ideas on how to move outdoor water source


so i'm trying to think of the best way to get a faucet/hose outside of here.

the previous owner built a sun room and the pipe is inside the sun room. i want to be able to have a hose on this side of this house just outside the sun room.

any ideas... something DIYable?

Good luck with this one.
Sure looks like your on a slab and have skum of the earth stucko on the outside of the home.

Please go back and add your location to your profile.

The easyest way to patch this may be on the inside, instead of messing with the stucco.

Slab: Yes
Stucco: Yes
Location: Vista, CA (North San Diego)

sigh.. i was thinking that too...i dont want to tear up the stucco and have to re-stucco. maybe a 90* elbow and drill a hole thru the wood where the sliding door is attached and then patch that hole up with silicone or something. not sure how up to "code" that would be... but im not looking to sell anytime soon.

mainly im looking to just rinse off my wetsuits and fill the fountain on this side of the sun room.

Your going to have to open the wall inside the house.
Cut that pipe of and install a 90 degree fitting and run the pipe inside the wall to the new location, then another 90 to turn it outside.

Don't understand Joe's comment about the stucco. Looks like typical CA stucco to me. Something wrong with it I am missing? Joe, stucco like that is on 90 percent of the homes in California I would guess.

Anyhow, since there is no crawl space and just a slab? Plumbing is in the wall. As Joe suggests you will be best to cut a section of your inside wall out to get to it. Then splice in or extend to put the hose bib where you want it. You may need a right angle drill to drill holes in the studs for the pipe.

Cut drywall patches, tape, mud, prime and paint. Sounds ominous but will not be that bad. It is easier to repair and match the drywall on the inside than the stucco on the outside.

From the outside you can use a hole saw for masonry where the pipe will extend outside so you do not chew up the stucco. Remember to stop when you get to the wire mesh. Cut it out of the way, then continue through the siding with a regular hole saw or paddle bit.

Not a bad idea to seal it against bugs but your holes should be close to the outside diameter of the pipe.

Fit your hose bib.

Make sure to strap your plumbing addition to a joist or something so it does not rattle and hammer on you. Make sure you are not drilling into any wire runs.

remove the wall behind the exsisting hose connection...where the hose connection is inside.... repipe it into the room behind bring it to the stucco area wall just outside the sliding door and pop it out there...forget about cheating it thru the frame or under that flooring....no crawl or basement

ideas on how to move outdoor water source


yeh most homes are stucco here in cali. i just didnt want to have to tear out the stucco and patch the stucco.

buuutt... i didnt think about going from the inside! drywall is much easier to fix up as you said.

buuut.... i have a fish tank just on the other side of that wall. space might be tight to work on cutting out and patching up drywall and re-routing pipe. we'll see.

thanks for the tip! ill post pics once i get it going.

so... a question about the water tho....im guessing id have to shut off the water at the main and then uncap that existing pipe to drain it or something like that?
