Here is a quick test to see if your hose bib has been damaged. Head out to your outdoor faucet and place your thumb over the opening. If your thumbs don’t cover the entire opening, then you can use your palm. With the opening covered, turn on the water by turning the handle.
A functional and undamaged hose bib should force water with enough pressure to push away your thumb or palm. If you can hold the water in with your thumb or palm, then there is a good chance that there is a crack somewhere in the piping. In the event that there is a leak, you will want to locate the leaking as soon as possible.
Locating the Leak
Before you get to any repairs, you have to locate the damaged point. It could be that the faucet itself is broken. Though a damaged faucet would be evident in the thumb test. It could also be that the pipes are damaged. In any case, finding the culprit can be difficult if you do not have experience or tools.
Start by inspecting the walls around the hose bib. You want to check the inside walls as well as the outdoor ones. Look for water stains, mold and mildew growth, condensation, and wet marks.
If you cannot find the leak, then call a professional plumber to put your plumbing in reliable hands. The folks at Rooter Hero Plumbing are always happy to help folks in the community.
