My shower head comes on all the time


two possible causes. 1- make sure the valve body is installed with with shower mark on the valve body facing up. 2 - if you used pex pipe and fittings to stub out for the tub spout this will restrict the flow sending water to the shower, '' change out pex pipe and replace with copper or galvanized pipe

To talk about your problem forces me to assume a few things.....If you allow the water to flow without cartridges and handles, the water must be flowing straight through the cartridge channels and out into the tub. It is not flowing through your tub spout or shower head when you test the water this way. If I'm correct, then the problem is isolated to the water mix operation. That means coming out of your spout or shower head. So now I have to ask a question. When you operate as normal (cartridges and handles installed) does your problem show up only on your shower head or does it also show up when operating out of the tub spout? If the problem is isolated to the shower head, try a head replacement. It may be partially plugged. If it's head or spout there may be something in the mixing pipe that only shifts around as pressure increases. I hope that is not your problem. It would require pulling those pipes out for inspection and most likely replacement. Nimsgame

Check the valve body to make sure it is right side up. there will be a marking on the valve that tells witch is to go to the tub spout and witch to the shower head. If you have it right then you will need to disassemble the valve body and look for debris in the cartridge.

When using the tub water comes out of the shower head


if the pipe feeding the tub spout is pex, cpvc or poly then it needs to be replaced with a pipe with a larger i.d. like copper or galvanized or reduce the pressure to the house.

On new Moen shower faucet, when I turn on faucet, water drips from shower also.


The faucet was installed upside down.
The shower riser pipe in the wall is to short( the distance between the faucet and shower head).
One of the biggest problems is if your shower faucet was installed with Pex pipe to the tub spout. Pex pipe will restrict the flow and force the water back up and out of the shower head.
The tub spout must be piped with at least 1/2 brass pipe nipples and fittings, or 5/8 OD. copper pipe and fittings.
Hope this helps, if you further questions please let us know.

The rough plate goes on inside or outside of green board? Also can u use pex for the downspout for tub it seems to restrict flow and sends water to the shower...


I do not recommend pex for the downspout as pex is flexible and the tub spout needs to screw on or attach to a solid pipe. I recommend copper but you can use galvanized piping. As far as the rough-in plate it goes through the greenboard as you will have a whole the size of the plate and depending on the finish you are attaching to the greenboard.... there is information on the plate as to the depth that needs to protrude from the greenboard to facilitate the trim. If you have any questions just ask. THX

Delta T13090 faucet shower head working at the same time.


The only possible explaination is that the water is finding it easier to go up than down. Water is lazy, just like me. ;)

Use an allen key to remove the tub spout. It's underneath and awkward. Once the allen key is loose, the spout just slides off. Try running the water. This may solve your problem and all you'll need is a new tub spout. If not.....

Turn the water off to the house.

Use an allen key to remove the handle.

Use a phillips to remove the trim plate (2 screws). Cut the silicone around the trim if it's there (which, in a proper installation it shouldn't be, but...)

Unscrew the nut (usually chrome) holding the cartridge into the brass body of the valve. The cartridge pulls straight out. Check for restriction in the ports of the cartridge itself. Check for restriction in the line going down to the tub spout. If you can't find anything, replace the cartridge.

Reassemble & Enjoy!

Water will not turn off


are the handle extensions on the cartridges all the way. i know sometimes the moens are a pain after you put the trim on to get them on and seated right so it actually spins the cartridge. also check the cartridge alignment the cartridges have little white tabs on the sides that correspond with a slot in the valve body if they aren't aligned it won't shut off either
