Old Moen Shower Faucet Hard to Turn On and Off

By Grover Koelpin 19 comments

good morning YouTube good morning
plumbers if you don’t know we do everyday
plumbing I teach my two young sons the
apprentices the trade as you see they are not here today I
gave the day off little celebration today and I gotta go
take care of one little simple job a moen cartridge and I’ll be taking a day
off too so if you haven’t subscribed please hit
that subscribe button and watch this journey as the apprentices learn to
plumbing trade the truck is waiting for them we just needed to jump on board so I
appreciate the subscription and see the next job all right typical moen hard to pull in and out here we go I forgot my glasses I forgot the grease in the truck pull the pin I think this an old moen legend faucet Moen 1225 B going in I went down and got my grease too ahh I forgot my glasses again Jesus Christmas don’t forget to put your horseshoe clip
back make sure it goes all the way down put the escutcheon back thats it. Were gonna make sure the hot is on the left and cold on the right Im gonna turn the water on make sure the hots on the Left
colds on the right if it isn’t I’m gonna show you a quick trick all your
apprentice’s out there make sure everything is on you know the deal. No packing nuts leaking here especially on the third
floor this was a little tough In and out real nice Perfect. hot water on right so what you do is this
rotate it to the left take the handle off I know all you plumbers know this rotate the
handle but not the stem tighten it back on. now cold is on the right hot is on the left now. don’t forget the cap. I did not even need my new moen cartridge puller easy and we’re off to the races
I really did not want work today couple little service calls pick up an
additional call there and thankfully I had to part so it’s a wrap and catch ya at
the next job

Great video CB1, but so question for you….Do you train your apprentices to NOT wear their seatbelts also?!?!?! Sorry, just had to bust your chops.

hey, I get to yell again. @5:06 bad technique putting the pliers on the shutoff valve stem, that portion goes down into the packing when it's turned off and that will chew the packing next time it's closed. then again I'd replace the shutoffs with ball valves the next round anyway.
