We are closing out 4 Habitat for Humanity homes. The water supply lines are CPVC. When we did the walk throughs with the homeowners, several of them asked us to fix the loose spouts in the tub. The spouts clamp onto the CPVC that comes through the tub wall via an allen head screw.
Last night we opened the wall in one of the units, braced the shower valve and pipe from the spout with 2X4. It improved the movement of the spout somewhat, but not enough. The problem seems to be the flexibility of the CPVC.
Is there another way to firm up the spouts or do I need to open the walls of all the units and switch the pipe to the tub to copper?
