The user&# 039; s job to ask a valve&# 039; Outside


Watering the garden, fill the pool, clean the patio ... An outside faucet is often very useful in a house. And if I do not, I can install myself, provided all the same to have some knowledge in welding! For the rest, this operation requires about two hours.

Step 1 - I gather tools and materials

In addition to my traditional toolbox (wrench, meter, screwdriver ...), I'm going to need a course tap, but also dedicated copper pipes, a torch with oxygen bottles and acetylene welding rods tin, a pipe cutter - or failing a hacksaw, fixing collars, possibly a hand bender if I have to bend my pipe, a valve lever to cut water in winter. I do not forget the must drill in this case with its drill concrete.

Step 2 - I take the measures

Before you start anything, I think not only to cut the water but also to purge the pipes. Otherwise, the warranty flood! As with any DIY job, I first take my measurements, on the outside wall to the height where I would put my cock on the inner wall at the location of clamps. I place them to one meter above ground (but you can just as easily place his lower pipe) and the gap between each of them is also a meter. I am careful to position them so I have to work around an electrical outlet, go behind the water heater ...

Step 3 - I prepare my wall

Outside, I drill my wall so as to create a passage for the pipe. Inside, I put my clamps, simply by pegging them to the Placoplatre®. According to my measurements, particularly to the water inlet pipes, I bow my copper tube. I use it for a hand bender, well in advance of annealed copper torch to make it more manageable.

Step 4 - I create a new water supply

Always torch, I drill a hole in a supply pipe in cold water. Protect Your wall against heat and flame torch. I always use this tool to perform welding soldering, with my tin wire, between the pipe and the tip of my copper tube.

Step 5 - I fixed my copper pipes

Depending on the length of my basement wall, I'm going to need more copper tubes will also be welded with a torch with chopsticks welding. I place them in the clamps, it is enough to tighten with a screwdriver along the entire length of the wall. To designated location for the lever valve, that will serve me to turn off the water. I then placed the valve in my hose, 1 m / 1.50 m from the exterior wall. At this stage, I can reopen the water and check that the valve is working.

Step 6 - I place the last tube

Before placing my last copper tube, I have to bend it so that it is placed vertically against the wall, on the outside, to a height of 10 to 15 cm. I also cut to the length needed for it to be placed at the end of my valve. I then inserted the tube from the outside, I place the nut and I fixed the water shutoff valve. Outside, it must be almost vertical and glued to the wall.

Step 7 - Installing my cock

Last step: installing the valve. To do this, I mark the fixation mark before drilling again my wall. Important: I think my butcher hose with your thumb to avoid the engulfed the remaining coating. I peg the tap and it remains for me to screw my pipe on which I placed and welded nut. I make sure it is fully tightened with a wrench.

Installation is complete, it's time to open the tap and let the water run!
