etxending hose bib via the valve body thread
I need to extend a hose bib so it's more readily reachable. Right now it's buried beneath a deck and is very hard to reach. The hose bib seems to be a sweat copper fitting with copper extending into the crawl space in a totally inaccessible location. So I'm thinking that if I remove the valve assembly from the current bib, maybe i can thread a male adapter into the top of the hose bib (where the valve was). I tried this on one valve at Lowe's and, by god, a 1/2" PVC mail adapter screws in just fine. Gonna try it tomorrow and just hope for the best. But if anyone knows about thread sizes for valve assemblies in hose bibs --- well, any info would be very much appreciated.
