    Installed new pressure balanced moen 1225 cartridge won't regulate temp as water is
    Installed a new moen 1225 cartridge as the old one had seized and was not pressure balancing. New cartridge installed smoothly but when toilet flushes anywhere in house shower occupant gets scalded still won't pressure balance?

    Question, what type and size are the water pipes? What is the house P.S.I. This sounds like more of a piping problem rather than a cartridge problem. Back to you , Tom

    Problem is with pressure balancing valve, not the cartridge.

    Call 1-800-BUY-Moen with model number and request an new pressure balancing spool.
