    Shower Faucet

    Is there a way to switch this setup up without taking out a part of the wall? The cheap plastic handles keep snapping off and it drips. I didn't know if there was maybe a way to remove the faucet and gain access to the water lines behind it through the re existing opening.

    Depends on the age & style of faucet. The spout might unscrew from the base & then the H & C should unscrew from the supplies. Then the wall plate can be removed to access piping & new install.Can you make out a brand name anywhere on it? That would help determining removal.
    Is there shut-offs for the H & C in ceiling below or above to isolate the faucet? That would help in case anything snaps while disconnecting it, which is likely if it is an older one. Don't need flooding anywhere.

    I changed mine out this summer. Mine were very old, I had to change everything out. If you have to do that, the shark bite fittings are awesome. Total plumbing game changer.

    I would agree with the shark bite stuff. It's in my mom's house. I practice here for when I build my own, maybe save some money putting things in myself

    I'll take a look when it's not in use. It was in the house when we got it. One of those modular slap together deals. I've found things in these are not the greatest.

    What's the wall like behind the plumbing? Cutting an access hole in sheetrock isn't as bad as it sounds.

    My access was in a closet in the hallway. Wanted to change the shower knobs, but where it was so old, had to change the valve too. It was all hard copper pipe. I just cut it all out, put in the new valve and connected everything back with shark bites and the tyvex plastic pipe that goes with it. Very simple compared to trying to solder copper pipe and not burn the house down.

    Should be able to ,, remove the knobs, then the spout, then the back panel. Should be able to then do things in reverse order.

    I agree I just remodled one bath because I twisted the pipe off when trying to change the washer on the handle. The shark bite fittings and the new PEX lines make it super easy. good luck

    If you know what it is the valves, seats and spouts are all replaceable from the front. I just did that in one of our bathrooms. Like others said there is usually a dry wall behind it but if it is old I would not be surprised that half way into the project once you remove the plate in the front you find the tiles are no longer held to the wall and you might be getting into a bigger job.

    It's a bedroom wall behind it. There's no name on the faucet. There was a tag in the shower but apparently someone peeped it off. It's not real tile. It's a plastic type getup that just drops into place.
