I just finished tiling an old tub surround and the new tile plus backer board added about one inch in new thickness so the end-threaded tub spot no longer reaches the threads on the pipe coming off the wall. (See pic which doesn't quite show the pipe!) I am hoping this is a common problem (?) and there might be a simple screw-on extension or something but local Lowe's was no help. Do I need a plumber to sweat on a whole new piece or is there an easier fix?? Thanks!
