outside taps

Postby alanpease » Thu May 31, 2007 10:50 am

I have an outside tap for the garden hose but when I turn it on water seems to come back out of the connection. When the water is not turned onto the tap there is no leak so I imagine the washer on the tap is OK.

when I turn on my tap with my hose water leaks from the handle and the connection from the tap to the hose. Right when I turn off the water it bursts out from the connection. Should I replace the tap or just put some tap on the threads?
