A Moen Dialcet faucet is a brand name of a faucet. Moen makes all kinds of faucets for your sinks and tubs, and the Dialcet is one of their most popular brands.
Dialcet faucets are available in many designs and configurations including goosenecks, pull-down, and wall-mounted.
Moen faucets use a cartridge to control water flow for both the hot and cold running water. Moen makes cartridges in various styles that can be used with different types of handles, but all cartridges have a common operating principle. The inner parts of a cartridge are square in shape and linked together with springs, allowing them to move back and forth in a controlled manner.
The cartridge is attached to the handle and rod and also mounted inside of the faucet body, where it can move up and down when working with hot and cold water. A spindle connects the cartridge to the stem, which allows for rotation of the inner parts of the cartridge. The stem is connected to the faucet handle, and as it turns the cartridge is moved up or down.
This movement opens and closes an internal valve that controls water flow. When you turn on a Moen faucet, the springs attached to the cartridge push out and rotate the stem and spindle so hot and cold water can pass through the cartridge and out of the faucet.
