replacing old faucets in shower

Posted by gh on February 1st, 2003 02:00 PM

is it possible to replace faucets in the shower without having to replace the pipes in the wall. we have the original faucets from 1960. After removing the screw that holds the handle on, you can unscrew the handle take it off and then you have the chrome shaft that can be unscrewed and exposes the guts of the faucets. You can see where the guts are screwed into the wall pipes after removing the chrome shaft, but is it possible to get new faucets without ripping everything apart? When you go to buy the new modern faucets they come with the whole works where it looks like you would have to rip out the drywall to replace it! WE have the three faucet shower, hot cold and one that turns the shower on.
Any advice? Or is it time to call a plumber!
