Hose Faucets are known by different names so let's get this clear before we take a deeper dive into these multiple names of these devices and the best application for them.
  • Outside hose faucet
  • Hose bib
  • Spigot
  • Sillcock
  • Hose hydrant

Now that we've identified most of the names for a Hose Faucet, let's distinguish the two most common types.

Frost Proof Hose Faucet



Standard Hose Faucet



ASI Plumbing recommends Frost Proof Hose Faucets for most replacements and new installations because of the effectiveness of the design against freezing if used and maintained properly. As the name suggests this design is made to reduce the risk of freezing and bursting when the weather drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Although a Frost Proof Hose Faucet is the best choice if the installation dimensions will accommodate, it's not without problems and maintenance.

Unfortunately, ASI Plumbing replaces many of these hose faucets every year because homeowners fail to disconnect the garden hose before the first freeze. Because the seal on these faucets is set inside the home where it's warm & safe from freezing, the body of the faucet will hold water if a garden hose hasn't been disconnected and therefore is subject to freezing. Always disconnect the hose from the hose faucet before the first freeze.

If the garden hose was left on the Frost Proof Hose Faucet during freezing temps, there is now a chance that the body of the hose faucet has split open. Remember the seal has done what it was designed to do: holding back any pressurized water from entering the body of the faucet at this point. Alas, most homeowners are unaware of the frozen and busted body of the hose faucet. Then, in spring on the first warm day, they decide to turn on the hose faucet and wash the car while the split and busted hose faucet inside the home is now unknowingly gushing water into the home and causing damage. In most cases, they don't even know until they decide to go back into the home to find water everywhere. Sounds horrible, right? Frost Proof Hose Faucets are still the best choice when the hose is removed from the hose faucet before the first freeze after warm weather.

The second type is a standard hose faucet and is usually used when the budget won't accommodate a frost-proof or the dimensions of the installation won't allow the size of a frost-proof hose faucet. These faucets cost a bit less and will still do the job they're designed to do. When it comes time to winterize these hose faucets, shut off the valve inside the home that serves that hose faucet, go back outside, open the hose faucet, and disconnect the garden hose.

We had a leaky shower and being new in town I wasn’t sure who to call. I certainly feel like I made the right choice with ASI Plumbing. Scheduling online was a breeze. They called and confirmed the appointment. Jerry, the plumber, called the next day to give me an assessment and price quote based of what I told them what was wrong. He then called prior to coming to let me know he was on the way. He arrived on time. Jerry was very professional, he wore a mask and foot booties, he also put down a mat to clean his feet before coming in. He was very friendly with my children, didn’t make them feel as though they were bothering him. He assessed the situation and then gave me a couple options to resolve. We choose the option that best fit our needs and Jerry got the job done! He was quick and cleaned up all his messes. I will definitely recommend this company to anyone and plan on using them again in the future!

They have been so amazing I had a previous company come in to my home to do the same job 2 times each and it was still wrong. But when I called ASI they were very courteous, respectful, willing to explain to me what was wrong with my kitchen pipe underneath my sink, what was wrong with my toilet and what was wrong with my bathroom sink. I am so thankful to have found ASI because they have been the best company that I could’ve ever asked for.
