Moen 8342 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great deal This is a great set for the price. It arrived in perfect working condition approximately 1 week after I ordered it. You can't come close to a set like this for less than $500. All the other comparable sets are at least $500 without the trim. I wish the trim came in a few other finishes but for the price I settled for the polished chrome. I may investigate changing the trim in the future. Also, as my contractor told me ahead of time that I wouldn't be able use both shower heads at the same time. he was correct. I was hoping to be able to use both shower heads at the same time but the isn't high enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Two kit in one Moen combine two faucets system together to make up this combination. One is the traditional single handle faucet to control the hot and cold water for shower or tub (there is no spout included for the tub it gets capped off). Second kit is the hand shower kit with three position controls for the shower selection, hand shower, stationary shower head and the third is cap off or use for other accessories. The instruction is a bit vague because of the individual instruction for each kit. In this kit I have an extra piece that I have no clue to it purpose. This kit is over kill for a simple shower system. The two capped off water channel can be used for other purposes; such as tub faucet, extra shower heads and so on. Even with these quarks, I find the quality of the faucets excellent in quality and build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicely designed Feels solid, Moen always gives good value. Lots of compliments already on the installation!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult Install It is in and the shower fixture works fine now, but the temperature valve inside does not match the picture guide outside. Also, you better be a good welder when you make this, my father assembled the plumbing and it has about 20 welded joints. I was not his favorite person the 8 hour day he spent putting this shower fixture together. The instructions were apparently unhelpful and he had to make 2 separate phone calls to Moen support as a few things had changed between the printing of the instructions in the box and how it is actually currently being done. It was a very frustrating experience. Now that it's installed though I have no complaints, it works well and looks nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value Had this unit installed in our master bath. Been only using it for 2 days so far but it is great looking and has good water pressure. The controls are easy to use. If you don't want all the body sprays, etc. this unit gives you a good shower head and hand held system at a really good price. Hundreds less than anything else we could find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we wanted! I'm glad we had this double-handle spa shower faucet installed by licensed plumbers. It comes with LOTS of directions and it required some welding. Now that it's in place and I've been able to use it, I am extremely pleased with our choice. The main shower head has lots of water power, and the spray handle makes cleaning and rinsing the shower easy. I'm so glad we decided to update this space.

  • can be install jets w this model?

    A. The Moen 8342 is compatible with body jets. You would have to have your plumber istall another diverter or change the one you have to be compatible. Also you may need a booster pump depending on the size and GPM of your water heater. Hope this helps and please let me know if you have any other questions.

  • Can both shower heads be used at the same time?

    A. The Moen 8342 shower heads cannot be used at the same time.

  • Can I use other trims with the Moen diverter valve and shower valve included in this system?

    A. The Moen valves are not compatible with any other manufacturer's trim pieces. If you want a different trim piece, choose the one you like and we can help you find the correct valve.

  • Can you use a thermostatic and pressure balanced valve with this system and which do you recommend?

    A. The Moen 8342 uses a pressure balanced valve and a diverter valve. Both of which are included in this system. I hope this answers your question!

  • Does the handheld unit detach from the bar? Is the bar metal and how does it attach to the wall. Thank you!!

    A. The Moen 8342 is a combo unit. It will detach from the bar. The bar is metal and attaches to the wall with the wall brackets and hardware.

  • Does this system include BOTH shower heads?

    A. Yes, the Moen 8342 comes with both the stationary showerhead as well as the hand shower.

  • How are the temperature and flow rate regulated on this unit? does the handle pull out?

    A. This unit does not have flow control. When you turn it it will turn on full force and you rotate the handle for temperature.

  • is it thermostatic valve or pressure controlled?

    A. The Moen 8342 has a pressure balanced control for on/off and temperature regulation. It also has the three function transfer valve to switch between the wall mount shower and the hand shower.

  • Is there a Moen overhead Rain Shower head that can be incorperated as the third part of the system and if so what is the product #

    A. Any rain shower will work with this system, providing there is enough water pressure for it.

  • This is a 3 function system, can I use for a tub as well?

    A. The diverter valve on the Moen 8342 does have an unused port and could be used for a tub spout.

  • what about the tub spout? is it included? how do i get a matching piece?

    A. The Moen 8341 includes a tub spout in the package but the 8342 does not.

  • Are any of the exterior parts plastic (e.g., flanges, drop ell, clamps, wall brackets)?

    A. The Moen 8342 will have both metal and plastic parts, if you want a full metal brand check out Phylrich or Rohl, most Kohler products too.

