Besides the new spout, there are some materials required to complete the installation. A screwdriver or hex wrench is needed depending on the spout style, as is a putty knife. A tube cutter may be needed if the plumbing stub out is too long, and steel wool is good for cleaning the pipe. Silicone caulk is another item that’s needed to install a bathtub spout.
The cost of tub faucet installation depends on a few factors. The brand and type of faucet is one of the main variables that can affect the price. If the old one needs to be removed, this may also add to the cost. If the new spout requires modifications to the tub or plumbing, this can add labor time and significantly impact the project cost.
Homeowners can save time and hassle by hiring a professional contractor to install the new bathtub spout. Without proper training and experience, it’s easy to make mistakes with DIY projects. Improper installation of a tub faucet can cause leaks, which quickly leads to water damage, higher utility bills and further repairs. Working with a pro ensures the faucet is installed correctly, which prevents these issues.
