Two Handle 8" Wide Spread: Lever
A Two Handle 8" Wide Spread faucet will have a lever mounted on each side of the water spout. ​Moen produces a variety of Wide Spread rough-in valves. The handle assembly and interior handle mechanisms are not the same for each valve and they are not interchangeable. In order to service your Wide Spread faucet, we recommend that you identify your handle assembly and handle mechanism. This article will walk your through the process.
