How To Tell If My Shower System Is A Moen:

Moen bathroom faucets are designed with serviceability in mind. Each product is built to allow access to the interior parts.  Moen has made different cartridges over the years.

Most Moen fixtures will have the name "Moen" either written or engraved on it.  For single handle showers and tub/showers, the word Moen will be located on the escutcheon plate.  For two and three handle showers and tub/showers, the word Moen will be located on the knob handle caps.
