I have a Freeze Proof Woodford Yard Faucet next to my potting shed. I'm in the process of filling in the area where the faucet is located, and when done the faucet will be about 3 feet to low. Is there a easy way to raise this freeze proof faucet? Can I just buy a longer stem and extend the outer galvanized pipe? Or should I just go ahead now and dig it up and replace it with a longer version?

What would you do?

The downside to installing a new one is digging 3 feet down right next to the 12 x 30 foot potting/storage shed. The other problem is if I do dig up the old one, I will probably want to move the location of the hydrant. That would mean trenching about 25 feet to get it closer to the tractor barn. Oh, problems problems problems.

Thanks Guys for the input.
