Copper pipe length for RP64721 tub spout
To install a slip on tub spout RP64721 what should the length be of the copper pipe coming out of the wall? Right now it is too long so I need to cut it (5"), but I put the spout on to try it and it seemed like it stopped after about an inch, seems like it should go further into the spout to me.
Hi Derek, Thank you for your question. When installing the RP64721 slip-on tub spout, the tubing should be cut 1 ½ – 2 ¾” from the finished wall with a tubing cutter. Prior to inserting the tube into the adapter, the end should be chamfered free of burrs (on outside of the tube) to prevent cutting or nicking of o-ring. Do not over-tighten set screw.
