Stuck Hose


What are my options sure of hacksaw showing the hose off the spigot?

I tried soaking it with variety of penetrating stuff but it will not come off.

Re: Stuck Hose


I've never had one [yet] that I couldn't get off with channel locks or vice-grips, maybe with another wrench to stabilize the spigot so you don't bust/bend the pipe.

How long has that thing been in place?

Re: Stuck Hose


Make a couple of relief cuts on the side of the fitting, perp to the threads with a mini hack saw. Carefully chisel, peel away.

Re: Stuck Hose


Yep. I've done that on inside pipe threads. Never needed to on a hose bib.

Re: Stuck Hose


Wow just saw Google jumbled my words.....sorry

I will try heat otherwise I'll cut it.
Its been a few years on there.

The spigot is proud of the wall by an inch because I stripped and resided but never got around to reseated/sweating tight to the wall.
I may take the opportunity to install a Frost proof sillcock.
