Shower body


Hey Ron, I am about to install the tub and shower body, I am running 1/2 inc copper to the shower head. On the tub filler, should I use gavanized pipe with an elbow, or should I use copper as well? If I use copper, what will I need beside an elbow? Thanks.

If the spout is a slip spout use copper drop ear 90 swt x swt

If the spout is a screw on spout, use FIP x Swt adaptor and a brass nipple for the stub out.

Don't use galvinized.

Okay Ron, Thanks but what's a FIP, I know the sweat part. Female what? You keep forgetting I'm not a plumber. Thanks
