I swore off Moen ever since then. We also didn't like the lever operation as the normal mineral buildup increased.

    I'm glad they are helping you in such a fashion.
    I was in the wholesale plumbing supply business and sold thousands upon thousands of Moen and Delta faucets among others. It was kind of weird - the city we were located was 100% Moen as far as plumbing contractors. The city 30 miles away was 100% Delta.

    My own personal preference was Delta. I did not like the Moen for the reason you state - very difficult to move the single handle once the grease dissipated from the cartridge. The advantage however was the single cartridge to replace vs. the ball, seats, and springs with the Delta. But the Delta was always easy to turn on and off.

    Now with my RA I cringe when I come upon a Moen single handle faucet - all but impossible for me to use.

    I'm glad your replacement went as well as my Mom's.
    Yeah, it's amazing how routine this has become. We have a really good facility nearby that does this and Lasik, and I suppose anything else to do with your eyesight. I've always hoped I'd never have to wear glasses and never did except for readers before I had the surgery, so for the surgery I sprung for the monovision so that I don't even need reading glasses now.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Wife just got home from her mothers and told me a story about the Lawyer who lives across the street! Seems the Lawyer Husband and Palm Reader Wife bought the place with no lawn just weeds for a front yard? He went and bought a real nice new riding mower and trailer to bring it home with. He went to mow his weeds down and had to put gas in it first. He made it one trip around the yard before the engine seized up due to no oil! Just blows me away they can spend big bucks on a mower and forget to put oil in the engine???

    I had a miserable boss for a year or two who told me a story about how their riding mower broke in spring so after the grass got ten inches tall he bought another one.
    This guy was huge, and I'm sure he bought a box store special, but the store did put oil in it.
    He put his son on the mower and after a couple tanks it seized up from no oil. (Boss said yes it had oil when they started)
    Box store told him the manual clearly stated to check oil level when fueling during break in and would not warranty...

    1, don't buy junk
    2, from box store
    3, always carefully observe new engines

    I don't care if you run them hard loaded when new, but check on them.
