How to Change Bathtub Hardware

Don’t hire a contractor or builder, because replacing bathroom hardware is easy! Hardware consists of metal parts, like the knob on a door, the latch on a window, and even the flusher on a toilet. You will need tools to replace your bathtub’s drain, spout, and shower fixtures, including a wrench. Sealing putty, pliers, and a screwdriver, will all be essential tools for replacing hardware. Tools and hardware can be found in all varieties at a local home improvement store or from a wholesale dealer. Once you have purchased the wholesale items you need, you are ready to be your own contractor.

  • Remove the old drain and thoroughly clean the exposed area. Place plumber’s putty around the opening. This equipment, like caulk, is used by many builders to create a good seal. Start by screwing the new drain in by hand, and finish with the universal drain wrench. Be careful not to cross thread it. Wipe away any exposed putty, and you are done!
  • Bathtub spouts need to be twisted off or unscrewed, though some will need to be both unscrewed and twisted off. If your spout has a screw, it will be located on the bottom of the spout. Be sure your replacement spout is of the same variety as the old spout. Once the old spout is removed, install the new spout in the same fashion.
  • To remove the old shower fixture, grip the pipe coming out of the wall with pliers. Wrapping the pliers in cloth is recommended to prevent damage to the surface of the pipe. Use additional pliers, also wrapped in cloth, to grip the shower head near its base. Hold the pipe firmly in place and turn the shower head. Use the same equipment to twist your new shower head on until you meet resistance.
