      I purchased a new home (4 years ago) and specified a moen tub/shower fixture for both bathrooms. While the one in the master bedroom has been trouble free I have had to replace the cartridge in the spare bedroom twice after first replacing the washers etc.. It still continues to leak. What can I do to fix this problem

      I just completed a master bath remodel utilzing a Posi-Temp Moen shower faucet. I installed the manifold and removed the cartridge before sweating any pipes. I flushed the system prior to re-installing the cartridge. After re-assembly I tested the system. I had a lfriend, who is a licensed plumber check the system for me prior to installing the rest of the shower. It appeared to work properly. The bathroom was then completed. After the first shower, I noticed that water dripped out of the shower head when the faucet was in the off position. I replaced the cartridge at a cost of $46.00 and returned the cartridge I purchased in the first place. The shower head still leaks. At this point I am aboslutely disappointed and would never purchase another Moen product. It seems I will have to remove the entire shower and replace the manifold. This time with a Delta or a Kohler. Any suggestions prior to me undertaking this enormous task? : : :
