I'm in the process of remodeling a bathroom and am getting ready to tile the walls surround the tub/shower. I'm stumped on how to connect the bath spout.
The spout looks like this:
As you can see, it's all one piece and from what I can dig up online, it's intended to slip over 1/2" copper pipe.
The problem? I don't have a copper pipe extending out.
Here's what my shower valve side looks like:
About 4-5 inches inside, is a screw-on outlet (sorry - that likely isn't the right terminology). Here's a picture:
So my question comes down to this: How can I connect that spout to that outlet with minimal intrusion to the wall (so I don't have to reapply the whole hardie board slab)? Is there some sort of adapter for connecting copper to brass?
