    I need to replace a leaky silcock, but it doesn’t come out when I unscrewed it. Looking in from the outside wall I see a copper pipe the silcock is attached to. What do I need to do to remove it?

    I am completely un handy. Is cutting and soldering pipe pretty easy?

    Thank you.

    A photo of what you have outside and also inside would help.


    If you live in a cold area a frost free replacement is the way to go. If you have copper inside and your soldering skills are not the best I would recommend a shark-bite connector and maybe a short length of PEX tubing.


    After we see what you have we can give you a plan of action and a list of tools you will need.
