help, outdoor hose bib leak
Posted by gb on January 21, 2004 at 17:55:40:
One of our outdoor hose bibs is leaking from the spot (more than dribbling) even when it is turned off all the way. I've read that the washer probably just needs changing but due to some circumstances I'm unable to fix it for a few days. Would it be ok to just hook up a hose with a regular garden sprayer attatchment (the kind where you have to squeeze a lever to water the garden)to the leaking hose bib for a few days or longer? We are getting lows in the 20's lately. Would doing this cause any problems with the pipes, water pressure or freezing, etc.? If not and this is an ok temporary fix, could I just cover the hose bib, hose and spray attatchment with a blanket? Thanks for any info. or advice!
