We bought a house recently. The backyard has a faucet that is leaking (at the connection between pipe and faucet). looks like the previous owner tried to fix it too and in the process did the following:
- Bent/Mangled the water pipe (Looks like I have to tear the wall to fix this. So, wont fix this ever)
- Broke the threads from the water pipe to the faucet (probably)
- Broke the stucco off the wall (I wont fix this now)
I want to remove the faucet and put some plumbers tape. When I try to remove the faucet, it just goes round and round. It does not come out because the threads of the pipe are gone. Any suggestions? How can I fix the leak without removing the faucet?
