How to Identify Your Moen Bathroom Sink Cartridge

Moen Bathroom Cartridge Identification Chart

What is a cartridge?

The cartridge is the entire basis for the faucet's function.  It controls the operation of the handle, flow and temperature control of the water.  A cartridge will remedy a leak or drip from a faucet. 

 Always turn your water supplies off before disassembling your faucet. With the supplies turned off, move your faucet’s handle to the “on” position to relieve pressure.
