So it is an old hose with galvanized iron pipes. We successfully added an extender onto the end of the old threads which are thin and getting close to being shot. We made a good connection and now have solid pipe to fix the new hose bib onto. Problem is - the hose bib bracket is about one and half inches from the brick exterior wall. Has anyone seen a mounting dome that can be attached to the brick and provide a surface to secure the hose bib to. I have a picture
I've never seen a manufactured product but have seen some home made using wood such as cedar or redwood. Cut it square, router a design on the edge. Drill a hole for the bib. Mount the block to the brick and finish installing the bib as normal. Works good on vinyl or beveled siding too.
