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 right next to the connection in the basement - and I think I have enough room for me to get a wrench in there to work on this. I just want to make certain I don't damage the pipe.



When looking at the picture of the valve - I'm assuming I need to have a wrench on the nuts on either side of the Teflon tape ?



Any suggestions on doing this without screwing it up ? Thank you

use 2 wrenches one to unscrew the frost free hose bib and one to hold the female threaded fitting to ensure you don't damage the pipe if you want.

It looks like there is tape on the threads so you should be able to remove it without too much effort.
