We installed foam back siding on a house and have run into a situation that we're unable to resolve. The regular split block for the spigot or hydrant does not allow enough room to get your hand on the wheel. Mid-America doesn't have anything that helps such as an oversize block. Have any of you dealt with this and resolved the problem?

Thanks,

CM

How about a split mini block from master mount?

Color matched coil, j, and color matched caulking. I would also put the cap bend into the flashing piece and run it to the sill and j straight down both sides to the sill as well. Leaves no place for water to sit.

Get a plumber to cut the hose-bib loose, put a proper J-block on then reset the hose-bib.:thumbsup:

Who the hell makes that block???????? Ive never seen one like that before

The regular mid america split block works fine for us, as long as we put them upside down... WHY IS THAT????? Anytime i got a guy and he installs it with the arrow, the customer calls saying they cant hook up the hose

"I would also put the cap bend into the flashing piece and run it to the sill and j straight down both sides to the sill as well. Leaves no place for water to sit." I agree, i also agree with the others as far as white J-channel and i would have used a white J-block. Calling a plumber to cut the pipe and extending it would be the quickest and easiest solution.

Duraflo has some accessories that have a deeper profile. You could also extend the split ring with coil and attach the reciever trim to it.

I always try to match my blocks to the siding color. Why draw attention to an ugly spicket?
