    Thank you for the link to that site, Hayzee- I will do some measuring and see if any of those will fit nicely with the new tub spout!

    Thanks for that. The worry I have about water getting inside the wall is that given that the hole in the shower/tub stall is quite larger than what was needed to allow room for the copper pipe to go...

    Did the dye test - no blue dye enters the bowl from the tank.

    Also- would a...
