About Tub Spout Replacements

It’s pretty simple: if you have a bathtub, then you need a tub spout to fill it. For most bathrooms, a standard bathtub spout will do, but you really should consider dressing up the master bathroom.

After all, your choice almost certainly will stick with you (and your bathroom) for years to come, defining the look and feel of your bathtub for just as long. This is precisely why we offer only the best tub spouts available from such well-known brands like Moen, Delta, and much, much more!

With that in mind, are you looking for a tub spout replacement that fits your bathroom precisely? Then choose PlumbersStock, because with over 400 options, we are sure to have the right style and finish you seek. We also offer complete tub faucet kits.

Choosing a Bathtub Spout

Though tub spouts seem quite straightforward, we offer enough options to make your head spin. With many of them sporting different qualities, functions, and styles, it can be hard to decide what will fit your needs. Obviously, this makes your decision just a bit more difficult. So, to help you out, here are just a few of the products we provide:

  • Tub Spouts with Diverters<: Diverters are those little levers that you pull up in order to change from tub to shower function, making these among the most common tub spouts out there. After all, because most tubs these days offer both tub and shower functions, you need some way of changing which one you use, and this simply is the easiest way to do so. Choose this type if you sport a combo tub/shower.
  • Tub Spouts without Diverters: We also offer quite a few bathtub spouts that do not have diverters, which are perfect for standalone tubs. Do not purchase if you have a shower attached to your tub, or if there is no other way to switch flow functions.
  • Roman Tub Spouts: If you have a roman tub, you will certainly need a roman tub faucet (which is similar to what you would see in a sink). These are perfect for the classic, standalone roman tubs, offering both class and function! Avoid for all other types of tubs.

How to Replace a Tub Spout

Though most tubs will have slightly different installation practices—that should be outlined with the directions included with each product—the process is basically the same, regardless of what product you choose (with a few differences depending on if installing a tub spout with diverter or not).

Slip-on Spouts

  1. Remove caulking around spout.
  2. Locate screw on underside of spout and unscrew it.
  3. Pull faucet out, turning as you do so.
  4. Clean off the pipe coming from the wall

  6. Screw back in.


  • If slightly loose: Unscrew with hands.
  • If tight, use a pipe wrench to unscrew faucet. Should unscrew just like a normal screw.

  • Apply thread sealing tape and caulking.

Types of Tub Spouts

1. Diverter or Non-Diverter

A diverter tub spout will have a lift rod that you pull up and push down on to divert the water between the showerhead and tub spout.  A non-diverter tub spout will not have a lift rod (generally, used in a tub only or a three handle tub and shower configuration).

2. Metallic or Non-Metallic

Metallic tub spouts are made of metal.  If you tap on the tub spout with a metal spoon, it will make a "clanking" noise.

Non-Metallic tub spouts are made out of non-metallic materials.  If you tap on the tub spout with a metal spoon, it will make a "thud" sound. 

Moen manufactures tub spouts in different lengths to accommodate the reach needed for the tub.

How to Replace a Tub Spout That Is Stripped

By Amy Rodriguez

A stripped tub spot can lead to water damage if not repaired.

A home's tub spout sees a lot of action through the years; it supplies the tub with water and can become a rack for a washcloth. Over time, the threads within the spout's interior can become stripped, causing the spout to spin freely in place on the protruding copper or metal wall plumbing. If the spout is not repaired in a timely manner, water can leak back into the wall and cause significant damage. A careful removal procedure will ensure a rapid and proper replacement of the spout.

Hand-turn the tub spout in a counterclockwise direction. Use a slight pulling action as you turn the spout to engage the remaining stripped threads on the spout. Discard the stripped spout.

Clean the spout's pipe of any debris. Brush debris from the pipe's threads with a wire brush. Wipe any residual dust away with a rag.

Remove the pipe's end nipple with a pipe wrench in a counterclockwise direction, if the threads are damaged. Many times, a stripped tub spout will indicate that the pipe's end threads are also damaged. Only after cleaning the pipe end will you be able to see the threads clearly for evaluation.

Place thread tape around both threaded ends of the new pipe nipple. The nipple's size will vary, based on the home's original construction. You can take the removed and damaged nipple to a home improvement store to match the size for your tub.

Place the new nipple onto the wall pipe and turn it in a clockwise direction to affix it to the main plumbing.

Squeeze a generous amount of silicone caulk around the pipe's opening in the wall. The caulk should seep slightly into the entire circumference of the opening to create a seal between the wall and pipe. No water or other substances should be able to enter the wall space. Allow to dry.

Place a new tub spout onto the protruding pipe and turn in a clockwise direction until it is flush and tight against the wall.

Turn the hot and cold water on with the tub's fixtures. Allow the water to run through the spout to make sure there are no leaks.



  • It is not necessary to shut the main water valve off for this repair. However, you should hand-tighten the hot and cold water fixture handles before beginning the repair to make sure that no water flows during the repair process.
