The first step to replacing a garden tub faucet is to remove the existing faucet. Replace a garden tub faucet with help from a longtime plumber in this free video clip.
I'm Terry with Towers Murray Plumbing, here to show you how to replace a garden tub faucet. Okay, first thing you want to do, remove your handle. Now, each faucet is a little different. Some handles will come off all as one piece. This particular one, you have a handle, and then you have a hub, which should unscrew. And, there's your trim that you can take down to match. Next thing is in your tub spout or garden spout. There should be an Allen wrench screw either in the front or the back side. Loosen that screw, and your spout will come off. These items you're going to want to take with you to the supply house to match up, because there are different brands. So, you'll need these to match up. Now, when you're working on a faucet like this, if you have major problems, a leak above or below, if the spout's leaking, you can usually repair that with some new cartridges. If you've got a leak underneath the tub, you'll have to have access to get underneath there. At that time, it's probably time to call a plumber or a professional to come out and give you a hand.
