Replacing a Tub Spout

A simple to follow guide for removing and replacing a bathroom tub spout.

This article will help determine the type of tub spout you are working with and how it is removed. There will be a small hole in the bottom of the tub spout, if you see a screw, you have a CC (Slip Fit) tub spout. If there is no screw, you have an IPS (threaded) tub spout.

IPS (Threaded)- Threaded directly onto the pipe from the wall. 

  • Unthread the tub spout counter-clockwise to remove.


No Hex screw


CC (Slip Fit)- Requires a 5/32" Hex wrench

  • Loosen the Hex screw until the tub spout slides off.
