This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Plumbing.

In this Badge Bit, you will swap out a sillcock or exterior faucet for a frost proof sillcock.  Turning off the faucets in the fall is hard to remember and they might freeze.  Let's fix that with a fancy frost proof faucet.

Here's Richard showing how it's done:


To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - swap out a "normal" faucet for a frost proof version
  - not replacing a frost proof with another frost proof

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - the old faucet (inside and outside view)
  - the project halfway through
  - the new faucet (inside and outside view)
