Pipe size for hose bibb

I will be replacing the cold water piping in my basement soon. The existing line is a combination of 1" galvanized and black pipe which I will replace with 1" copper. There is one existing hose bibb and it appears to be fed using 1/2" black pipe. I intend on replacing this branch as well as adding another for a total of two exterior hose bibbs. Can someone recommend a size for these branches? 3/4"?



Well, now, there's what's right and what's right and never the twain shall meet.

Pipe size for hose bibb

While it is possible to find 3/4" hosebibs, most are 1/2". Unless you are going to be using both hosebibs at the same time, I would go with 1/2" lines to them.


If you have never made a mistake, you haven't done much.
