How to install a Moen Adler 82402 on non threaded copper pipe for tub spout

The kit has a converter to install on a non threaded pipe but, how long should the pipe stick out from the wall, how far should it go into the converter? It's very difficult to get the pipe to go into it and only fits in about 1/2 inch.

Should be 3 wing pipe nuts. One at basin base, and one on each end of you elbow. They should all turn counter-clockwise to remove. The one on the basin base likely and commonly has pipe thread tape on it.

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.

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.

How to install tub spout for delta model 174924 shower assembly

Normally, tub spouts are screwed onto 1/2" NPT galvanized pipe. I was unable to pull the spec for your particular tub filler, but I haven't found one yet that doesn't. I don't know why the builder didn't rough it in this way, but it will have to be fixed because there isn't any way to use anything but a threaded fixture (your other options are really only compression or soldered/sweated and you don't have the space behind the tub filler to do either of these). There should be a fitting in the wall (attached to a stud) that converts from the 1/2" copper pipe to 1/2" NPT galvanized. This piece needs to be added behind the wall so that you can attach your tub filler.

About the gap, it's generally a good idea to leave space around the pipe anyway so that minor temperature or humidity changes in the wall don't put stress on your plumbing and cause it to crack over time. That's one of the reasons why tub fillers are flared at the back (so that it covers the gap).

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!
