I'd like to replace my old outdoor hose bibb (because it's really difficult to turn on) with a new hose bibb and PEX.
Ground Wire 1
On the other side of the hose bibb is copper pipe and a clamped ground wire from the electrical panel in the basement.
The ground wire then exits the exterior wall, through the concrete driveway, and into the ground.
Ground Wire 2
There's a second ground wire comes from the same electrical panel in the basement, runs through the garage, and is clamped onto the main water supply copper pipe.
The water supply enters the garage immediately below this ground wire at the bottom of the concrete wall, which is underground.
I will probably need to remove the section of copper pipe that Ground Wire 1 is clamped to in order to replace the hose bibb using PEX.
Any ideas on how to maintain the Ground Wire 1 connection to the plumbing system?
Thanks in advance.
