Replace Exterior Hose Faucet

Replace Exterior Hose Faucet

In recent years, outdoor faucets (sill cocks) and a water spigot have undergone two great improvements. First, a frost-proof sill cock (Figure A) puts the faucet's .
Steps: First locate the main water shutoff valve and turn off the water. Open the spigot and allow the water to drain. Now remove the defective spigot. Clean the pipe threads with a brush. Wrap the pipe threads with plumber's tape, starting at the base and working up. Install the new spigot and tighten by hand.
An outdoor spigot allows you to connect a hose or water feature to your home's water supply without having to run a line from a sink or tap the main water pipe.
Outdoor water faucets may simply wear down over time. Fortunately, replacing an outdoor water faucet is an easy task. Turn off your home's main water supply .
