My hose bib isn't secured to the brick at all, and it just has what they called "hand putty" sealing it off from the elements. I've started to notice the "hand putty" cracking, and I can feel the valve twisting on the pipe in the wall when I turn it on and off.
I'm guessing this isn't the right way to do this, but I can't find a solution to the problem. Has anyone else figured out a better way to secure a hose bib to brick after construction has completed?
