Delta Tub Spout


I want to replace O-ring from a brass adapter that is soldered onto 1/2" copper pipe. What size O-ring should I buy? The Delta Spout is old and not sold anymore. I don't want to remove the O-ring until I get a new one. The spout leaks into tub when we use the shower.

Got a picture of this spout?
Not a plumber, but the only O ring I've seen in a tub spout is used to seal around the copper tubing to keep it from leaking down the back side toward the wall, nothing to do with it dripping out the spout on the end.
If you can get the o ring off just take it to any hardware or plumbing supply house and match it up.

Call Delta----their service line is a good one---They can tell you and they just might sent you one for free----

Joe--Delta has a brass fitting that must be soldered to the copper stub out---very odd way to do a spout---but it does work well---

That one uses a set screw and an inside O-ring---the earlier ones were sweat on---I hated them----soldering in a finished tub and tile---what were they thinking?

If it is leaking out of the spout as opposed to at the wall the o ring is not the trouble. The diverter has probably developed some scale and does not seal off as well as it used to. Lime-Away to the rescue.

I'd just pop that off and head to the nearest auto parts store---they always have the best selection of O-rings
