Hose Bib Replacement or Repair a Leaking Hose Bib?
Usually, your plumber can repair a leaking hose bib by replacing the rubber washer, applying new waterproof tape, and tightening the hose bib elements. If your hose bib has a crack in its body, or if there is extensive damage to the faucet or valve seat, replacing the hose bib will be more cost-effective. Your plumber can quickly complete the hose bib replacement so you can use your hose bib again. At Puget Sound Plumbing and Heating, we always try to find the most cost-effective and affordable solution for your hose bib problems. We won’t ever recommend hose bib replacement unless it is really necessary.
