Replacing an Outdoor Faucet

Is your outdoor faucet leaking or broken?  Some are easy to repair by just changing a washer, but most of the time it is best to just replace it, as all the parts are out in the weather and will corrode over time.

There are many different types of outdoor faucets made for your home, before getting a replacement you will need to determine what type of connection you have. The most common are sweat (solder) on, and threaded. Threaded faucets come in both male and female threads and in both 1/2″ and 3/4″ pipe sizes.

Need some guidance to replace it?
