Fitting an outside tap.....

I am thinking about getting one of those kits so that I can have a tap outside (so i can hose the garden down etc - when I get a hose pipe aswell lol)

what I wanted to know was:

How easy are they to fit?

What tools are needed to fit one?

Re: Fitting an outside tap.....

Yeah there easy to fit - if its the type where you put it over the pipe and tighten 2 screws, theres a bit the punctures the pipe as you do this and its sealed with a rubber washer at the same time, no mess, no drips or anything.
BUT - the hole that has been created does eventually clog up and reduces flow, mine did, took a few year though and I had to take it off to clear it, it's corrosion with the metal and copper touching each other. I eventually took mine off and put a proper T-piece in.

LOL, get an adaptor to fit your tap and put the pipe through the window or door when you want to use it

And you are required to have a non return valve fitted inside the house so that nothing can get back into the water supply.
