Hose Bibbs: Water Control For All Exterior Projects
Located on the outside of your home, a hose bib or outdoor faucet, or spigot helps connect an outdoor hose to your house’s water. This element helps the water to run smoothly through your home piping and into the hose attachment to water plants, garden, wash the car, or use as a way to cool off in the summer.
S&B Plumbing can help maintain and install proper hose bibbs that can help you have clear access to water outside your home. Our team knows the complexities of plumbing like the back of our hand. Trust our team for all your residential interior and exterior plumbing needs.
More About Hose Bibs And How They Help Your Home
Most residential hose bibbs are just a mechanism that helps to control the pressure and flow of interior water to your hose on the outside of your home. They have a valve that opens and closes to let the water flow at the rate you desire. You then attach your hose to the threaded spout so you can move the water as needed.
Hose bibbs make it easy to use the water from your city’s system that is already being pumped into your home. Using this water helps you get more out of the monthly cost you pay for water.
You will also need a stop valve indoors in case of an emergency or if your hose bib is damaged. Hose bibs can also deteriorate over time, so it is best to have them replaced once you notice problems. Having a quality hose bib can help make outdoor tasks much easier. Not only do you need a hose bib to use your water outdoors, but it needs to be installed correctly.
S&B Plumbing can help replace and maintain outdoor spigots and hose bibs. With 25 years of plumbing experience, we can help ensure that all plumbing fixtures work to the best of their ability. Our technicians can help install a new hose bib in a short time and in one visit.
Prevent Freezing Pipes, Pumps, And Hose Bibbs
Leaving water inside your pipes or hose through the winter can cause them to freeze and lead to you needing to replace the hose bib. You can prevent freezing by disconnecting the hose from the hose bib before temperatures drop, draining the hose bib, and draining the shut-off valve.
If you leave the valve open inside the hose bib during the winter, when water drips into it, it will be able to flow out easily instead of freezing and expanding causing issues for pipes and other plumbing.
If your hose bib or pipes do freeze, make sure to turn off the water if the pipe bursts and try to soak up any water you can until a restoration expert can come and help you assess the damage. S&B Plumbing can help maintain and inspect your pipes and hose bibs before and after the winter season to help prevent frozen lines.
