This outdoor plumbing job may seem simple, but pros caution homeowners unless they understand what they’re doing, against replacing a faucet. The faucet, to begin with isn’t the sole component the plumber will focus on. Occasionally, it entails going to a wall or beneath the house to work on the piping behind the faucet, and these intricacies will impact the ultimate cost.
Also, a poorly installed hose bib or conduit could lead to a tiny leak inside your walls that no one will notice until there’s significant damage.
Replacing a backyard faucet is a critical plumbing task, not just a fast handyman fix. It’s always a great idea to employ a plumber that knows what he is doing.
