's not right. Take the new one out and check that everything is correct, it's easy to make a small mistake. That's it.
Feel free contact me again!

Yes, a cartridge will probably solve it. There are two different Moen cartridges so be sure to take the old one with you so you get the correct one.

if the pressure is good with the head off then you can probably get a new head for it u shouldn't have to change the cartrige. it sounds like the head is clogged so plastic pieces in the head to help save water "water savers" it is hard to clean them i would try changing the head u should be able to find on for a moen, u buy for looks u buy it for life. take the old head with u when u go to buy a new one so they can match it up to the right one.if you can't find it and a lowes or home deptm try a plumbing supply house

SOURCE: My Delta Faucet Leaks
Check that we were looking at same parts diagram, but I would say RP-70 Ball assy., as well as RP-4993 Seats & springs . If it's only dripping, just seats and spring will usually get you by, but if they are sending parts, free of charge, or ball assy., isn't too expensive, I'd change it too. I have had some luck with removing ball assy, cleaning it well with fine steel wool, then removing seals, and springs, stretching spring slightly, to add more pressure to seal, clean seal, then dab on a little vaseline to seals, and re-assemble.
