Call the best plumber in  downtown Chicago to install your sillcock. Sillcocks, also known as hose faucets, are older terms used for outdoor faucets the height of the window sill. Usually, sill cocks have threading so that a hose can be attached to them. Many times, these devices are frost-proof. 

These days, all hose faucets need to have an attached vacuum breaker to prevent the hose's back flow to go back into the house pipes and create a lower water pressure in the rest of the house. Also, back flow tends to cause water to become contaminated.

 

Hose bibs are the part that connects the hose to the sillcock, or outdoor faucet. Hose bibs can sometimes leak and a lot of the time, it is just too difficult to do this by yourself correctly. It is much better to find a professional plumbing company to replace the bib and ensure a leak-free hose. Hose bib repair is important to get rid of the leak. 

 

Many Chicago homeowners don't really mind the hose bib leaking a small trickle. Remember that this is where it all begins. A smaller trickle soon becomes a large leak and that can mean a higher water bill at the end of the month. Also, hose bibs could sometimes cause back flow due to its being damaged and that means that the dirt that has been in the hose can back flow into the main water tank and contaminate the drinking water inside. 

When you own your own home or have a home you are letting a tenant rent, it is always better to make sure everything is in perfect working conditions. All replacements that are necessary are made, there are no leaks in the hose bibs, the sill cocks and the like. After all, once you keep your home maintained and in good working order, there is no doubt that you will spend less in terms of costs of repair in the long run.

Remember that outdoor plumbing is just as important as indoor plumbing. Since your sill cock is outdoors and you don't use the very often, you may have overlooked any frosting problems or hose leaks if these exist. Remember that if you live in a colder climate, a frost-proof sill cock is much more advisable than anything else especially in Chicago. In the process, you might as well check the hose as well. cracked hoses and hoses that have punctures and holes are going to lead to wasted water, which is not exactly environmentally friendly.
