MOEN cartridge or another?

My Moen shower head is terribly leaking! I have replaced this cartridge (I count) over 4 times in the past two years' time. My home was built in 1983 and is plumbed with well water. Is this problem simply a MOEN problem or should I credit the continual supply of calcuim and many minerals (and fine sand granuals) in my water? Thanks for ideas and feedback.

I've never had this problem with my Moen cartridges and don't recall ever changing the one in the shower in house over 30 years old. I did change the one in the bath last year. I have had to change practically all the Moen fixtures themselves on 5 sinks because of leaks and corrosion in other than the cartridge area.
But, besides this, if you have sediment from well water, as I do, you should have a whole house filter.
