Adding an Outdoor Faucet

Installing a frostproof faucet is easier than dragging a hose around the house

As you haul your garden hose around from the backyard for the hundredth time this year, you may wonder what it would be like to have a garden faucet in front of the house, where you actually need it. Luckily, help is at hand. Using common tools and a basic layout, professional plumber Carl Vonnoh walks us through the installation of a brand-new frostproof exterior faucet. This article also highlights the anatomy of a frostproof faucet (also known as freezeless or frost-free faucet), including the inner workings of each plumbing component and how it helps eliminate the frozen and burst pipes that plague outdoor faucets in cold regions.
