Advice on Adding a Residential Outdoor Spigot


I am wanting to add an outdoor spigot on my home. I have attached pics of the water line that I am wanting to come off of. The pipe that I am wanting to come off of is circled in the pictures. The spigot would go straight to the outside of my house. The white pipe to the left in one of the pictures is my pipes for my sprinkler system.

Advice on installing the spigot, please. The spigot would be exiting the house through the concrete foundation.

I am pretty comfortable doing this job but just wanted to see if I could get any advice on performing the task prior to starting it. Thanks!

Who ran the pipe for the sprinkler? PVC is not approved for water distribution piping.

CPVC, PEX, or copper

For your bib, I recommend exiting in the rim joist. This seems to give you a wood surface to anchor to rather than concrete.

You can cut into the pex, install a tee and pipe to the bib. There are multiple joining systems for pex- including "sharkbite" fittings. Just pick the one you like
