Question about Moen Plumbing

1 Answer

When installing a new Moen widespread 2-handle faucet, we (stupidly) reversed the hot and cold water bodies. Is there any reason we can't just leave them like they are?

The only reasons I can think of are two:

1. Personal safety. If someone gets their hand(s) burned using what they think is the cold water, you can be held liable in court.

2. Building codes. You may have issues when time to sell if an inspector catches the problem then.

HOT AND COLD REVERSED MOEN & ONE HANDLE TUB


This is a very simple fix. NOTE: This is for a Posi-temp model only!! First turn off the house water. Relieve the water pressure at a nearby sink. Then remove the handle from the faucet. Remove the black plastic piece, then the two white plastic pieces (these control how hot the water gets by controlling how far the handle turns), then the metal cover over the center piece of the valve. Once these are out of the way, there is a small metal clip that you can see that holds the cartridge in place sitting in a **** on the top of the center piece. Remove this carefully with a small straight edge screwdriver, taking care not to lose it. Then with a small pair of pliers, pulling on the center of the cartridge, pull straight out. Once the cartridge is completely out, turn it counter clock wise, 180 degrees and then reverse the process. The hot/cold will be in proper location now.
Now for an older style, simply take the handle off, turn the center portion of the cartridge 180 degrees counter clock wise and return the handle. Hot/cold will now be in their proper locations.
Good luck.

Hot side is cold cold side is hot


hello, this can happen if the shower body unit was installed incorrectly, the installer connected the hot to the cold side and cold to the hot side, what you can do might be a bit difficult but the water supply lines are reversed you need to open up the wall and attach the cold and hot lines to the right sides.. hope this helps
