Tub Spout
by: Lesley posted: Tueday - March 21, 2017
I replaced ceramic wall tile behind the faucets and 
spout in my tub area. Tiling is done and when I went 
to screw on the tub spout, the pipe coming out of 
the wall (with the threads at the end) only extends 
3 3/4" which is the exact length of the spout to the 
threads. The old tile installation was caved in 
behind the spout which broke the tiles. Can I buy a 
tub spout with a set screw and make that work?
