Replacing Moen Roman Tub Faucet - How To Get Out Old Hardware

Moen manufactures faucets for kitchen and bath. After continued use, parts can become worn and develop problems. If the bathtub faucet starts leaking, or not easily move the handle or the faucet does not shut all the way, there could be a valve cartridge damaged or frayed. The cartridge valve monitors the output of hot and cold water tap. This problem can be fixed with a new cartridge.

Why the hell cant I get my faucet

To the damn water hoses? I recently purchased 4 new Moen bathroom faucets and instead of having copper feeder lines with brazed or soldered on male threaded pieces I have 16 inches of soft copper tubing. This tubing is 3/8th outer diameter. I have tried compression fittings from L...ompression fittings say they are 3/8 but they are several thousandth's bigger than my copper pipe and the compression nut literally ovals before it will get tight enough to seal. I tried getting solder on fittings but there doesn't appear to be the correct parts at Lowes or HD. I am pissed off to no end with my friggen multiple trips to the god damned store and I can't even hook a damn faucet up

  • Avatar banderson Plumbing Question. All of our fittings are Kohler brand. Do I HAVE to install Kohler fixtures??
    Mar 22, 2007 by banderson | Posted in Decorating & Remodeling

    I have been told we have to use all Kohler brand fixtures in the house we are building because when the "rough" plumbing was installed, they used Kohler valves. Is this true? Is there some way the fittings can be universal and we can purchase say, a Fontaine brand faucet even thought the plumb …he wall is Kohler brand? HELP!
    I DID ask a plumber. I have been told 2 different things. I wanted to order a bunch of fixtures on eBay and the store told me I had to buy Kohler brand or they wouldnt fit. Maybe its the sinks and toilets that need to be Kohler, and any brand for faucets?

    • First I will state that I am a licensed plumber. Hope that's not a shock to some of you yahooers to see a lowly plumber here on the boards....Anyway, now that's out of the way i shall continue....

      They way you have your terms set you seem a bit confused in regards to your …esigned to accomodate what you're looking for.....and here's the shock that no one knows.....they're cheaper 90% of the time (the only time they aren't really is if you want some foreign made fixtures).

      Well sorry for the long rant, hope my 2 cents helps.

      Good luck

    My bathtub cold water faucet is leaking. Like dripping a bit and I wondered if there was an easy way to fix this?

    • Sure. Is there a manufacturer noted on the bathtub fixture, like Delta or American Standard? If so, start with the manufacturer's web page, and/or take a good clear picture of the fixture to a good hardware store for help.

      Older faucets may have traditional valve seats and O rings... they're a little trickier to replace, but not hard. Newer ones have cartridges... unscrew the right bit, take out the old cartridge, drop in a new one, put things back together and you're done.

      Fairly typical instructions:

  • Avatar DV Bethroom remodel - $4,800. Is this reasonable. More details are below.?

    My bathroom is a 5X10. I am having the toilet, sink, and all fixtures replaced with Moen faucets and shower head. I am also having a tub surround intalled - It is a reconstituted granite type surround. The florring will also be completed with sheet vinyl and base trim. The total estimate is $4,800. Does this sound reasonable?

    • I'd say it's a little high... Toilets, sinks, and faucet fixtures/shower heads are EASY, no brainers.

      A tub surround is a little tricker, but, it doesn't sound like you're having the tub removed and a new tub put in, (now THAT would eat up cost).

      Vinyl sheet floorin …2 hours.

      But they don't do the other kinds of stuff... tub surround, flooring.

      You might want to piece this job out. Have a plumber come and do the 'water' stuff, and a construction or handyman guy to do the surround and floor.
