 Outside hydrant connected to house
Author: Dianne Benjamin (AR)

I hired a plumber to replace my very old rusty leaking outside hydrant connected to my brick house.
Now the back plate on my new spicket is sort of secured with only one screw that is loose and some white silicon. Maybe there was not much behind for the plumber to attach to. Will this hold up to use? Is there such a thing as a larger back plate that can be placed behind this so we could put screws in the bricks? Is there any other solution?

Please send picture your situation. Send picture of the work you are concerned about. This would make it easier for everyone.

i don't know of any plate that you ask about. all outside faucets are not the same as to the size of the flange and the spacing of the holes so each plate would be different depending on which faucet you have.
making one out of that plastic wood (azek) and attaching it to the bricks with stainless screws is probably your best bet.
it probably means removing the faucet and extending the pipe 3/4 inch.

yeah, if that plate is not stainless steel, what good is it. here, next to the atlantic ocean, it would be a pile of rust in 2 years..
