Hose Bib Replacement in Plano

Dependable Solutions for Your Outdoor Plumbing

Outside every home, you can find something called a hose bib, which is the name for outdoor water valves you can connect a garden hose to. Over time and exposure to the elements, hose bibs can become old and tough to open and close. These valves are used for many things outdoors and an old or damage one can make these activities pretty difficult. When this happens, replacement is an obvious solution, though tricky to accomplish for the average homeowner.

If you need assistance with hose bib replacement in Plano, McKinney, Frisco, and Allen, At-Ease Plumbing team is here to help. Call (972) 440-5644!

Replacing a Hose Bib 101

As we mentioned before, replacing a hose bib can be tricky, particularly if it is aged or damaged. They generally connect to copper or galvanized piping in the wall and sometimes, they are even soldered on. The removal process must be done very carefully so as not to break or damage the connecting pipes. After we have successfully removed it, however, new hose bib replacement pieces do not need to be soldered on, which makes the replacement much easier from here. In some cases, the mortar surrounding the fitting is also advanced in age and may crumble. This can lead to leaks, so repairing that is an essential step as well. Oftentimes, we come across damaged hose bibs due to missing mortar around the pipes. To repair it, we can use a mixture of matching caulk and mortar to reinforce the seal and keep the connecting pipe securely in place.

At At-Ease Plumbing, we have years of experience removing, installing, and replacing water fixtures of all kinds, and we are more than happy to help you with your hose bib replacement.

How to Prevent a Frozen Hose Bib

One of the most common plumbing services we get during the winter is frozen pipes and hose bibs. If left undetected, frozen hose bibs and pipes can expand and cause severe water damage in your home. Prevent this from happening by winterizing your outdoor plumbing.

Some steps you can take include:

  • Turn off the valve of your hose bib and unscrew the hose
  • Tip the hose to drain the water out and store the hose inside your home or shed
  • Drain the water from the hose bib, make sure it is completely empty
  • Wrap the exposed pipes with insulation foam or other types of material
  • If you can, install a hose bib cover or get a frost-free hose bibs
