I see it. It is Bib in the thread title and Bob in the pic title. It is just an all-thumbs typo error. Yeah, I see that a lot, too.

The old pipe on the right is tarnished from so many years in a damp environment. Yeah I see that quite a bit. [:)]

Oh, you mean the backwards valve?

He can winterize the house and have some water left in the bib for ice cubes.

Steve, you are seeing this a lot? By the law of averages, it should only be 50% of the time.

...bleeder on wrong side leads to repairs like the one seen on the left.

Did the plumber not turn the valve around to guarantee a future call?

"Plumber"? I assume you mean the guy that owns a torch and a way to get to the big box store to buy the stuff so the valve can be installed wrong.

Probably the same guy that did this:

I thought it was bibb.

I think you are right. In my experiance, architects are typically bad with grammur and spellling. Myself includded!

Merry Christmas to those that celebrate!

OK, it's a 'bibb' if it's under the 'dinning room'.

Happy Holidays and y'all take Scott's advice and keep your hose bibs warm. [:)]

I've always called them sillcocks.

Hee, hee,

Wait till he goes under there, turns off that valve and then opens that bleeder expecting it to pee just a little bit. It's going to look like a scene from a Laurel and Hardy movie.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!
