I replaced the shower cartridge and now it drips worse than before.
When the old unit was out I turned on the water to flush out the core.
This always works for me. I've done about 6 of these sucessfully
Could the core be bad?
I tried 2 new cartridges and they both leaked
Any tricks out there?
I recently installed some Moen shower valves in our new house. They're all
the pressure balancing type, and while none of them dripped, I did have one
that produced very low water flow.
I turned off the water, pulled the cartridge, and didn't see anything wrong
with it. So, I disassembled the cartridge, put a light coat of silicone
plumbers lubricant on everything, then put everything back together.
Everything worked fine after that.
