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.

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.

Feel free contact me again!

It sounds like the diverter is not fully opening to allow the water to run to the spout. If the diverter is in the wall, perhaps there is a seal in there that needs replacing. If it is in the spout, just replace the spout,

I am trying to replace an old delta monitor 1300 diverter spout. It seems when I take off the spout it has a threaded part in the middle of copper pipe . The spout itself has a plasticinsert with threads....

Tub spouts are pretty much interchangeable although you may find the replacement spout cannot be installed easily because the threaded copper stub does not extend far enough to engage the threads inside the spout.

Vita Bath, Paradis whirlpool tub waterfall spout leaking inside tub deck. Plumber has siliconed it, but leak remains. It seems the 2 piece spout is maybe a design flaw??

sounds like a design flaw or installation flaw. I would contact the MFg of the waterfall valve and see if they have a solution for the leak.
Silicone in something like that would be a temporary solution at best.

Tub spout, cannnot lift up lever for shower, has seized up, what can be done

The tub spout can be replaced very easily....
Check if it spins off (threaded) or if there is a allen set screw that you get to from the bottom of the spout....the spout will then just pull off....
They sell new spouts at Home Depot, Lowes, or Plumbing Supply houses....the universal spouts will fit either configuration...

My moen tub faucent leaks when i have t shower head on

If you are saying that water is still coming out of the tub spout while the shower is on that is not a big deal a rather normal. If it bothers you a lot then you will need to replace the tub spout as the diverter in the spout has gone bad or is going bad.

Now if you are saying that the shower is leaking behind the wall when the shower head is being used then the threaded joint at the shower head arm is leaking and will need to be undone and put new pipe dope on the threads and reinstall it or it may be just lose and if that is the case remove it and reinstall it anyway.

If the water is leaking behind the wall and the above is not the case you will need to get into the wall and see where the leak is coming from and take the necessary steps to fix it.

Hope this helps and good luck.

My Moen 90480 tub drain is supposed to be adjustable from 12 - 22 inches. The threads on the adjustable end of the connector are only 3 - 4 inches long and do not allow for adjustment to 17". How...

The height you are talking about has nothing to do with the threads it is change at the slip joint part of the unit this is the expanded part of the drain tee that the tube going up to the over flow fits into.
