How to Install a Freezeproof Faucet

A step-by-step guide to protecting your exterior faucets from freezing and bursting

Vedat Bilik  attaches a frostproof outdoor hose faucet that delivers both cold and hot water, 
a boon in the winter when dogs—or cars—need to be washed.

 I think I have the perfect solution for you: a hot-and-cold wall faucet. You'll probably be using it fairly often in the winter, 
so a frostproof version is a must; the valves actually shut off the water inside the house, so there's no danger of the faucet 
freezing and cracking.  For more information & video



Installing one is fairly simple. Most people take off the existing spigot and use its
 line to supply cold water for the new faucet. Then they install a new hot-water line next to it. 
To do that, you'll need a tubing cutter; a hole saw, to drill through the siding and sheathing; 
enough tubing to reach an existing hot-water line; and a soldering kit or no-solder fittings.
 Use a silicone sealant to keep water from getting behind the faucet, and make sure to add a dedicated shutoff valve inside
 the house for the new hot-water line, in case of any future repairs.
