M1-Valve Body Cleaning And Flushing


**Important** After removing cartridge, we recommend cleaning the inside of the valve body (shown below) with a soft bristled nylon brush (e.g. old toothbrush), to remove any calcium build up. After cleaning, turn on water supply lines slightly to flush clean water through the open valve. We recommend placing a bowl or cup over top of valve (for lavatory and kitchen faucets) or under the valve body (for shower faucets)-to redirect any water splash into the sink or tub/stall.
