Broken pvc plumbing for bathtub faucet.

Last night my 3 yr old grabbed the bathtub faucet, and proceeded to use it to lift himself out of the bathtub. He ended up breaking the faucet clean off. The remaining pvc is still sticking through the bathtub/shower wall. I need to replace the pvc tubing coming out of the wall. The only way that I can see to accomplish this is to remove a section of the drywall on the opposite side of the wall; so, that I can gain access to the plumbing joint to facilitate making the repair. Am I right in my thinking? Please let me know.

If you have tiles in the bathroom wall, the answer is yes!
it is better to go fromthe back, where there is drywall.
since PVC is glue on, you have to cut out the pipe and reconnect.
make sure the bathtub faucet is not broken, and can be reuse.

The control & pump you have is no longer being made. (It hasn't been made for well over 5 years)
Your new system will include the following items:
· New Pump
· AirStreme Control box and topside control
You will change out everything from the old system with the new system.
The new topside panel replaces the one on the top of the bathtub and the pump will hook up to the same plumbing as the old one.
No cutting PVC pipe to get this installed.

I have a Lasco whirlpool spa SG72ACSK that is new and never used. I would like to add a heater to this unit, is it possible to do so? How?


It is always possible to add a heater to any jetted bathtub at any time.
What you need to find out that is if the tub is plumbed to each jet with rigid PVC pipe or flexible PVC pipe.
If it is plumbed in flex pipe then the Tee heater will be easier to install however if it is plumbed in rigid PVC then I would suggest a inline pressure heater that you will install in the water line any place after the discharge of the pump.
Here is a link to a installation instructions so you can see how all heaters are installed.

Cartridge replacement


Should be able to order new one at any plumbing supply. Remove handle, then with pliers pull out old cartridge, and push in new one till it seats, place handle back on.

Delta T2738 Deck Mount on Jacuzzi Tub. Hot Water side leaking.


With the detailed part number you have, I would just walk into stores like Home Depot or any plumbing store and they will give you the exact parts you need. They are not expensive and a lot of them are standard parts and come in kits.
Good luck.

Leaky Tub Faucet (Antique Reproduction)


sometimes check the faucet screws they come loose or if they are old you might want to replace the whole diverter, take them to lowes or home depot and have them guys in the plumbing department hook you up. trust me you are opening a can of worms with rubber valve seats just get new ones. Make sure before pulling you cut off water supply to them.

Bathroom sink needs new drain, leaks under counter


Is it a new sink? Most of the time if it's new you'll have to get more pvc pipe because the new tail piece that comes with the new faucets usually is either longer than before or shorter. Yes you can get another tail piece or you may be able to by a longer pvc piece to to hook up the the metal tail piece. Make sure you have the plastic seals inside the pipe where they attach together or it will leak. Once you have it all together close your stopper and fill the sink with water and then pull the sink stopper and watch for leaks if it dont leak then it wont leak.
