In response to Re: frost free hose bibs
: Thanks for all the responses. The issue came up because the home inspector mentioned it in his report, and the buyer is in Missouri and hasn't seen the house. I don't know if it matters, but the access to the shut off valves are in my basement which is fully finished, carpeted, heated, etc. There is no need for crawling in the dirt or getting a flash light . The only thing sticking outside of the house is the bib itself by about 2". The pipe it is connected to is flush with the exterior siding. I only question the need for it because all of the older houses around mine appear to have a similar set up, and nobody , in ten years, has complained to me of any problems. Thans again-Mac
