Tub spout. Moen

Just bought a new tube spout to repalce my old one. The new spout same as the old, very common spout.. the inside of the spout has a (white) PVC threaded pipe in it with a smaller tube inside that as a O-ring in it.. I tried to unscrew annoying pipe but it wont budge.. and I dont want to ruin it incase I end up returning it. I think its just a reciver for a 1/2 inch copper pipe (which will fit).

Im calling Moen in the morning.
thanks

Hi handie Man,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: Just bought a new tube spout to repalce my old one. The new spout same as the old, very common spout.. the inside of the spout has a (white) PVC threaded pipe in it with a smaller tube inside that as a O-ring in it.. You tried to unscrew annoying pipe but it wont budge.. and you dont want to ruin it incase you end up returning it. You think its just a reciver for a 1/2 inch copper pipe (which will fit).

That is exactly what it is. You've purchased a universal spout which requires a 1/2" copper pipe coming out of the wall. If you're not up to changing to that, take the old one to a plumbing supply. If you're lucky they might have a direct replacement.

We have installed a moen 82490 one handle tub & shower unit. When we turn on the water you could shower and bath at the same time. If you pull the plug for just a shower the water to the spout stops...


If you pull the silver knob on the tub spout up, the diverter located located inside will redirect water up to the shower head and when lowered it will return the water to the tub spout. It sounds as thought the diverter is not working properly. Hope this helps..

Moen shower valves are failing


the diverter is stuck. you have to move it up and down to free it up. the diverter is the mechanism attached to the tub spout that switches the water from shower to tub. you may also need a new diverter if fiddling with it doesn't work.

When the shower valve is engaged I still get water out of the tub spout and limited water out of the shower head. I just replaced the cartridge thinking that might be the problem but no luck


it sound's like you need to replace the tub spout.there should be a set screw on the bottom of spout loosen and twist off. replace with moen spout for ease of re-install.it's a real pain in the *** to try and replace -o- ring spout.

Water comes out of both the faucet and the shower head at the same time when I turn the water on past halfway.


You will have to get a new tub spout, is sounds like the old diverter is not working right. The new one should fix the problem.

Moen roman tub faucet on hot water side stops flowing and just trikles out


If this occurs after you were able to get hot water to flow from the hot side then I suspect that it is a piece of debriis that has found its way to block the port opening. Remove the acess panel to the valve shut the water supply off to the tub valve using the handles only first on the valve. With the access panel removed tak e a bucket or other similar container and remove the hot water tubing from the spout. Once that is accomplished stick the tube into the container and turn the hot lever on. This should blow out any debris that may exist. Reassemble the valvle. If this did not work remove both the cold and hot feed tubes from the spout and use an air compressor to blow the spout out. If neither of these worked you will probably need to call a serviceman to resolve as other options require cutting the hot supply to the handle and may require special tools that you may not have handy. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
