In response to Re: Tub Spout Pipe - Water flows from it - HELP!
: The tub spout was dripping, then came the hot stream, then more or less like it was on low. I replaced the whole stem to the hot in tact, have made no adjustments to the stem assembly.
: Still stream pours out of spout. Took off spout to reveil pipe sticking out off wll, the spout itself is not leaking - BUT the pipe is flowing freely.
: What is the best thing for me to do at this point? Husband NOT a plumber of even amatuer nature so HELP!
: My tub is a hot round on left and /cold round on right diverter /spout reg ol grade.
: WHAT WOULD make spout pipe flow even when tub is off?? have a trap door to pipes opposite wall there are no pipe leaks on joint leaks.

: Thank you so much for the help!

PUTTING IN HOT OR COLD STEM
Do I have the stem set all the open (screwed down to tip that goes in pipe/in wall)
or do i have it set on off (screwed up towards the end that you put handle on)
See when I replaced the hot it seems I had the outer section (seat? casing on stem)
down towards the tip that goes in the pipe wall - IN 3 MONTHS WE HAVE DESTROYED THE
WASHER AT THE TIP OF STEM THAT GOES INTO WALL.
IS this my leak issue above???
