(probably a really dumb) plumbing question
Hi! I'm taking out my tub/shower combination and replacing it with a shower only, with just one showerhead, a handheld on a slide bar. I was planning it this way to save money on plumbing, so I wouldn't have to switch out my valve. I'd like to have the supply elbow come out at the place where the tub faucet is now.
However, since my water will only need to come out at one place (the supply elbow), and currently water comes out at two places (tub faucet and shower head), am I going to have to change out or otherwise adjust the valve anyway to turn off one of those outlets?
Is there some way to remove the current showerhead arm and plug it up (or would it never leak anyway).
Please forgive me if this question seems ridiculous, I tried searching for an answer online, but I didn't know how to phrase the question and so I didn't get helpful results.
