Hose Bib & Faucet Services in Akron, OH

Leaking hose bibs can cause a lot of damage. The worst being flooding your basement and the least being increasing your water bill. Our two most common calls for hose bib services are repairing faucets that drip outside, or to replace freeze-proof models that have frozen and burst inside the wall. Usually, it was because the hose bib wasn’t installed properly. Our team of skilled plumbers have repaired and installed hundreds of hose bibs. They consider all the factors that go into a long-lasting, leak-proof installation. Factors such as does the existing hole through the wall of the house have the proper pitch? Will the footprint of the new hose faucet cover the existing hole in the siding? Does this hose faucet need a ball valve inside for isolation? Does the house have a brick exterior which may require changing the hole pitch?

Hose Faucet Questions & Answers

Q: My “freeze-proof” hose faucet keeps bursting. Why?

A: This is usually due to an improper installation, where the hole through the side wall of the house was sloping the wrong way and the installer didn’t take the time to correct it.

Q: The top of my hose faucet leaks every time I turn the water on. How do I fix that?

A: This may be a faulty anti-siphon device. These usually can be replaced but the make and model of the faucet must be known in order to get the proper parts.

Q: How do I winterize my hose faucet?

A: Frost-free or freeze-proof faucets (if installed properly) don’t need to be winterized really – just make sure you disconnect the hose outside. If you don’t have a frost-free hose faucet or worry yours wasn’t installed correctly, the best bet is to shut off the valve inside the house that feeds that faucet. Usually, it is within a few feet of where the hose faucet exits the house.

Q: Do you install hot and cold faucets for the garage?

A: Yes, we do. We can replace the one you currently have or even install a new one at a new location outside your house.
