How to remove this bathtub diverter spigot?




Last Updated February 19, 2016 01:09 AM

I'm trying to remove a bathtub diverter spigot, but I can't tell whether it is a screw-on or a slip-on (with a hex bolt at the bottom). My spigot has the notch where a hex bolt would normally be, but when I look inside the notch, I can't see anything but a metal plate, a plastic tab, and some white silicone. Does this mean that I have a screw-on or do I have to remove something to get to the hex bolt inside the notch? I can turn the spigot some with my hand, but I think the silicone is resisting the torque. I don't want to just start wrenching away without some better information.

Any idea on how to remove this type of spigot? Thanks!

you have to slide the white plastic tab towards the mouth of the spigot. its essentially like a quick fit pneumatic fitting. its a spring loaded compression fitting. sliding the plastic tab forward against the spring pressure releases the...

Replace that Leaking Bathtub Shower Diverter for Good

Replace your bathtub shower diverter quickly and easily. Nearly everyone has, at one time or another, used a shower where the diverter valve is worn out or broken, causing water to drip out of the tub spout, and weak water pressure from the shower head while you are showering. It is bothersome, and the water that leaks out of the tub spout pretty much just goes to waste “down the drain.”

But did you know how easy it is to fix this problem? Watch this video to learn just how simple and inexpensive making this repair can be on your own…no need to hire someone to do it! And you can save around $100 by doing it yourself ! We show you:

You should be able to simply unscrew the old spigot/diverter and replace it with a new one... replacement diverters are sold at any home improvement store and are relatively cheap. Depending on the age of the plumbing, you should have no issues with a universal faucet. I had to buy a custom adapter for mine, because it was original plumbing and the thread patterns have changed sometime within the last 50 years...

We don’t usually use the bathtub faucet as often as we do with the kitchen sink one, which means that we should not have as many problems with it. But every now and then they occur nonetheless and you have to deal with them. Don’t worry, you don’t need a professional every time. You can do this.

Issues Happen with Faucet

But before you get to work, you need to know what problems you might encounter. There are generally two main issues that will occur in time with bathtub faucets.


If you know how a diverter works, you know that blockages are pretty easy to come by. But, fortunately, fix is equally easy.

Rust accumulation

This will usually happen in time, as the metal corrodes on the inside, causing your faucet to malfunction. This problem is a bit trickier and you might want to consider buying a new piece.

richard wysham: Looks like an old Harcraft.

DIY Mary: I have something very close to your bathtub stem removal, though my is just and old two handle shower. Either way, where did you get that wrench from. I looked at the big box store and online, what is it called. Your link just took me to the socket removal (which is good) and the puller, which I do not need at this point, as I have the handles off. My channel locks will not take off those silver round covers, so now I am stuck on getting out the stems. Thanks Mary

Hannah and Yaniah Jones: Is there a difference with doing the hot side stem? I strip the stem using vice grips on the stem to turn off the hot water. Hopefully I don't need to change the seat.

thrawn_84109: Thanks, very helpful for me!

Water, Water, Everywhere!

Welcome to the fun with liquids page! The information here is mostly based on my own personal experience. Working with plumbing is pretty straightforward and usually isn't terribly dangerous, unless you gouge yourself with a screwdriver or drop a wrench on your foot. However, improperly installed or poorly repaired plumbing can lead to your RV filling with water (or other far more disgusting substances!) so it's important to do the job right the first time. Some of the suggested RV modifications require you to be at least a little handy... Don't undertake any project beyond your capabilities.
One of the best things about an RV is it's ability to provide all the comforts of home even when you are miles away from civilization. Key to our comfort are simple things like running water and indoor toilet facilities. Any tent camper can tell you how much fun it is to make a 1/4 mile trek to the outhouse at 3 am in a pouring rain,...
