tackle a moen shower faucet repair by themselves and
end up with a mess. However, with a little help, some
patience and these video's I do believe you can save
yourself a couple hundred bucks by keeping the plumber
at home instead of your house.
needed for a moen shower faucet repair: 1/2"
wire brush, plyers, screwdriver, vice grips, vinegar,
plumbers grease and brass craft tool. You will
need to have a replacement moen cartridge and the first
place I would look is at your local plumbing store.
I trust their parts more than Home Depot even
if they tell me they have the same parts. One
thing I hate is leaks, parts that are missing and people
who don't know what they are talking about. That's
what usually happens at local Home Depots because they
hire kids who have no clue what a wrench is, let alone
knowledge in plumbing.

above. PLEASE remember to turn off the main water
valve before you attack this repair.

Moen shower faucets:
the advice we gave you for moen faucets on Moen
Faucet Repair. We had to replace our home due to a
fire and we were able to knock out our plumbing
in one weekend after visiting local shops and searching
the internet. One of our other concerns was
shipping and handling costs. We were able
to find a site that offered free shipping. It
was a special at that time (March) and not sure
they offer it anymore.
