How to Remove a Moen Tub Spout

    • 1). Look at the spout and determine what type of Moen spout you have. There are two spout types: slip-fit and IPS (iron pipe size). Slip-fit spouts slide over a 1/2-inch copper pipe and fasten with a setscrew on the bottom. IPS spouts have female threads for attaching to a 1/2-inch iron pipe with male threads. Both spout types have a cutout underneath them and adjacent to the wall. A cutout with an opening for a hex wrench indicates the spout is the slip-fit type.

    • 2). Loosen the setscrew on the slip-fit spout with a hex wrench. Turn the wrench counterclockwise. Gently pull and twist the spout off the copper pipe. Use caution not to loosen any pipe connections inside the wall.

    • 3). Loosen a Moen IPS spout by twisting it counterclockwise with your hands.

    • 4). Remove the Moen tub spout from the 1/2-inch pipe.
