Outdoor spiggot won't turn on
Posted by cookin7 on June 16, 2003 at 15:08:18:
I have 2 outdoor spiggots in my house that are on a seperate hard water line that branches off of the main line before it goes into the water softener. This hard water line splits at a 'T' and one direction goes to one spiggot and the other direction goes to the second spiggot. My problem is that 1 of my spiggots turns on and water flows but the second one doesn't do anything. The valve on the spiggot opens and shuts properly because I am able to insert a piece of 12 guage wire into it so I can tell it is open yet no water flows. There are no shut off valves between the 'T' and this spiggot. I'm really baffled by this. How can I not have water flowing? Could there be an obstruction in my 1/2" copper line somewhere? That seems hard for me to believe. Ideas and suggestions greatly appreciated.
