In response to Re: leaking outside faucet
: How do I repair a leaky outside faucet? When turing the faucet on, water sprays out of the attachment on the wall of the house.

Look very closely at the faucet when you turn it on very slowly. Where does the spray come from? The attachment on the wall of the house is simply solid pipe coming from the cold water at the water heater area inside, to a point where it can turn to get outside. Is there trheads cut into that pipe where they screw into the faucet? Turn off the water, remove the faucet, apply pipe thread compound or teflon tape tightly to the wire brush cleaned threads, and put the faucet back on.
