Most older faucets have a separate hot and cold handle; some have a third handle between the hot and cold to direct the water flow to the tub or shower head. These faucets can usually be repaired. If your faucets can't be fixed or you want to modernize your bathroom, follow the directions in this section to remove the old faucet and install a new faucet. Like most plumbing fixtures, the faucet comes with specific installation instructions — be sure to follow them.
Basically, you install the new faucet by reversing the steps you took to remove the old one.

Put the faucet in position. You may have to enlarge the opening in the wall to accommodate the new valve stem body because it may be larger in diameter than the one you replaced. Mounting hardware is supplied by the manufacturer.

Replacing a Tub or Shower Spout and Faucet

Install the transition fittings.

Install the transition fittings on the ends of the old piping. If you're working with galvanized pipe, use a fitting that screws onto the end of the pipe and provides the proper connector for either plastic or copper on the other end. If you have copper or plastic piping, a simple coupling fitting joins the old pipe to the new.

Run the hot and cold piping to the faucet.

Starting at the transition fitting cut and fit the pipe to the valve. Cut the pieces of pipe for both the hot and cold. If you're using copper, disassemble the pipes and carefully clean the ends of the pipes and inside the fittings. If you're using plastic, mark the fittings and pipes with a marker so that you can reassemble the pipes quickly as you glue the parts together.

Install the tub spout.

You may be able to use the old pipes that lead from the faucet to the tub spout. The length of these pipes is given in your installation instructions. If you can reuse these pipes, apply pipe dope to the threads and install the pipe with a pipe wrench. Otherwise cut and install new plastic or copper piping.

Install the shower riser pipe.

The shower riser (supply tube) is attached to the top of the valve. The challenge you face here is that you can't turn the pipe if it's attached to the wall with a drop ear elbow. This isn't a problem with plastic or copper, but can be a struggle with galvanized steel. Look through the hole in the shower wall where the shower arm pipe came out. If you see an elbow that's nailed or screwed to the wall framing, you can't pull this pipe out of the wall cavity. Try to loosen the screws or nails with a long screwdriver, which allows you to rotate the shower riser pipe and thread it into the new valve.

Install the escutcheons and handles. The faucet comes with instruction on how to install the trim rings that cover the escutcheons. Follow these instructions to complete the installation of these parts and the showerhead.

Test faucet for leaks. Open the shower faucet and then turn the water back on. As soon as the water flows out of the tub spout, turn off the water. Check the joints between the faucet and new piping. Turn on the water and start the shower. If the diverter is in the tub spout, check for a leak in the pipes leading to the spout and the shower head.
