Replacing Bathroom Faucet Cartridge
This morning my wife informed me that the shower head in her bathroom had been leaking. I opened up the valve to inspect. I looked up YouTube and came across “How to Fix Leaky Shower Tub Faucet” by Matt Taylor. I went to Home Depot to buy a single-handle replacement cartridge (Moen 1225). It also came with a white cap that can be used to losing up the old cartridge.
I also bought a cartridge puller for Moen made by Everbilt. This one was probably not necessary, but made removing the old cartridge with ease. I recommend it.
The process took about half an hour. Not bad for a Sunday home replacement project.
