  1. Digging a trench to connect the faucet to the water main.

In order for the water to be available at the faucet the plumber will have to dig trenches where he will lay pipes that will supply the water.

  1. Connecting the faucet.

After laying pipes the plumber will have to connect the faucet into position. This will require the plumber to make threads on the pipe that will project out of the ground and screw the faucet into position. In order to ensure the faucet is tightly fixed, the plumber can decide to make use of a plumbing grease to ensure the threads are watertight.

Before the plumber leaves your home, they have to test the faucet and ensure that water is flowing through it. At first they will open the tap that he had closed that was leading water from the main line to the faucet. If water flows out smoothly, then the work of the plumber will be over.

It is always necessary for you to try and have your outdoor faucet installed by a qualified plumber, so that you will be assured that it has been installed correctly.
