  • Replace multi-turn garden hose spigot with single turn?

    Does anyone make a stem/washer insert to replace those which require many turns to shut off?
    I don't want to unsolder thexisting hose bib and replace it.
    Just unscrew the stem and washer (whatever that is called) to which the handle is attached.

    Thank you.

    I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified.
    It ain't just soot, it's paydirt.

    Thank you.
    Sure almost every hardware store has the ballvalve type hose faucet.

      I mean thathe stem with washer can be removed and replaced wit single turn faucet without having to unsolder thexisting garden hosebib. I'll go fix my original post.

          Go to the hardware store and by you a female to male ballvalve hose connector. screw that onto your existing hose bibb and leave it on. Control the flow from the add on valve thats of the ball type.

            I soldered one of those 1/4 turn garden hosebib ball valves on. The noise it made inside the house when running water drove me nuts! I had to remove it and solder on a regular compression hose bib. Never again-

              I would expecthe direct in line opening through the ball to produce less turbulance and therefore less noise and greater flow.

                  Good one!
                  The garden hose spigot is now below a deck later built.
                  Also, the handle is between two close beams which makes it difficulto turn.

                  (Thend of the whole deck steps down to the lawn. I ran the garden hose UNDER the deck and out a hole I drilled athe corner of a step.
                  To hide the hose, I push it into the hole and it simply loops up underneath.)
                  I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified.
