How to Handle a Plastic Outdoor Tap Broken Inside a Water Pipe

When a plastic outdoor tap breaks inside a water pipe, it can be a challenging situation to deal with. Here are some steps you can take to address this issue:

  1. Use a saw blade to create multiple notches in the interior of the pipe within the wall. Then, use a pointed tool to chip away and remove the broken tap piece.
  2. Pull out a leader with a steel saw blade and then, using a flathead screwdriver, tap and rotate the broken tap out in the opposite direction.
  3. Cut two corresponding notches in the interior of the pipe within the wall using a saw blade. With steel pieces of appropriate width and hardness, remove the broken part.

In situations where a plastic outdoor tap breaks inside a water pipe, these steps can help in effectively addressing the issue and resolving the problem.

When dealing with PVC, outdoor, or plastic faucets, remember to shut off the water valve first to prevent splashing when removing the faucet.
