Replacing shower diverter spout
So our diverter spout has been binding and jamming up since we bought the house in 2011.
I've put it off this long but really need to do something about it and I have a few questions.
1 : I'm assuming this just unscrews from the copper pipe coming out of the wall? What are the chances it will put up a fight and I'll wish I was dead as I pull the tile off of the wall to replace a kinked pipe?
2: Is there a specific diverter spout anyone would recommend? I'd like something that will hold up for years and don't mind paying more for it.
3: To caulk or not to caulk? I've seen some of these caulked to the tile, and other times not. I would assume caulking is the way to go but would like other opinions.
4: Caulk? What kind of caulk do you guys use in a tub when you want a job to last?
