I have an Outdoor Water Faucet right under the deck which is very hard to reach. So far I have connect a 50ft water hose there permanently but I always shut off from the faucet because it's leaking water a bit at the connection and I don't want to winter freeze to crack the connection.
I need to redo this system. My plan is to have: (1) drip irrigation system and (2) a new faucet somewhere outside the deck.
I have a few questions:
The current faucet is copper. What is the best way to connect something permanently to it and have a 2-way spliter?
Which material should I choose to run a new external faucet outside the deck? I try to avoid removing the old faucet (may involve breaking the wall?!). I am thinking if there is some PVC that one end can screw in the faucet and the other end would connect to a new faucet? But PVC can't connect to metal faucet, right?
What kind of drip irrigation is best for summer and winter (sometime freezing in Pacific Northwest)? I was thinking of doing this http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/how-to/overview/0,,1088902,00.html
