Copper piping? Tub faucets

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?

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.

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.

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

On new Moen shower faucet, when I turn on faucet, water drips from shower also.


The faucet was installed upside down.
The shower riser pipe in the wall is to short( the distance between the faucet and shower head).
One of the biggest problems is if your shower faucet was installed with Pex pipe to the tub spout. Pex pipe will restrict the flow and force the water back up and out of the shower head.
The tub spout must be piped with at least 1/2 brass pipe nipples and fittings, or 5/8 OD. copper pipe and fittings.
Hope this helps, if you further questions please let us know.
