    Is your area prone to freezing?
    Add a frost free bibb and the "tee" dilemma becomes a "non-issue".

    Woodford makes one that is supposed to be burst proof if the hose is left on for a few $$ more. It back feeds into the water line if the pressure exceeds 300 or 350#. The one above does not have / show an anti siphon vacume breaker on it which it should. Like this.

    If you can't tell this is my first plumbing job. So forgive the stupid questions. How hard is it to get the faucet out? Do I have to put concrete back in?

    If you are doing a CPVC slip coupler, how do you apply the cement to the slip coupling? Do you just apply a liberal amount to the area you are gluing to, slide the coupler into position, and hope there's enough glue to make a proper seal inside the coupler?
    (and how long do you typically have to wait for the glue to be thoroughly dried before you turn the water on?)
