I was recently doing some for for a customer who had an additional problem with an existing outdoor water spigot. The spigot wasn’t installed level, and the inside portion was lower than the outside portion. In addition, the plumber who installed the spigot didn’t properly seal the opening around it.
Unfortunately, this caused water to be trapped inside, which froze during the winter, and cracked the spigot. When my customer turned his outside water on in the spring, water was everywhere and he flooded his basement.
When you need to have work done, please make sure that you use someone who takes the time to do the job right.
