Nothing is easy in home repair!!!
We tried to replace the packing washer in our outside hose bib and that
seemed to go OK, but we removed the screw securing the handle and that
screw seemed to plug a hole in the hollow stem which now leaks.
What is the purpose of a hole in the hollow stem and how do you stop THAT
from from leaking?
The guys at Lowes never heard of such a thing.
Here is a picture to help you understand what I have...
Thanks for any ideas of what it's for and how to fix.
