Question about Moen & One Handle Tub & Shower Faucet

1 Answer

I just installed a Moen Traditional 82008BRB faucet and shower. After having it installed for a day, water will drip (20 or so drops) out of the shower head every 5-10 minutes. This also occurred when I had the shower head removed and just the open pipe, so it doesn't look like the shower head is the problem. Any suggestions?

HELLO- Very possible that there can be dirt or solder inside, hard to determine without looking inside at the sealing points of the vavle itself. Try to determine if it is the hot or the cold side,also look at were the valve seals off ,could be small imperfection in the seal ! Good luck

You need to install a new moen cartridge its a single handle posi-temp cartridge you should be able to get 1 for free if you are the original owner by calling 1-800-buy-moen more than likely when soldering in the new valve a little bit of solder broke free into the cartridge or hard water. When the water gets turned off and then turned back on it can break free alot of particles that can get jammed up in these cartridges or any fixture for that matter you will need a cartridge puller to perform this job with ease.

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.

I have a moen 1 knob push-pull faucet for my tub/shower. When I push it in sometimes water continues to drip. It is probably 30 years old. Are their replacement parts for it?


The old MOEN single handle faucets like youve described usualy took a 1200 or 1225 cartridge. Both are available at most of your big home improvement stores. The answer to your question is yes MOEN parts are still avail. Hope this helps. If this advise is helpful, please give me a vote.

Moen provides a lifetime warranty and doesn't require a receipt. Just call them and explain the problem and they'll send a replacement cartridge which should solve your problem. Cartridge replacement is pretty straightforward so it should be no problem to do it yourself. The one you have probably has a bad washer.

I installed a Moen Adler faucet. It will not shut


You may just have a piece of sediment lodged in the cartridge from when the water was shut off during installation. Carefully remove the cartridge and turn the water on to flush out any obstructions. re install the cartridge and test.
