    Threaded Tub Spout Issue

    Updating Delta bathtub spout but wrong nipple

    hi all, First, thanks for the approval. This is my first post. I’m certainly a novice when it comes to most things plumbing. I wanted to update my tub spout with a new trendy Delta but unfortunately the nipple pipe coming out of the wall isn’t right for the provider adapter. What’s my move...
