re: Need a water spigot on my dock, back porch area. - jobbieman
I would recommend using PEX instead of PVC. You can buy Sharkbite fittings to connect the PEX to the water hose connection. You don't have to worry about PEX breaking if it freezes. I can't tell from the photo, but you may be able to unscrew the existing faucet and install a tee. ...
