A hose bib is another term for an outdoor water faucet, which is found in most homes on the outside of the front and back of the house. Most people need to hook up a hose to their outdoor faucet to water their plants, garden or wash the car. A sillcock is also another term for an outdoor faucet although typically features a longer pipe in 6 inch through 14 inch most common lengths.
A frost free hose bib and a sillcock contain an interior valve to prevent water from accumulating in the pipe and freezing. It is especially important to prevent water from freezing in your faucet during cold months to prevent extensive damage to your home. A hose bib typically connects to the water line directly and does not have a check valve or stem, and meant for mild climate applications. A frost free hose bib or sillcock has a check valve at the end of the long pipe which is located inside the home and protected from freezing, if the hose is disconnected during freezing conditions
If you have an older house and must continually repair your outdoor faucet, it might be time to install a frost free hose bib or a longer sillcock for a longer lasting solution.
