Could you suggest the tools I will need to do this job ?
Copper or pex? Replacement or new install? A few more details and we can surely help ya out
It's copper pipes I am at college doing plumbing course and this is my little project cheers
Also it's a install I know you need to drill from outside to stop brick crumble ?
Copper cutters, grit cloth, tape measure, torch, flux, solder (95-5 or 97-3) and drilling from the outside seems about right. Every situation is a bit different but what I do solder a piece of copper into the hose Bibb, plenty long. Make sure the valve is open when you solder so you don't melt the washer. Then once the hole is drilled I put the hose Bibb with a soldered piece of pipe through the hole. If you have to drill pilot holes for your screws mark those out and drill them, then reinsert the hose Bibb and measure mark cut clean flux and connect then go back outside, make sure the Hose Bibb is level and screw it in to your holes. Again make sure the hose Bibb is open an solder.
FWIW, go to YouTube and search hose bib.
