    Default Shower Faucet Identification

    Hi, I am wondering if someone can help me identify my shower faucet. I would like to install a new handle/faceplate and possibly change the cartridge at the same time. Thanks in advance!

    It is a Moen Moentrol valve.

    Thanks!... I found the following instructions for replacing the cartridge. I am assuming the 1225/1200 cartridge is the correct one?

    Yes it would be!
    A removal tool other than the white plastic one they provide may be required...

    The name of the game is turn it to break it free then pull.

    You can answer the questions in the pull down menus at this link to see the available trim for your valve.

    If the cartridge is stuck...what I do when I have finally got it out is I take a 1/2", wire handle, fitting brush and crush the handle so it will fit all the way into the valve and scrub it smooth, then flush it, dry it and put a thin coat of silicone grease in the valve and on the cartridge, then install it...

    I guess great minds think alike.
    I have also done that!
