My outside spigot has been leaking. I tried to take it out to install a new one. I broke the [censored] pipe off in the wall. Now my family can't !@$&, shower or shave in this God forsaken place. I wish I could burn it to the friggin ground!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe you could use whatever caffeinated liquid you've been drinking to shave with?

Just shut the water off, see what you need to fix it, go get the supplies, and fix it....

One reason I waited to fix my outside spigots..... replaced them when I had to shut the water off to replace the shower valve.

Sorry you're having bad luck.

Go under the house and put a shut off inline for that pipe, then fix it when you have time! Takes about 10 minutes to put a shutoff inline.

I've learned that I can either call a plumber when I have a problem or work on it myself, make a big mess, have to shut the water off to the house, and then call a plumber.

There's no such thing as a 10 minute plumbing job for me!

most new spicets have washers in them that can be replaced when leaking.

Well after much cussing and fussing I got it fixed. I had to cut out some sheet rock in the garage to get to it. Whoever installed when the house was built did't care if someone needed to replace one day. The spigot was soldered into place instead of putting a threaded end on the pipe and screwing in the spigot. Thanks for the encouragement.

It's funny you say that. My dad asked if I needed him to come help me fix it. I told him it's about time I grew up and started doing stuff like that for myself. I'm 36.

I know it can be frustrating, just kidding with ya. If you can get lucky enough to buy another spicket just like the old one you can just replace the inside stem.

Put an access door where you opened the sheetrock for future problems that may arise.


Very good idea.
