Replacing my Roman tub faucet

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?

SOURCE: tub spout. Moen

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!

SOURCE: Lasco whirlpool tub leaks. Water runs out on

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.

Set screw is stuck. Any suggestions on how to remove it to replace the roman tub faucet?


to replace the roman tub faucet you have to expose the faucet under the deck of the tub. Most of the time builders do not install a door to do repairs. So expose the underside of the deck of the tub, turn off the main water outside then cut the water pipe for the hot and cold water with a tube cutter. At this point take a sawall and place the blade so the side of the blade touches the bottom side of the deck.
and cut all the way though the body of the stem.

Do all three and your done with the hard part. Install your new faucet and enjoy.

Hope I was help to you Rich

Dear Sirs, When lifting the handle assembly to use the faucet on model 7100 that has been on the sink for the past thirteen years, the water is leaking from that assembly kit. So the question that I am...


13 years , I would recommend replacing it. You basically got its lifetime out of it.Think re-model, I like to replace mine every 10 years or so.It's time to change the decor. It's actually easier and less frustrating than replacing the diffusor assembly. They are not easy to get off after 13 years & corrosion in inevitable.Your faucet could easily crack or break. You'll actually save time and can avoid a headache doing so.

How do I tighten the faucet handle. The handle is floppy and unless you put downward pressure on the handle when you turn it, it will continue to move from left to right


From what you have described it sounds like the stem in which the handle rests on is stripped and allowing to move from side to side.

Remove handle it has a set screw in the side of it and turn water off. Check the stem may be in need of replacing or the retaining nut that holds the stem down to counter top may be in need of tighting.
