Question about Home
I wanted to replace my Roman tub faucet because the handles continue to leak. They are about 13 years old. Underneath the tub I found copper piping instead of the expected hoses with disconnects. What is the best way for me to proceed?
This might not be a solution but i would recommend you get it done by a professional like i did just make sure u give them all the details before they come so they dont have to go back and forth costing more money as they are per hour basis hope this helps

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!

The only product I know of which will do what you ask is an item called Plast-Aid Acrylic and PVC repair kit. Google it and you will find the website. It is about $20. and it works like a charm. good luck

Sorry, the tub will have to pulled out to find out what is leaking so it can be fixed. There is just no other way UNLESS you can open up the wall on the blind side of the tube. (but its probably and exterior wall...if the house is vinyl sided, it can be done. If brick, you'll have to pull the tub). If you just wanted to convert to a tub only, maybe Bathfitters has an insert solution...

There could be debris wedge in the cartridge of the faucet. If you have tried pulling the cartridge out to see, and you are still having these issues, more than likely it is a defective cartridge; in which case it should still be under warranty. If you haven't tried this, then I would recommend doing so. Just be sure to turn water off to your faucet first.
