Best way to Install bathtub spout
Posted by MarkDIY on December 29, 2003 at 09:23:28:
I've installed a new bathtub and have stubbed out a 1/2" copper line from an elbow where the bathtub spout will be. I will then cut it off and solder on a male threaded connection and screw the spout on. Is there a better way than this? Also, what is the best way to measure where I need to cut the stubout so the spout is not too short or too far from the wall?

I thought about putting in a brass elbow and then screwing in a piece of galvanized pipe. Is that a better route to take than copper? The copper seemed easier and I had all the fittings.
