View Full Version : loose tub spout
09-25-2004, 06:50 PM
I'm new here. I'm reinstalling a Kohler tub spout that slips onto the copper pipe and has a hex screw to tighten. When I removed it I scored the pipe, making a pretty deep groove by twisting the faucet trying to get it off. Also, when it came off the white washer and black o-ring came off. Have I broken it? Water leaks at the wall. Any suggestions on how to make it water tight?

If you don't have the rubber seal, you may want to get a new "slip spout"
It may seal with the new o-ring, if not maybe some silicone will help with the seal. :)
If you scored the tubing in the area where the "O" ring seals then you probably have ruined it and will need a screw on spout with a threaded adapter soldered to the tubing.

You can file out scratches if you haven't indented the pipe. You should be able to reassemble the o ring and white insert.
