Bathtub faucet leak. Please help

When changing a bath tub faucet is turning off water and simply opening all the faucets enough to drain water so it doesnt leak inside my wall too much after water line disconnect? Or do I need to open the low point drain to get all the water out first?

I think I'd turn the water off, open the faucet you're changing, then open the low point drains to get some more water out of those lines, You can hold a towel under the connections just in case some drips come out, then you should be good.

Bathtub faucet leak. Please help

I'm trying to I stall new faucet. Cannot get it to stop leaking from cold water side. Can anyone help? I can't use water until I figure this out. I've installed it 4 diff times . Wrapping with plumbing tape. Cannot get to stop dripping. Looks like it's dripping from the back of nut. I then noticed it looked like cold water side was missing a gasket inside water line.. Found in package little rubber gasket. Added it in on the last install. Is that what it's fore? Not sure I put it in right. Still leaking. So frustrating. Pics attached of leak and gasket . Faucet came with no instructions and of course customer service is closed on weekend.

Is it leaking at the teflon tape or somewhere else? The gasket goes into the elbow and creates a seal between the faucet and the elbow.

Yes, that cone washer fits inside the connecting nut. The small taper side goes toward the faucet. That's what seals the connection. Be very careful that you get it in there perfectly square. They will leak if they're askew or damaged.

Not leaking at Teflon tape. Leaking from back of nut exactly where drip is. I can't seem to slide on the washer inside the nut. So I kinda just shoved it I. There and tighten down. I'm guessing it's not on right. May e I need to lube it to get it in right?

Should the cone washer be fit on tight before tighten nut or do I kinda set it in there and let the tightening of the nut seat it on properly. Can't seem to get the cone gasket on right..

It's a cone washer, take the 90 fitting loose and fit the washer inside with the cone facing outward, as you tighten the fitting onto the fixture ( male pipe thread) the cone will flatten and make a seal. You'll need to hold some pressure on the fitting to seat the cone and careful not to cross thread as the cone may offer a little initial resistance. Start it with your fingers so you can feel it engage squarely.

Do I just set the cone washer in and let the tightening do the work? Or should the cone be fitted tight on there before tighten waterline?

The hot water line that still has gasket inside. Attatched pic.. I think maybe different. Looks like flat ring at bottom of cone. I found step cone washer online. Do you think I need those instead maybe? I removed faucet again and the black cone washer seems a little deformed now. Doesn't seem to go down far enough.

I'm starting to wonder if it's the correct connection from the faucet to the supply lines. Do you still have the old faucet? Do they look identical as far as connections?

Faucets look identical in the back. I went to ace hardware I think I got it fixed. I literally bought another cone washer basically the same size but orange.. pretty much identical to the black But was smooth inside where as the ones the came with had some kind of grooves . I was able to slide it on.i don't know if you can see grooves but I guess they made inner diameter to small. The cone gaskets that came with are slightly too small.

Beware buying dura faucet. The gaskets that come with are not made properly. At least they do t fit my lines. Also threads are a little longer. If you have tight space like mine in wall it presses the hose up against the wood. Pic attatch pointing. I will leave it open for a few days to monitor. I have paper towel wrapped around to check for drips.
