Take the handle off and pull the spout off and there should be 2 o rings around the shaft , you will want to put tons of grease on those o rings and that should solve your problem. if it doesnt call moen 1800 buy moen and ask for a new spout o ring kit they should send it out to you for free!

I can't install my drain

To install a drain through the DIY technique can be tough, provided you have all the tools and equipment to perform the task. However, do not take risk with such a volatile thing and instead call a professional plumber, who are the expertise and the tools to install your drain. Residentail plumbers are always very handy with general plumbing, drain line and sewer line installation, repair and replacement.

Hi rbyerly,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is:
remodeled bathroom,installed new moen valve and hardware. Now water is coming from both the shower head and the faucet when the diverter is in the down postion. Question; Is this a single handle or three handle diverter? Assuming it's a three handle, it should just be a mater of adjusting the center handle. If single, the diverter is in the spout not the valve. I don't know how to direct you further without specifics. Feel free contact me again!
Please give me a rating here at before you sign off
Thank you,
Harvey your Master Plumber
