Moen 12801 cartridge replacement (1225?)

I was unable to remove my cartridge before visiting and had to guess which one was the right one just by the end of the stem. I got a Danco 88431 and was relieved it was the right one. My plumbing system suffers from the effects of years of hard water before the water softener was installed. There is a special tool for removing this part which is required under such circumstances, but it is not carried at my local store. I was unable to find any usefull advise online to solve this problem. I found that the screw that holds the handle to the stem, a large fender washer, shallow and deep 3/4 sockets, and some extra washers or nuts worked as a decent puller as long as you don't turn the screw in too far. At that point the stem just turns and removing the screw becomes difficult. So just a little at a time, remove the screw, add a couple more washers under the head of the screw and screw it in again. When the cartridge is out too far for the shallow socket switch over to the deep socket and remove all the washers but the fender washer. Same process until its out. It's time consuming but I was able to do it without cussing or waking the sleeping baby in the next room (or waiting on shipping for the right tool). :)

Purchased the cartridge and replaced it in a few minutes. However, this is the third one in three years so, I am an old hand at replacement. This time however, I really had a hard time removing the old one. It was hung up and broke apart while being pulled out. Took a few extra minutes to get it out. Overall, good product, I think they cost too much like everything else. Thanks Moen and Home Depot.

I just replaced two Moen 4600 faucet cartridges (Moen cartridge part #1225) with the Danco #88431 cartridges--used the Danco puller as well---saved $5.00 per cartridge and they appear to be exactly the same construction as the Moen cartridge---we'll see how they hold up. Home (and faucets) bulit in 1981.

It took me about 15 minutes to put this in. Most of that time was reading the instructions.
Pros: Reliable, Easy to Install, Good Instructions, No Leaks

Had to watch the video first to see how to take old one out. You need a plastic tool. It is sold with the new. Once it was out no problem then.
Pros: No Leaks, watch a video on

I have just bought this cartridge to replace my Moen 1225. It does what it says. It looks just the same to me. No problem found. A save of $5 from the Moen original part. Recommended.
