We are in the midst of selling our 1875 home and had an inspector tell us the bathroom tub spout is improperly installed because the spout is below the tub rim-cross connection. Although we we upset that the inspector was so hard-nosed about this, we felt we should comply.
To remedy the issue, a the spout was turned upside down and a copper pipe was attached to the end. The water spout is now above the tub rim. This was the only way to keep the unique original hardware and resolve the inspectors issue.
Do you feel this solves the issue? The water flows nicely from the new spout, there are no leaks, and it still has an old-time feel to it.
Please share your thoughts.
