Moen 1225 Valve leaking?


I just replaced this valve and now I have an intermittent leak from the showerhead. I was dripping approximately once an hour, but it now it seems to be increasing in frequency. Could I have nicked one of the seals when installing it? I'm not sure what to try other then picking up another one and seeing if I have the same issue...is this a common problem?

Moen 1225 Valve leaking?


no opinions on this one? I don't mind replacing the valve again...I just wanted to make sure that would fix the problem.

When you replaced this you need to flush out and debris before you reinstall. Did you install a genuine moen cartridge. was it brass or plastic. Make sure it is also in the right position when you reinstall and put handle back on.

Thanks for the reply. I honestly can't remember if it was an actual moen. I think it was another brand, but made for moen. It was all brass and I did flush it out. What it the difference between the 1200 and the 1225?
