How To Remove & Replace A Moen Shower Valve Cartridge - Posi Temp Repair




What do you think about this video?

Averageskill: here's what I do if possible...1. go buy a brand new tub/shower valve & trim set ($80.00). 2. Trace a line where the large chrome plate covers the hole and cut along the inside of that line as to make the hole as large as you can where the plate will still cover. 3. remove the existing valve body with metal sawzaw blade. 4. remove new cartridge from new valve body so you don't smoke it and carefully solder in the new valve body. 5. re-install new cartridge and test for leaks. 6. install brand new trim, filler and head. 7. Most importantly: take the old valve body and throw it as far as you can into a vacant field, ocean, river, whatever feels best.

BakerOne: Good job and nice video.

Barry Baldwin: The trick with the cowling screw and spark plug wrench to get the cartridge is a life saver. Thanks!!!

James Rich: Thank you! Very informative. Made my job easier!

Janice Simone: Perfect example of how NOT to pull a 1222 cartridge.

Turbo King: Sharing experience to try and help- understand that many of us want to engineer our own puller solution, but in this case just save the potential grief and much extra effort and get the puller tool. It's not expensive really and has been almost ~ required after all in my experience. The cartridges usually do not come out easy, and prying back and forth can wind up causing a lot of problems.
Also may have noticed that the trim plate is not required to be removed, which is significant for many because it's often caulked in around its periphery too. Can save a lot of time and effort to leave it on.
Last, should really use the silicon grease for re-installation. And if it's been in there long, the cartridge bore may need some attention first too.
Hope it helps.

jstu45: the puller is only $15...always buy a factory cartridge for longer service life.

OTC: You do know MOEN will send you a brand new Cartridge....they sent me one.

Tim O: Yours was the only video to explain the balance valve, the new one the i installed had one that was stuck. Got it freed up and off we went, thanks

DeeInTheHouse: ....you were missing the limiter pieces after you removed the black piece with the philips screw...

s3v: dude. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! I had a leaky valve and couldnt find the puller tool locally. I used your trick and it worked like a champ. I didnt have a socket that was the correct length, but i improvised with a shorter socket and a small 1/4 in socket on top of that. Worked like a champ!

I love this type of ingenuity, Thanks again!!

Jana Richardson: Thanks! You video saved me from having to call the plumber!!

Allan Hope: what replacement cartridge did you get? i read that moens 1225 replacement fits everything but mine looks like yours. the 1225 isn't the right one at all.

Devinder Singh: Thanks a bunch, I didnt even know that cartridge itself can be replaced. Saved me 200 dollars. Yodabest

MIRANDA PLUMBING: I like your homemade puller but a good plumber always uses the right tool . ( Do it right the first time..)