  • Can I have the Moen 8342 installed and instead of the shower head, connect a kohler K-8030 water tile?

    A. The Moen 8342 shower arm cannot fit a water tile on it. If you wish to remove the main showerhead function altogether and substitute a shower body spray function, you may do that. I hope this helps!

  • Can I replace the Moen 8342 shower arm with Moen S113 shower arm?

    A. Yes, they are compatible as they both have a 1/2" connection.

  • If I want to use the third outlet to connect to a tub filler spout, which ones are compatible?

    A. The Moen 3804 would be an appropriate non-diverter tub spout to add to your system. The diverter that is part of this system already is a three function, so all you would have to do is connect the tub spout to the third outlet.

  • Can I switch out the handheld shower head to a multi function handheld shower head - if so which one? thanks

    A. Any Moen hand held should work. The 21556 is a multifunction hand held. You could try another manufactures hand held but the actually hand held may no sit well in the holder. The hose connection would not be an issue. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

  • Does the hand shower have different spray patterns?

    A. The Moen 8342 uses the 8349 hand-shower head, which has only a single spray pattern.

  • How do you regulate the rate of flow with this unit. howvabout the temperature

    A. This unit does not have flow control. When you turn it it will turn on full force and you rotate the handle for temperature.

  • I am having a plumber install this item...do i need to purchase any other parts for the plumber?

    A. Moen put together a great solution for a shower combination. This is an all inclusive system.

  • What parts are plastic?

    A. The Moen 8342 only plastic parts are on the hand shower head, and the shower head itself. Thanks for your question and have a great day!

  • Will I need to purchase check valves for the Moen 8342?

    A. The Moen 8342 comes with valves included for the shower system. If by "check valves" you mean do the valves come with "stops" to shut off the water supply at the valve itself, then you would need to purchase those check valves separately.

  • Can I change out the handheld shower head for a multi function handheld showerhead? If so which one? thanks rebecca

    A. Any Moen showerhead would work as a replacement.

  • Can I substitute the Moen 8342 showerhead with the Moen 6320 or 6340 Shower Head?

    A. Yes you would be able to use the 6320 or 6340 shower head with this shower system.

  • can you add body sprays with this fixture? if so, does Moen have any flat head fixtues.

    A. The Moen 8342 comes with a diverter valve that has an unused port which could be configured for a body spray installation if need be. The term "flat head" does not really pull anything up under Moen. What are you looking for as far as fixtures go? I would be happy to help build your system and answer any questions you may have.

  • Do I need to purchase a volume control unit such as Moen8360 in addition to this?

    A. The Moen 8342 does not require the use of a volume control.

  • Does the 8342 come in a brushed nickel finish?

    A. The Moen 8342 does not come in a brushed nickel finish.

  • Does the handheld shower head have a pause capability so you can shut off the flow temporarily? If not can you recommend one that does?

    A. The Moen 8342 is does not have a pause function on the handshower itself, you can always add a shower arm diverter to allow such a feature. The standard diverter will allow you to pause it however.

  • If I decide to change the shower head in the future, one that has multiple flow selections, is that possible to do and which shower head models would you recommend?

    A. The Moen 8342 has a standard 1/2" connection to the shower arm. This means that you will be able to install any multi-function shower head that you would like later down the line.

  • You answered yes to "Can you use both shower heads at once? " Can you provide a plumbing diagram to accomplish this?

    A. If everything is installed right with no diverter problems you will be able to run both shower heads at once. There is a PDF file for installation on the page advertising this product with a complete diagram.

  • Can I get this unit or something similar in brushed nickel?

    A. The Moen 8342 is only available in the polished chrome finish. Moen does however make other shower units in a brushed nickel finish, like the Moen 270.

  • Does this system include the wall elbow?

    A. The Moen 8342 includes the A725 wall elbow.

  • What is a cc connection? I want to use CPVC piping and probably CPVC or combo metal threaded fittings for my project.

    A. CC connection means it is a copper to copper 'sweat' connection.

  • Does the Moen 8342 have a scald guard?

    A.

    The Moen 8342 has a scald guard.

  • what is the difference between this and the T8342 for $166 plus the cost of the rough valve? Does the transfer valve ship with this?

    A.

    The Moen 8342 includes the rough-in valve the t8342 (the "t" stands for trim) does not include the valve.

  • Can the handshower and showerhead be used simultaneously?

    A.

    The Moen 8342 has a 3 way diverter so you can have each going separately and then both on at once.

  • Can this be used with 1/2 inch supply lines?

    A.

    The Moen 8342 will work with 1/2" lines.
