A hose bib is a tap that you can find outside the back of your door. It is also known as a sillcock. It comes with threading on the spout and is made for the attachment of a washing machine or garden hose. On the rainwater barrels which are used in suburban gardens for providing a source of clean, fresh, and free water for the winter months, the hose bib is also found there. A hose needs to be attached to the barrel for ensuring that the water reaches the garden. A hose bib makes washing your car easy, it allows you to water your garden and also makes your kids have fun in summer by running through the sprinkler. This also allows you to enjoy the comfort of running water outside of your home easily and very conveniently. This small device that remains attached to our homes makes us very productive during the summer and gives pleasure too. Like all the other things, our hose bibs also require attention, most importantly during the winter months. They are capable of contaminating the drinking water in our homes.
A small faucet attachment which can be noticed on the outer wall of a residential building that facilitates access to water in the backyard is known as a hose bib. This is actually a small tap which works like an attachment to your garden hose as the name suggests, by giving you easy access to water outdoors. They are known by different names like sill cock, an outdoor water faucet, or even a spigot. The main function of the hose bib is to directly connect to the plumbing system of your home. Through a series of smaller pipes, all the faucets in your home are attached to your plumbing system. Though the house bibs are only visible on the outer side of the wall but guaranteed there is more than what meets the eye. They draw the water from the main water supply of your home and the pipes of the hose bib lead them to that point. Specifically, there is water shut off valve in a residential unit which is made for the hose bib. Some homes even have a specific shut off valve for their house bibs as they want to cut off their water access in the freezing winter. The separate shutoff is not actually necessary as with frost-free hose bibs water back in your home can be shut off, away from the cold which burst pipes. Dutco Tennant LLC supplies a wide range of Hose Bibs in the Middle East and UAE.
