|In response to Re: New Sillcock with threads|
: Two of my outdoor sillcocks have corroded to the point where I can't screw the hose to them. I have purchased two new sill cocks with threaded ends. They look to be the same that are alread on the house. I want to replace the sillcock only by simply unscrewing the old one, cleaning the threads, applying some teflon tape and installing the new sillcocks. Will this work? Do I need to solder these or is the teflon tape enough. May seam like a stupid question but I'm no plumber. Thanks for your help.
In cold climates, outside frostproof sillcocks, may have 6" or longer extensions, which make replacement a bit tougher. Terry
