How to Properly Replace a PVC Bibcock in Your Home

Are you experiencing a leaky or old PVC bibcock in your home and looking to replace it? Look no further! In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of replacing a PVC bibcock to ensure a successful and water-tight installation.

  1. Shut Off the Water Supply: The first step in replacing a PVC bibcock is to ensure the water supply to the fixture is completely shut off. Locate the shut-off valve underneath the sink or in the bathroom. Turn the valve clockwise to close off the water.
  2. Remove the Handle: Next, you’ll need to remove the handle of the bibcock. Most handles can be easily unscrewed by turning them counterclockwise. If the handle is stuck, use pliers for assistance.
  3. Unscrew the Bibcock: With the handle removed, you’ll now see a screw holding the bibcock in place. Use the appropriate screwdriver or pliers to loosen the screw and then unscrew the bibcock from the fixture.
  4. Clean and Replace: After removing the old bibcock, clean the connection area thoroughly before installing the new PVC bibcock. When installing the new bibcock, ensure all screws and handles are securely tightened for a proper seal.

Whether you are replacing a plastic faucet or upgrading to a PVC faucet, the following steps will help you successfully install new equipment in your home.
