Green thumbs of the world rejoice! Summer is right around the corner, and that means you get to slip on your gardening clogs, grab your spade, and set to work with new planters and pots. If you have a large outdoor garden, you’ll likely need a water hose bib, the connector, or a spigot, that connects your water hose to the outdoor faucet. It’s an important element that could make or break your ability to properly water your plants, which is why we at A-List Plumbing offer outdoor water hose bib repairs and replacement services in Lake City.
Hose bibs are all about connectivity. Their sole purpose is to enable you to hook up a water hose to water your plants, fill pools, and do other things around your yards that would require water. It’s easier than toting around a watering can or bucket, but a broken hose bib could be frustrating and mess.
The most common problem associated with outdoor hose bibs is leakiness. In some cases, the hose bib wasn’t connected correctly or securely, resulting in leaks that could be fixed quickly. In other cases, the hose bib is damaged or badly designed, which means you’d need a replacement before connecting a hose to draw water from beneath the ground for dispersal across your yards.
The Lifespan of the Average Outdoor Hose Bib
Everything has a lifespan – outdoor appliances included. Outdoor hose bibs are often subjected to the elements of nature, so their longevity depends on their damage from inclement weather and general use. Typically, an outdoor hose bib can last 10 to 15 years, but a sheltered bib could last two decades or longer.
Wear and tear is a common reason for outdoor water hose bib repairs and replacement services in Lake City. To learn more, call A-List Plumbing at (206) 202-8290.
