Call for local Plumbing Rules
You'll generally need:
- -3/4-in pipe and sillcock
- -vaccuum breaker that attaches to the sillcock, or a siphon-preventative sillcock
- -shutoff valve (a.k.a stop valve)

Make a Parts List
Measure your existing plumbing, and make a new plumbing layout for a material list. Draw where the pipe and fitting go; indicate whether a part has threaded, sweat, or solvent-welded joints, labeling size and description
