Tyler Zowat lives in Perris, California. He wanted his back yard plumbing repaired because it was always dripping water all over his new patio tiles and his patio entrance. He purchased all his plumbing parts from The Home Depot.
This post shows seventeen steps on how to move a rusted galvanized twin water bibs away from the front door of his new patio area.
Step 1: It's best to create a plan alongside a parts list. This makes the job easier to do when parts are picked up at your local warehouse store. This job entailed moving the water pipe from near the entrance and across the to the garden patio area. Above right fig.1 shows the last picture from first post. Additional posts are at the end of this post.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows a metal chisel and metal sledge. The cement edges had to be removed around the metal pipe before a schedule 40 male adapter could be inserted. The previous owner had buried the metal pipes in the cement patio never intending on repairing the water pipes that supplied his backyard.

Step 8: Fig.8 shows a 4-foot pipe stretched across the gate entrance. Fig.9 shows the other side of the door entrance had to be done also so the pipe would not be in the way when the people crossed over the gate threshold.

Step 9: Fig.10 shows the pipe is being placed into a slip union and near it another 10-foot pipe will be used to be near the garden area. The middle of the picture where the pipe stop by the wall is another drop were two more 90° Elbows and a short pipe was used to lower the pipe to another level of the patio.

Step 14: Sometime the cut cannot be completed and fig.15 shows that the PVC pipe was placed in the PVC cutter again. It's worth the trouble to get the job done correctly.
Step 15: Fig.16 shows the end of the garden pipe with a without a pipe cap.
