Question about Plumbing
I need to know how to connect a new Roman tub faucet. I am trying to replace the original one because the 13 year old handles continue to leak. I was surprised not to find the standard hose connections under the tub. Instead I found copper piping. What is the next step for me?
1. Measure piping size with tape measure or read printed on pipe. 2. Visit local hardware store and take the faucet. 3. Tell them you need a tubing cutter and sharkbite adapters for the faucet you have. 4. Cut pipe with tubing cutters. 5. Push on sharkbite fittings. 6. Install faucet and supply hoses. 7. Take Bath.

take the valves out and check the valve seats use flashlight if they look good then very carefully put your finger in and feel for any burrs when in doubt just replace the seats this is always a good practice when replacing valves

SOURCE: i have an american standard two handle kitchen faucet. it started leaking at the center and now under the counter off the center bolt. No connection to tighten there. Do I need a new faucet, this one
there is a chance that one of the internal seals has worn possible do to a build up of calcium from water. what type of connection do you have, is it just push together? likely one of the seals in the centre spout where the faucet breaks between the top and bottom of the sink unit. it may prove easier to replace the faucet but i would have a look to see if i could get to the seals, don't forget to isolate the water supply first though (experience there). hope this helps in some way.
