Installing outdoor faucet using pex attached to outside of house.

Google: freeze proof faucet. Hit images to look at them. Depends if you have pex pipe in the house and what type. Some use copper rings and you can rent the crimper at HDepot and DIY. Others use the expanding system Wirsbo and you need Pro tools for that. You can also use Sharkbite fittings from HDepot to adapt to it. Google: SharkBite fittings for more info and CAREFULLY read the install info.
