The Homewerks Worldwide 1/2 inch MIP x 12 inch Frost Free Chrome Plated Sillcock Valve is the perfect replacement for that old style water valve that is hard to turn. It is easy to install if you have any plumbing experience, if you are not comfortable with doing the replacement then seek help from a plumber. If installed correctly it should last a long time. You can use a female adapter,or you can soldier it in.

Great spout for your outdoor faucet. You don't have to worry about frozen outdoor pipes any longer. This was easy to install. I replaced an outdoor pipe that kept on freezing and bursting, even though I shut off the water and wrapped the outdoor pipe. This valve is inside your house instead of outside. Installation is easy, I started with a 1" hole and fitted the pipe through the hole into the house. Once inside I had the supply pipe in place so I cut it and fitted it directly into the valve pipe. I could have used a threaded fitting but felt that soldering directly into the valve pipe was just as easy and didn't have to worry about another point of failure. Once soldered I turned on the water and no leaks. Because I had no large head screws, I used a washer on the outside to hold the valve in place. I will replace this once I purchase the new screws. See attached pictures.

Large handle, frost free hose bib without built in vacuum breaker. A nice 12 inch frost free hose bib with a large, easy to grip handle. The sillcock valves come is 12 inches in length, leaving plenty of room inside the house to make a solder connection (my recommendation). The valve also has the option of using a male pipe thread connection offering additional versatility depending on your skills or water supply piping. The good - Large handle - Will not freeze if installed properly and hose is removed during freezing temps - good seal - "Top" is labeled to prevent spinning when soldering inside home. Recommendation - if you utilize this sillcock valve for your home's hose bib, pick up a vacuum breaker (about $5-10) to attach before your hose. This will prevent siphon effect which could contaminate your drinking water.

SUMMARY: A DECENT PRODUCT, BUT THERE ARE BE BETTER IN THE PRICE RANGE. NOTE: I was unable to install this sillcock due to circumstanced described in the “INSTALLATION” portion of this review. However, I also received a 12 in. model that I was able to install. The two valves are identical except the length of the tube for the body of the valve. Some comments below are in reference to my review of that product. BACKGROUND: I have wanted to upgrade our external hose bibs to frost-free sillcocks since we purchased our home. The chance to evaluate the Homewerks ½ MIP x 10-inch model was a great opportunity. FIT AND FINISH: The valve has a nice appearance, chrome over brass. The ½ in. pipe fitting is pre-soldered and the whole assembly is chrome plated. FEATURES: From the Home Depot page, with my comments as appropriate. • Homewerks Worldwide chrome plated sillcocks assure protection against freezing. Because they're frost proof, they can stop outside hydrants from freezing. The Chrome plated covering on this durable brass construction also provides a nicer look on the side of your home while still keeping the valve's reliability. • 1/2 in. MIP or 1/2 in. sweat inlet. o The MIP fitting is pre-soldered, so if you want to remove it you must un-solder it. Since the chrome plating is over the finished joint this would be difficult. Also, to de-solder the fitting you would have to remove the valve assembly from the tube. • Made from durable brass for long-lasting use o Certainly better than steel. • Chrome finish o May keep a better appearance over time than the tarnish the appears on brass. • 3/4 in. hose thread outlet o Standard for outside sillcocks here. • Easy to use wheel handle o Nice and big, but plastic, so durability may be an issue. • Frost free o Inherent in the design INSTALLATION: Unfortunately, due to a measuring error on my part I was unable to install the sillcock at its intended spot. The 10-inch model actually measures just over 11 inches from the back of the mounting flange to the end of the MIP fitting. But the brick cladding over frame construction of my house give a total wall thickness of 11 inches. This would require extensive removal of the sill plate to make an opening large enough for attaching the plumbing connections. For a brick clad house there are several considerations to address. Wall thickness is a primary concern. The valve must be long enough to reach into the crawl space or interior of the home far enough to install any plumbing connections. You should also consider the construction of the wall. If you are installing through masonry you may need special bits to drill through the material. If you have vinyl siding you may need to install an adapter plate. You must also know what type of water supply is available for the new/replacement valve. The valve uses a ½ in. MIP fitting. If your home has copper, pex, pvc, or polybutylene supply lines you will have to get suitable adapters, hose or pipe, or other supplies. I decided to use Sharkbite connectors to tie the existing polybutylene tubing to PEX. I have a PEX crimp tool but will redo all the polybutylene tubing in a future upgrade, so Sharkbite was the best for the short term. After I enlarged the hole, I put plastic anchors into the retaining screw holes in the brick, then inserted the sillcock leaving about 2 inches outside the hole. I then shot Liquid Nails Fuze-it silicone adhesive into the hole and around the tube of the sillcocks. I twisted the sillcocks as I pushed it into the hole to distribute the Fuze-it evenly around the tube and into the hole. I did this to provide a weather tight seal around the sillcock and to provide support for the valve in addition to the mounting screws. (Fuze-it sets up with less flexibility than other silicone sealants.) NOTE: The 2019 International Plumbing Code states: “608.16.4.2 Hose connections. Sillcocks, hose bibbs, wall hydrants and other openings with a hose connection shall be protected by an atmospheric-type or pressure-type vacuum breaker or a permanently attached hose connection vacuum breaker.” OPERATION: This model sillcock requires 3 ¼ turns to open or close fully. There are ¼ turn sillcocks available from Home Depot in this price range. I would recommend those due to ease of operation. Also, this model sillcock DOES NOT have an integrated vacuum break, so to meet current plumbing code a separate vacuum breaker must be installed, such as the: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-3-4-in-Hose-Bibb-Vacuum-Breaker-VACBFPZ4EB/205815672. There are other models available from Home Depot with integrated vacuum breakers. I would recommend those over this model. SUMMARY: A well-constructed sillcock but lacking in features. Not recommended. PROS: Well built; durable; looks good. CONS: Multi-turn handle operation; no integrated vacuum breaker; plastic knob.

