Not a plumbing whiz, so I thought I'd pose my issue here.
I have a 12in Shark bite sillcock that runs through my brick foundation for an outdoor hose. Once inside, it connects to the existing copper line, which is immediately to the right.
Problem is that the sillcock is a bit too long. The faucet sticks out about two inches from the brick foundation. Obviously, if I try to push it closer towards the foundation it puts pressure on the copper line.
Is there anyway to work around this? My only thought would be to take the sillcock out, buy a shorter one, and install it with just enough copper line on the end to enter the basement. But would that defeat the purpose of the "frost-proof" sillcock?
