 Shower Diverter Assembly
Author: Smoovesavvy1 (MI)

My shower diverter broke, so I bought a new one. However, the new diverter does not fit onto the adapter that is fitted onto the pipe(nipple?) sticking out of the wall. I had no idea how to remove the adapter, and the only info I could find was a youtube video that said it had to be taken off with a torch, which I do not have access to. Also, the pipes(nipples?) that I see on every tutorial or video is copper but mine is iron(I believe) or steel. I just bought this house in April of 2016 and it was built around '69 if I'm not mistaken, so I'm not sure if this setup is outdated or anyhing. So, basically, I have a new diverter and new smaller adapter but have no clue how to remove the old adapter.

How about a photo of the adapter? If it is a Delta diverter a new spout will screw on to it.
