spigot

    Hello Everyone, I'm hoping someone can verify how I should remove my hose spigot. When trying to turn off the hose, the handle broke off. I contacted a local plumbing supply and they're recommending that I bring in the old one to determine the length of the pipe necessary. I have a valve...

    So, thought I was unscrewing a stubborn broken spigot, but turns out I was wrapping the copper until is snapped... (pics below). It has a separate shutoff so no leaks, but the pipe then turns down into the cinder block before heading outside so it cannot be accessed the piping inside. Question...

I pulled the guts out of it today and turned the water on with no difference. The guts were 15 inches long so I...

    What is the best way to stop my outdoor spigot from rotating at the pipe when I'm opening and closing it? Due to renovations, I've connected the copper pipe to pex via a Sharkbite connection, which has obviously lessened the stability of the pipe. I've attached a copper-plated bell hanger on...

    Hello all, I have a problem with my cold supply line humming when I run my spigot that goes to my back yard. The spigot is the highest point in the cold supply other than where it branches off and heads up stairs to fixtures. The humming starts almost right when I turn the spigot on, and stops...

    Hi I live in rural Montana and obviously have well. It is 225' down and a sub. pump. I have 3 yard hydrants in my yard that were all working fine 2 nights ago. I went out to water the horses last night and no water at all at yard hydrant. Opened it, nothing... Went to other yard hydrants and...

    Water is slowly dripping out of the spigot at the bottom of my hot water heater. The water heater works fine, so I would just like to repair the leak. Somebody suggested capping the spigot with a copper garden hose cap, which seems like it should work. Only it's still leaking around the cap...
