Common Hose Bibb Issues

If your home or business’s outdoor hose bibb is not running as well as it used to or you have had one for decades but have not kept it maintained, a variety of issues can arise that require professional assistance. Not only can certain problems with your hose bibb affect your water bill, but it can even flooding in and around your property if not taken care of right away. Don’t wait until you have a major issue on your hands, call Rick Ray & Sons Plumbing, Inc. for quality hose bibb maintenance, repair, and installation services in Springfield, IL.

Here are some of the most common problems that can occur with the outdoor hose bibb that you should be aware of:


Our winters in Illinois are brutal, and even hose bibbs do not stand a fight against below-freezing temperatures. Your spout can freeze, causing damage to your faucet and plumbing lines. Make sure to detach your hose before the winter to avoid damage!


Leaks are one of the most common issues that come with any faucet, even hose bibbs. If you have a crack in your plumbing life or your valve isn’t tightened properly, your hose bibb can begin to leak and cost you hundreds of extra dollars on your water bill.

Broken Handle

A broken handle may not seem like a major issue, however, without a way to shut your water valve off leaves your hose bibb much more susceptible to bursting. Call our experts for inspection and repair services on your outdoor hose bibb.

Low Water Pressure

Low water pressure may be a sign that there is a leak or break in your hose bibb’s waterline, or that there is some type of obstruction in your pipes that is not allowing the proper amount of water to get through to the spout. Call us for pipe inspection services!

No Water Coming Out

If your handle is not broken but no water is coming out of your spout, this is very likely a serious issue that could be caused by a blockage or complete break of your water line. Be sure to call our experts as soon as possible if you believe that your water line is in jeopardy.

Faulty Pipes

Faulty pipes connected to your hose bibb can create a mixture of the issues mentioned above. It is not possible to tell if your hose bibb’s piping system is the issue without proper inspection, so be sure to call and schedule an appointment or if it is an emergency, call our 24/7 plumbing hotline.
