Re: Leaky hose bibb
Is this a standard hose bib or a frost proof valve? If it's a standard valve and it's leaking around the stem, try tightening the nut at the base of the stem a little bit at a time. Test and tighten until the leak has stopped. Over tightening of the nut will make the valve hard to turn. If that doesn't take care of the problem, then you'll likely have to repack the bushing around the stem, requiring the water be turned off and disassembly of the valve.
If this is a frost proof valve I can't help, I'm not familiar with them.
