Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaking shower head I bought this product this week. Leaking when the water the water hot and cold. Can not take bath because shower will leak, Professional plumber could not fix this problem

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke in about a month The diverter valve failed after about a month of use. It is now stuck in the up position, diverting the water up to the showerhead. I really like the look of this set and the magnetic showerhead is really nice, but I was not thrilled about the plastic face on the handle assembly and am even less thrilled about the failed diverter valve. I spent extra on this to get the "nicer brand" at the store, thinking that would ensure that I don't have problems with it, but apparently that's not the case.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from $200 brittle plastic!! I read a lot of reviews but have never written one. I think it is time... We have two of these. Both installed by licensed plumber. One in a tub and one in a shower. BOTH broke at the same place after only 3 showers! The handshower cradle broke where it connects to the shower arm. Quite alarming for the whole thing to come off and drop to the floor. I cannot believe this part is made of PLASTIC and only three rows of threads make contact with the shower arm. The weight of the hand held shower head, hose and magnet should have warranted metal. Very disappointed. Have always used Delta and never had this type of issue. Decided to buy Moen this time around and regret doing so. Still have bath and kitchen sink Moen products to install. Hope we have better luck with them. Also, I have tried to call for warranty help. A 45-50 minute wait is terrible. And to schedule a callback would be into next week. I sure hope someone will reach out and ship me two hand shower cradle replacements (179700BL) for your faulty products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Diverter broke after 20 uses I bought the Tiffin Shower valve and magnetic shower set. I barely used it and now the shower doesn’t work. Looks like the diverter doesn’t work. Now I have to wait for my call back appointment to get my concerns dealt with. Doesn’t Moen realize people have to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I liked all the features. I wanted this model for my new shower. It was a tricky installation because I wanted my old shower head plus the hose. We worked it out so it seems to work the way I had hoped it would. I have only used it once.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Thanks! Install is not going well. Can not get the thing to shut off, dribbles through the stack on hot side. Where is the OFF position??? Can turn handle 360 like a top! Followed directions and muddy drawings. MOEN?? NEVER again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shower valve replacement I could hardly imagine that I would buy a product, spend many hours installing the shower valve only to find the cartridge provided was missing a part that would not allow the water to shut off. Then, because I was told of “shipping delays”. I had to purchase a rebuild kit to get the shower to work. Because the wife does not respond well to “I don’t know how long the water will be shut off”.

Handle attachment doesn't seem to fit correctly. After tightening the set screw the handle wiggled. Per the drawing it looked like all the parts were there and assembled correctly. Could there be something wrong with the handle?
