I used a Dremel tool with a tile
cutting bit to make the hole
bigger, but just a little
smaller then the chrome plate of
the new Delta Monitor tub and
shower faucet that I installed
in it's place.
This is the new Delta monitor
faucet I installed with in the
small hole I made.
See Delta Monitor
This is the new faucet with the chrome
plate installed note how nice it covers
the enlarged hole I had to make.
WARNING soldering in a tight place like
this is very dangerous, I'm very good at
what I do, I keep a fire extinguisher at
arms length and a squirt bottle fill of
water. Even with these precautions A
fire can be started that I would not be
able to put out. if an ember dropped to
the floor behind the tub or shower unit
and ignited wood shavings that are on
the floor left by drilling holes, I
would not be able to extinguish the
fire. There are other possible potential
fire hazards. It is best to have a
Licensed Master Plumber replace your
faucet for you,
I know many plumbers who would not even try to replace a
faucet with so limited space, and sometimes it is not possible even for me, in
this case you can use a
to replace the faucet.
if you were able to remove the nut,