The valve is 13 inches long from the back of the exterior mounting flange to the end of the pipe threads. The wall, with brick cladding, was 11 inches thick. So, length was not an issue. However, the previous hose bib was a ½” copper sweat connection. Fortunately, the hole in the brick was large enough. But I had to enlarge the hole through the sill plate with the bottom of the hole on the concrete block foundation. I ruined a 1 1/8-in. hole saw bit to do it, but got it done. I decided to use Sharkbite connectors to tie the existing polybutylene tubing to PEX.

There are some important rules to follow for frost-free faucets. 1. Install at a downward facing angle. If the faucet is not installed at a downward facing angle then water will not drain and will freeze. 2. Remove all hoses when freezing temperatures occur. If water is in the line it will be in the faucet line and freeze and break. The Frost Free faucets work from the principle of shutting the water off inside of the house/structure. The depth of the faucet is the depth of the wall plus enough room to attach the inside piping. I always buy a longer tube than necessary just to be safe. If installed properly and no hose is attached then they do not require additional frost protection!

Replacing a very old frost free sillcock valve- I call it a hose bib. My old one is leaking- I have rebuilt it several times but years of acid well water had damaged it beyond repair this time. The new Homewerks frost free was fairly easy to reinstall. PEX piping and Shark Bite fittings make such jobs much easier. I complicated the installation slightly- it is 1/2 in male pipe threads- but I am installing it on 3/4 PEX to get a little higher water flow. I used a 3/4 in. Brass PEX Barb x 1/2 in. Female Pipe Thread Adapter 90-Degree Drop-Ear Elbow. to make transition to 3/4 PEX. It is working great. Hope it lasts as long as the one it replaced-only time will tell. It is important that a frost free sillcock valve has to have your hose disconnected in the winter to be frost free. With the hose attached the water cannot drain out of the valve and it is subject to freezing and breaking.

This is obviously a high quality valve. The valve turns nicely and feels very firm. It has the extra length which allows it to not freeze as easily which makes this nice for colder climates and outdoor uses. I am replacing a very old faucet on the side of my house and am replacing steel pipe with pex pipe. When using pex pipe all you need to do is push the pex into the end of the faucets pipe (see photo) and it self seals and you are good to go. Very easy and quick. This should last for many years without issues. I would definitely recommend this faucet/valve.

This review is for the Homewerks Worldwide frost free chrome plated sillcock valve. This sillcock is something I’ve been needing for a long time. The one on the side of my house has been broken off for years so this is a welcomed addition. I like that it is chrome plated and that the pipe is nice and long. The knob on it is a good size so it will be easy to turn, the one I had before was very small and hurt my hand every time I used it. It came in a timely manner too.

I got this homewerks worldwide frost free sillcock valve installed on the end of my house to have water available there. install went problem-free valve works trouble free. I could have gone with a quarter-turn valve this takes a few turns to fully open this one but I feel these give longer service life. Valve has a very soft seal no need to over tighten drip free as is.
