Hi there,

I'm looking for a replacement tub spout that will fit on a 3/4" pipe. We have a threaded connection that has about 1" of pipe coming off the wall. We have replaced all of the hardware in the shower (shower head, handle, drain cover) to an oil-rubbed bronze color instead of chrome. I'm having trouble finding a tub spout that will work with our connection. If we get an adapter to reduce down from 3/4" to 1/2", will it work with a tub spout with a 1/2" IPS connection? We also are having trouble finding a tub spout with a rear threaded connection (threading connection nearest to the wall), as most tub spouts are front connections near the diverter. Any suggestions for a product that will work in the color we're looking for is helpful. Thank you. See attached photos.

I saw that spout but it is front end threaded and we're looking for rear end threaded since our pipe coming out of the wall is short. I can't find any rear-end threaded 1/2" ips spouts in that color.

I did find a rear end threaded spout from delta in the oil-bronzed color but it was a slip-on fit. Is there an adapter I can get that will reduce our 3/4" pipe to 1/2" and change the type of fitting on the other end so we can use the slip-on fitting?

It has an adapter. It says it’s good for 3/4” IPS with the adapter.

I read the directions before I posted it.

Okay thanks. I was just worried about the length inside the spout to where it threads on because we only have 1" of pipe coming out of wall. We'll order it and try out. Thank you!

You may need to adjust the piping. You may never find a spout that fits exactly like your old one. That’s the way the cookie crumbles
