    Default Shower cartridge replacement cost

    Is around $400 a reasonable charge for replacing a Moen shower cartridge?

    Default charge

    I would replace them all day long for that price. The only way it should cost that much would be if it was stuck in place and the "plumber" did not have the tools to extract it, or did not know how to use them. You could almost replace the entire valve for that cost.

    Rates vary considerably for plumbing repairs.

    Most of the local plumbers here with full page ads, take my published prices, and double them.

    It's that easy for them.

    Default price

    However, if you ask the person who charged it whether that was a "good price", he would tell you that, "he likes it".
