How do I find out what replacement cartridge I need for and existing moen leaking single handle shower faucet

When the Moen faucet was installed, they included a small sticker with the make and model of it for obtaining spares. You stick that somewhere under your sink like mine is :>) If you take out the cartridge and take it to home Depot or Lowes, that keep all the spares. Lowes used to give you the parts from free. there are only 4 types! https://www.h2ouse.org/which-moen-cartridge-do-i-need/ https://www.google.com/search?q=moen+shower+faucet+cartridge+replacement

How to remove a towel bar with slot in bottom no set screw

There is no screw here. Insert a small flat screwdriver -- small enough to fit fully in the hole -- and pivit it up, so that the tip presses toward the wall. This should easily release the locking tab.

Best way to clean a moen shower head

https://www.google.com suggests the following link: https://www.hunker.com/12267493/how-to-clean-a-moen-shower-head Quoting from link above: How to Clean a Moen Shower Head By BRENDAN O'BRIEN Photos.com/Getty images Taking a shower could be hazardous to your health if you do not properly and regularly clean your shower head. According to a study at the University of Colorado at Bolder, your shower head may contain harmful bacteria. But not to worry, with some old-fashion vinegar, elbow grease and about 45 minutes, you can take a shower with peace of mind. Clean a Moen shower head while it is still attached, or remove it before cleaning.
  • Volume 0%Detached Shower Head Step 1 Remove the Moen shower head. This may require pliers or vice grips. If you use tools, place a towel or rag over the shower head to protect it from scratches and dents. Step 2 Remove the cover of the shower head, if there is one. The cover may twist or snap off. Do not force it if it seems stuck. This is not a requirement. You can clean the shower head with still attached. Step 3 Warm the white vinegar on your stove. Do not boil the vinegar. Gauge how much vinegar you will need by the size of your Moen shower head. You need to fully submerge the shower head in the vinegar. Step 4 Pour the warm white vinegar in a bowl or bucket. Place the shower head in the bowl and submerge it in the white vinegar. Let it soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Step 5 Clear the holes in the shower head with a paperclip or thin wire. Clear all of the debris from the holes. Dunk and rinse the shower head back in the vinegar. Step 6 Rinse the shower head and cover with hot water. Re-install the Moen shower head and cover. Test the shower to make sure you have re-installed it properly. Attached Shower Head Step 1 Fill a plastic bag with warm white vinegar. Step 2 Place the bag over the Moen shower head so it is complete submerged in the warm vinegar. Place a rubber band or piece of tape around the stem, securing the bag to the shower head. Step 3 Remove after 15 to 20 minutes. Take an old toothbrush and scrub off the mineral deposits and debris. Rinse off the shower head thoroughly with hot water and a wet cloth. Brendan O'Brien

Why does moentrol bath valve give hot water pointed to "C" and vice versa?

Easy one.Feel the pipes. The pipe on the right should be cold. If the pipes are correct, turn the cartridge 180 degrees.

Put in a new moen cartridge in shower and it drips and I have no pressure and the handle is loose

Sounds like your cartridge is not properly seated and also may not be aligned properly. Remove it and apply a thin coating of plumbers grease to the cartridge and then work it back into it's position rotating back and forth to insure it is going down all the way.

How do I remove a Moen Brantford towel bar from

Same problem. The key to releasing it is finding the 'latch' of the 'spring'. I wish I could upload a photo. It just snaps off the way the battery compartment opens on your TV remote. On a TV remote if you apply too much pressure then you break the 'latch' on the battery's door, as we all know it is about applying pressure it the right place of the 'spring'. Once I got the correct placement of the flat head screw driver it was easy, but it took me 30 minutes to figure that out and I broke a piece of the towel rack.
