Can't remove broken PVC pipe from bathroom wall...need to install new faucet

My bathtub faucet fell off. It was connected with a plastic pvc pipe which of course is broken. I was advised to purchase a NIPPLE EXTRACTOR to remove the pipe remaining in the wall before I can install a new faucet. Well, that doesn't work...and I am tired of taking a shower in my son's not-so-clean shower. HELP.

Fix broken graywater valve and pipe 2002 r vision 5th wheel trail bay

find a caravan shop and they will probably have a range of valves that will fit. Most of the piping will be PVC piping that can be replaced and joined using a PVC glue available at the caravan shop or from a good hardware shop.

Can you fix a broken pvc pipe

more specific please. so your saying that the actual faucet sticking outta the wall is PVC and not a Brass for plated brass pipe? Also what type of valve do you have. Is it a single knob valve that you rotate to turn on as well as adjust your water temperature, or is there 2 knobs one for hot and one for cold?

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.

I have a 3" pvc pipe that has a nail hole in it inside the wall of my family room. We have opened made a whole in the drywall and found the pipe and hole but now we need to know the best method to repair...

Get a rubber splice joiner for that size of PVC Pipe. Just cut the pipe with a hacksaw and maybe another inch for clearance to put the joiner over both pieces of pipe and apply clamps. If you forget to put the clamps on then just unscrew them completely and wrap around the sleeve and tighten. Got mine at a plumbing supply, Lowes should have them.

I broke the pvc pipes that transport the water to the jets. I need replacement pipes. Where do I get those?

the PVC pipes used to plumb bathtubs can be either rigid PVC pipe or flex PVC pipe. You may use either kind and is usually available at your local Home Center.

I have two bathrooms directly under each other. The hinges on both cabinets (under the sink) are rusted and the pipes going from the wall to under the sink are also rusted. There are NO LEAKS ANYWHERE in...

You can't stop condensation or humidity in the house, especially in the bathrooms. A few choices: replace the hinges, or oil the hinges with WD-40. Install a vent fan (even though you have a window) and replace the pipes with PVC pipes. Metal drain pipes will always rust, because they drain water. Replace all under sink drain pipes with PVC

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.

Broken pvc plumbing for bathtub faucet.

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.
