seraj Rameshjan says:

thanks for the great video. I have a moen system with push down diverter and lately water started coming out of both faucet and sprout at the same time. I replaced the diverter pin 1198 and the filter. still the same problem but now when I push the diverter the water gets to the shower, but still very little water from the sprout. Do you know what the problem is? I appreciate any suggestion.

I replace about 8 of these per year. on the 1225, which is mostly plastic but at the end of it, there is a bit of brass. sometimes, it looks like it's scratched or nicked, even after only 6 months or so. why is this and is there a way to fix it? I'm worried after another 6 months it'll leak again

Melody Joy says:

Yeah, but did you take it out to dinner first?

The faucet on my tub was getting harder and harder to turn and then it gave out completely causing the water to gush out uncontrollably. I immediately shut the main water supply off. I then found your video. Thank you so much for taking the time to show us how to solve this problem. You are a life saver! God bless you! Problem solved for $40 from home depot. The cartridge came right out. No need for a big puller! Thanks again!!!!!!!
