Outdoor Tap Installation
Outdoor Tap Features and Considerations
- Spigot Faucet :-
If you want to go with a traditional style faucet for general purpose usage, you might want to go with a spigot faucet. They’re priced reasonably and the installation costs are also nominal. However, these taps tend to freeze over in harsh Hamilton winters!
- Hose Bib Faucet :-
Similar to spigot faucets, you also have another variant called hose bib faucets. Both these types of outdoor taps work on the same operating principle but unfortunately, hose bib faucets also lack weatherproofing features.
- Ball Valve Faucet :-
Also known as the shut-off valves, the ball valve faucets have a ball within them with a hole. A handle on top of the tap, that’s also connected to the ball inside the pipe, gives you the option to open or close the valve.
The only downside to this type of outdoor tap is that they only give you the option to either open or close the valve. You won’t be able to control the pressure or flow of the water.
- Frost-Proof Outdoor Faucet :-
These taps have the inbuilt features to withstand harsh winters like those of Hamilton. You can get our expert plumbers to install one of these for your home and never worry about cold snaps.
The only precaution that you must take with these is to disconnect your hose from them when not in use. This is because these taps have a downward angle to let the water drain out easily, preventing them from freezing. If the hose is kept attached then the water may not be allowed to drain fully.
If you’re looking to get an outdoor tap at a budget then our suggestion would be to go for a spigot or hose bib faucet with additional weatherproofing features. This will cost you comparatively less, however, your outdoor tap will be “weather-resistant” not “weather-proof”.
For those of you who are looking to use your outdoor tap all year round, with access to warm and cold water and ready to spend some extra bucks for it, frost-proof outdoor taps are your best option! You will have some additional purchase and installation costs but getting one of these will give you years of freedom to keep on using your outdoor tap all year round.
