What is a Hose Bib?
Often located in the garage or around the outside of the home, a hose bib is a faucet or spigot that can connect to a yard hose. Installing frost-free hose bibs is a small but important part of maintaining your property’s exterior value.
When Do I Need to Have My Hose Bib Repaired?
If your hose bib leaks from the valve when you connect a hose and turn on the water it may be time to replace the unit. Leaving it like this can result in water damage along your foundation. Some leaky valves can be repaired, but usually the whole unit must be replaced.
What Causes a Leak?
When cold weather sets in over the winter, it can warp the fitting. This is why it’s important to both invest in a top-quality, frost-free hose bib with a vacuum breaker and always take the proper steps to winterize your hose bib.
