PVC through brick to outdoor tap


Will spare the details (will want to start drinking if I go into it)-
but previous owner of house had someone repair a leak to outside tap... and this person replaced the piping heading to the tap with PVC.
So if a person want to use the hose/ tap, you must very cautiously, but firmly, grasp the 2" of PVC protruding from the brick to stabilize things while turning on the faucet (which, of course, is metal).
Also, the person who made this repair mortared around the pipe (I guess because he had taken out 5-6 bricks to make the repair to begin with)...
I am amazed that the pipe has survived this long without cracking.

Is there anything that can be done to correct this without ripping out the brick and replacing the PVC?

Re: PVC through brick to outdoor tap


Most spigots have a flange on the face to mount to the wall, as shown below. If your spigot does not have a mounting flange, replace it. You could make a spacer out of PT wood -- mount the wood to the brick, and the spigot flange to the wood.

But if you would prefer to have copper, I don't see why you would be doing anything to the brick. Cut the PVC pipe and rip it out. Its not going to stick very well to mortar, and if worst comes to worst, you could drill the old pipe stub out -- its only PVC.

A long masonry bit 1 inch then a wood bit 3/4 inch should do the trick.

Don't even need the masonry bit.
3/4" PC is 1.050 OD --- 3/4" copper is .875 OD -- only need to cut thorough plastic.
Similar situation if its 1/2" PVC
