I have a faucet below my deck that is connected to a faucet that is screwed into the railing. They are connected via a 1/2" copper pipe which burst this winter in multiple locations. The simplest fix for me would be to just run some garden hose between the two faucets and bypass the pipe altogether. Is there a reason not to do that?
I could run copper or pex again, but it just feels like too much work at this point.
