How to remove and install a bathtub faucet? Answered

I need instructions on how to remove an old bathtub faucet that no longer diverts water to the shower properly. I also need instructions on installing a new bath faucet.


They are fixed with nuts on the underside of the bath, You need to get under there (with a torch perhaps) and locate the nuts. The new one should fit in the same way, or you'll need to connect new fittings. Have a look and see what you've got, post some pictures if you can. L

Oh how it depends... Some of the house I've lived in have had the tap fittings brazed directly to the pipe leading up... Also after years the hard grout will be nigh on impossible to move, thank god I like my taps...
