I am trying to replace the faucet in my tub,
But the brass fitting it screws onto is larger than all of the standard size one's.
When I measure the plastic thread hole in the old one, it measures 1 1/4" (inches)
Thank you for your question, JJWeb! RP17453 connects by either sweating onto 1/2" C.W.T. (copper water tube) or threading onto 1/2" IPS (iron pipe size). If your previous tub spout was installed onto another manufacturers adapter, this will need to be removed before using this tub spout.
Best regards, Edward

this model faucet has failed for the second time. 6 mo ago it leaked back past the o ring and threads and into the wall, damaging my ceiling. I replaced it with another delta. it just did it again. Is there another one with brass threads internally?
Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing a leak at your Delta tub spout. We do have another tub spout that works with the brass adapter. The part is RP19820. Here is a link to the unit on our website:

will the spout work for my situation explained below?
My 1/2" copper pipe extends exactly 4" from the wall and has threads on the end. threads are 1/2' long. will the spout thread onto the pipe and be tight against the wall and be facing down?
Thank you for your question, Jack. The tub spout will thread onto a 1/2" pipe that extends 5/8" to 1 5/8" from the finished wall or sweat onto a 1/2" copper pipe that is 2" to 4".

Delta RP17454 Nipple Length?
The instructions say the pipe should extend from 1/2 to 1 1/4 from the finished wall. My pipe is about 1 5/8 from the wall. It appears to work fine and I can see no leaks. There was plenty of length inside the spout for the o-ring to still seat.
Is this acceptable or could there be issues that I am not seeing?
Thank you for your inquiry! This Delta Pull-Down Diverter Tub Spout RP17453 is designed to sweat onto a smooth copper pipe extending 2 - 4" from the finished wall, or thread onto a 1/2" IPS nipple extending 5/8 - 1 5/8" from the finished wall. There should be no issues with your install.

4" copper pipe. Will this work?
The measurement of the copper pipe from the finished wall to end of the nipple is exactly 4". Will this spout fit? I'm assuming my setup is standard and many people have the same setup.
If this spout won't fit, what are my options for a"pull down diverter" style tub spout?
Thank you for your inquiry! This Delta Pull-Down Diverter Tub Spout RP17453 is designed to sweat onto a smooth copper pipe extending 2 - 4" from the finished wall, or thread onto a 1/2" IPS nipple extending 5/8 - 1 5/8" from the finished wall.
