I have to replace a 50 year old backyard bib and I don't know if it screws out or if the faucet was originally soldered on the the 1/2 " tube.
What is the best way to approach this?
Below is a picture of the exterior view. The inside view is just the tube going into a wood sill board.
I haven't done any soldering in 20 years and I'm wondering if there's now an easier way of doing this project.
Should I just cut a 12" length of the existing copper supply tube and solder a new 12" assembly (faucet & soldered 12" replacement) and sliding it through the existing exterior hole and then soldering them with a copper union?
Or is there an easier way to join copper these days (ferruled compression fittings, etc.)?
