Leaky Hose Bib

Leaky Hose Bib

Do you have a leaky hose bib, also known as an outside water faucet or water spigot?

Spring is the time of year when people first try using their outside hose bib and find out it’s damaged and leaking water. If this has happened to you, the probable cause is, damage caused by water that didn’t drain out and froze. This causes the outer pipe to crack during the winter.

Replacing Hose Bib Damaged by Freezing

The hose bib will only leak when it’s used and has water running through it. By shutting the bib off you can stop the water from draining into your house until repairs are made.

The typical repair for a hose bib damaged by ice is replacement.
