Forum Title: Shower head air intake?
Hi, just installed the Moen Align shower head and tub valve. The actual valve that they gave me was a basic moen $65 pos temp? Valve. When I turn on the valve I get a loud air intake noise coming from the shower nipple and putting my thumb over it while the tub is running seems to decrease the water flow slightly. Bad cartridge ?

I have never noticed a sucking sound from a shower nipple while running a tubspout. Though I have in the past noticed a valve not flowing quite as much with the shower text nipple capped off. Don't remember what valve it was, though. Did you try it with the showerhead installed?

Yea it just muffles the suck a bit but still noticed.

Called plumbing house, they said go through moen, called moen and they are sending me a new cartridge. That would be the only replaceable part.
