I tried to replace a leaking shower spout. I purchased an universal spout from home depot and installed it. It still leaks. After google it on internet and found out spout should be slip-on type like this one:
But the cooper pipe coming out from wall is damaged seriously when I removed the old spout. Below are the pictures:
Picture 1 - The cooper pipe
Picture 2 - The enlarge detail for damage
I am thinking to smooth it with emery cloth or sandpaper. Do you guys think it can fix the problem? Or I should tear down the wall to replace copper pipe?
What should I do?
Any helps or suggestions are appreciated!!!
