Question about Moen Home
My new Moen diverter valve has an issue; it's 2-function; shower head and hand held. When I turn it all the way to either the shower head or hand held, the other fixture still has a slow, tiny trickle. How do I adjust it so the non-used fixture is completely off to kill that trickle? I've already replaced the diverter cartridge once as the original was faulty.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: I just installed the valve
Assuming that your two heads are fed from the typical curved wall mounted shower pipe, what you need is a diverter valve. Removed both heads till it's down to just that curved pipe. Get a diverter valve from a plumbing supply store. Tell the sales folks that you want to install a diverter valve so that in one position, the hand held receives water and in the other, it cuts the hand held and puts it to the reg. shower head instead. They should give you a "T" sort of fitting. The female threads of this screws into that curved shower pipe. Then you will find two male thread ends. These connect to both your shower heads. Finally there will be a push/pull knob that is operated to control which head gets the water.

SOURCE: I purchased a Moen L82691SRN
You have purchased a scald guard faucet, that you will have to set for your own house. If you take off the handle and face plate and look down there should be a plastic part (usually a deep blue) with teeth. It restricts the hot water side of the unit. If you pull it out and rotate (about halfway) you should have water flow. If it is still not hot enough rotate it more, or less.

In general, leaks are often caused by a scratched or torn cartridge, O-ring, or grommet. Typically, a cartridge replacement will correct this type of leak. -------- Lifetime Warranty - Moen faucets come with a (Limited) Lifetime Warranty against leaks, drips, and finish defects. (post 1995 to the original home owner) ----------- But if cartridge replaced and still leaking then it can be loose fitting or problem in water valve.Click this link below and go through troubleshooting:--- http://howtobyme.blogspot.com/2011/07/replace-cartridge-but-still-water.html ---------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
