Moen Tub Faucet Lowe's

Replacing a MOEN bathtub faucet with a Kohler Mistos

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
