 Bath Tub Spout Repair
Author: lamontieo (TN)

Hi Guys,

What do I need to fix this?

It started out as the shower head wouldn't turn on so I took the nozzle off and it was damaged. The replacement 1/2 and 3/4 were to small for the much larger than Slip-on spouts at the hardware stores. So I removed the plastic piece off the nipple and exposed this pipe in the pic below. Threads are too corroded and can put a replacement on. Any idea's what to do next? I never have done pluming but I am trying to teach myself.

If you buy the Delta RP17453 spout, it will have that part and the spout.

Thank you. The image seems to match the part pic from amazon. I think this will work. Hopefully lol

Fill the void at the wall with silicone caulk before you install the spout.
