I need to replace this hose bib. The guy at HD said I need a 1/2 inch hose bib with a female end.
I think I need one that needs to be sweated in, not female. I say that because the adapter it connects to, it is perfectly round. The 3/4 -> 1/2 inch male adapters I saw were not round on the outside, they had similar wrench-grip (six sided) like the hose bib has.
Who is correct?
If I am correct, I think I'm going to remove the adapter itself and replace with a 3/4->1/2 inch male adapter, and buy a 1/2" hose bib with female end.
Does this sound right?
