Adding another hose bib.


I plan to add another hose bib to the outside of my house. I want one on the side of the house to eliminate any hoses and hose reels in my patio area.

My question: Is it as simple as adding a "tee" connector to the existing pipe leading to my current bib, and running a pipe to the side of the house?

Then I would have a bib in the patio area "just in case" and one on the side for the hoses.

Cast iron pipe and a crawlspace to work with.

Thanks in advance!

yep simple as that!! make sure you use a frost free hose bib. depending on where your putting it your gonna need a hammer drill(stone) unless you just have siding. once its all hooked up just use some expanding foam to fill in the excess hole.

I was hoping it was that simple!

I'm in an area of California that does not freeze or frost. Is a "frost-free" really necessary (in case of "freak weather")? I know that neither my front or backyard bib is not frost-free......I'm sure it couldn't hurt, but do I really need it?
