Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "What is a 'loose' key?"
A. Instead of a handle there is a slot for a square key to be used to operate the hose bibb. This is usually used in commercial conditions where vandalism is an everyday concern. With the loose key hose bibb we include a key.
Q. "I noticed that some of these outdoor hose faucets say, 'Compression style (special threads)' - what does that mean?"
A. The compression fit hose bibbs are designed to attach to 1/2" nominal (5/8" o.d.) copper pipe using a brass compression sleeve (ferrule) and nut. The Special Threads of the valve and nut are not the same as standard 5/8" o.d. compression fittings and cannot be interchanged. Please note: a minimum of 3/4" of pipe length is required for this compression style hose bibb to attach properly to the copper piping.
Q. "Why do many codes require vacuum breakers on hose bibbs?"
A. There is a very small chance that you could have your hose in a puddle of dirty water while the water main (or well pump) is shut off or the water main/line broken. Then a negative pressure could arise and suck this potentially bacteria laden or toxic water back into the water main. Yes, it is a slim chance but it can and does happen. Vacuum breakers prevent the water from being able to be sucked back into the hose.
Q. "Do you offer volume discounts on these hose bibbs?"
A. These hose bibbs are limited to stock, and are already priced at their deepest discount. However, we do offer quantity discounts on many of our drinking-water safe hose bibbs.Where applicable, the minimum quantity for the discounted price is noted in green text underneath the product listing. Discounts are shown in the shopping cart.
Q. "Will these valves (hosebibbs) and vacuum breakers hold up to freezing (not break)?"
A. Any water in ANY brand of faucet (even if the walls are many times as thick as what we offer) will break if subjected to freezing conditions. The strength of water expanding during freezing is much greater than any valve costing less than many thousands of dollars. If you plumb the freeze-proof hosebibbs so that water will/can drain out of them (install horizontally or down, not facing up) after you shut off the faucet then they will not break during a freeze. Do recognize that the inner end (the part in the wall) of those freeze-proof hosebibbs must be protected from freezing. Our standard vacuum breakers shown can break during a freeze.
Q. "I can get other brands of hose bibbs at lower prices. Why should I buy these?"
A. Sure there are cheap hose bibbs on the market, but these are top quality hose bibbs. These prices are very low for this quality. If you are looking for durability and reliability these are the best value.
Q. "I put one of the standard hose bibbs with the extended nipple in your on-line shopping cart and the description showed an abbreviation of SOT. What does the abbreviation SOT mean?"
A. The abbreviation SOT means shank on thread.
Please note: While we strive to ensure every product we label as "Made in the USA" really is 100% made in the USA, it is also important to understand that sometimes manufacturers make changes to their products, or for various reasons may receive components or materials that they would normally purchase domestically from an overseas supplier - and they don't necessarily let distributors (like us!) know that they've changed something about the product or where it is manufactured.
If you receive a product that PlumbingSupply.com® says is "Made in the USA" and the product states it was manufactured elsewhere, please contact us. We will happily replace or refund your purchase to your satisfaction.
