Common Issues with
Outdoor Hose Bibbs

When to Call an Expert Plumber

Believe it or not, it may be hard to spot an issue with your faucet without it staring you in the face. However, many faucets requiring repair still function, just slightly less reliable than normal. Here are a few of the most common issues with your home or business’s faucet that requires professional attentional from a certified plumber:


Our winters in Illinois are brutal, and even outdoor hose bibbs do not stand a fight against 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 outdoor 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. 

No Water Coming Out

If water is not 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 with our team!
