hose bib isolated


Recommended Posts

If you touch them, they will leak. [:-weepn]

Yup, I have one in my house that I shut off every winter and when I turn it on in the spring it leaks into the basement and I have to tighten the locking nut. The seats get funky in the old valves and will likely not seat again when you close it, thus a drip at the hose bib. Make a note that it was off and you did not operate it.

Same here, only I call it a packing nut.
