I will be replacing my shower faucet very shortly and I'm planning on buying either a Delta or Moen faucet.

I'm interested in any feedback that you can offer in regards to the pros and cons of each of these makes and also to find out which of these manufacturers the memebers prefer.

I happen to like Delta as I find they are easy to disassemble and repair Moen sometimes the cartridge is hard to remove and Moen did have a by pass problem.

Delta when ever I needed replacement parts there was never any problem getting parts.

Paul, I have received one reply which indicated that You remove the center cap to expose the screw that secures the handle. That sounds good to me. The faucet is on a town house that my grandaughter lives in and I wanted to do a litle research befor making the trip to her place to fix it. The unit has a spare bath so I'm in no hurry. RE your problem, my expierence is that both of these names are good. I used Delta Kitchen and bath fixtures in my house I built and lived in for 50 years. I found that Delta parts were redily available for repair and I have had good expierence with them. I recently built a new house and the plumber perfered Moen which I now have. I think all major brands are good, I'd check on the local availability of parts for both. Good Luck. Jack (Myrtle Beach SC)

Hey guys thanks for your opinion. To tell you the truth I was already leaning towards Delta and this just confirmed it.

Jack who are things in Myrtle Beach? I've been to Myrtle Beach (Surfside Beach) many times and always loved it there.
