    Screw-On Spouts

    • 1). Turn off the water to the bathroom.

    • 2). Grip the waterspout and turn the entire spout counterclockwise to remove it from the threaded pipe on which it sits.

    • 3). Remove the old nipple (the pipe protruding from the wall) if it is not a copper pipe and is rotted out before installing the new spout. Insert an internal wrench into the pipe and turn the internal wrench with a plumber's wrench. Insert the new pipe and tighten down.

    • 4). Wrap the threads of copper pipe protruding from the wall with one layer of plumber's tape. This protects the threads. Screw on the new waterspout.
