Question Stanadyne Single Handle Shower Faucet

Have a slow drip (ever 5-7 seconds in the bath) and need to replace cartridge in my single handle Stanadyne shower faucet.

I didn't grab any pictures, but can post later if I need to. Most stuff I've read indicates to use this MOEN Single-Handle Replacement Cartridge-1200 at The Home Depot cartridge but since it's not technically a Moen, I wanted to see if anyone had any advice. I see there are a few different shapes to these cartridges and with a 2 week old in the house, I'd rather not have the water off (have to turn main off) for long and have the part ready to go and just switch it out instead of driving to the store to get it with water off.

I can post pics if that will help. There is no information on the outside of the escutcheon plate. All I get it Stanadyne. No idea of time frame for install.

Thanks in advance.

If you contacted Moen direct with a picture and some info they will send you the needed parts for free.

I appreciate the help, but I've read that since I was not the purchaser of the faucet, just the home it was in, I would not be eligible for this free replacement part. I may try doing that just to get them to provide the part required, if I can't first get it here.

Thanks.

Not sure where you saw that, it's just not true.
I've done it many times and I was not even the owner of the house, they just asked a few questions to ID it and where to ship it.

perhaps their policy has changed, but moen did not offer any part for free. They confirmed the part needed (1225) and said I could buy it at Moen.com or Home Improvement stores.

I purchased on Amazon.

Their contact form asks specifically if you bought the faucet and have proof of purchase, FYI.

Now to see how the install goes when I get the piece.

Any tips on the install or is this ( http://www.moen.com/swf-embed?src=/a...=410&width=640 ) sufficient?

Thanks.

I replaced the cartridge in my Moen kitchen faucet not too long ago. The faucet was like the one in the bottom row middle picture in the instructions you reference.

I think that is a very good tutorial and from what I remember is exactly how it is done. You need that white tool they show to really wiggle the old cartridge back and forth before you try to pull it out.

I pulled hard on mine after doing the wiggle and it popped out up into the air shocked me! lol

Good luck!
