Insalled a ceramic shower, with typical Moen faucet / shower head / foot wash (spout). I cut the lead pipe to the spout too short, and now it leaks out the back when the level is lifted to send water to the shower head.
To solve the proplem, I need to lengthen the lead pipe to the spout. I cannot use a normal external union, since it will be too thick to slide the spout back over.
I feat that I may have to knock out a couple tiles to get at the elbow of the lead pipe, remove the too-short lead and attach a new longer piece.
However, before I do that I'm wondering if there is such thing as an internal union that I could use to connect an extension?
Any other solutions?
Many thanks in advance for any advice.
