In response to Re: Installing a tub spout
Dear Deb, my slip fit tub spout just leaked everywhere. How are these Moen Asceri diveerters supposed to be properly assembled to the copper to prevent leakage? There is a screw and a hole for an allen wrench. Inside is just a white plastic ring for around the pipe. Do I use pipe dope or anything?

: : I installed a new shower mixing value(bathroom remodel) and I am getting ready to extend a piece of 1/2" pipe for the tub spout. Any words of advice on how to measure the exact length that I should extend the pipe so the spout will fit snug once the wall and tile is installed?

: : I am using 1/2" male threaded fitting at the end of the copper pipe. Copper pipe is the way to go here as well correct?

: : Thanks in advance.

: I would install a slip fit diverter spout, if I had copper out of the wall. I'm not crazy about screwing a tub spout onto a copper adapter when I have no way to hold onto the copper that I am attaching to. It's fairly easy to twist the copper, especially trying to get that last little bit of turn so the spout is straight...
