Forum Title: old galvanized hose bib
So for whatever reason my house has a hose bib about 4 feet away from my house in the middle of the yard. it is highly inconvenient and i want to move it back to the wall of the house so i stop tripping over the thing. The problem is that it has old galvanized piping leading up to it buried in the ground. the exterior is pretty rusty. How would i go about cutting off the excess pipe and putting an elbow and new pipe on it at the edge of the house with it being this rusty. What kind of a fitting would i use to connect it to make it work, keep in mind where i cut and put a new elbow on will be under ground in the dirt. any help here would be appreciated.....and yes i know its old galvanized pipe that needs replaced and we plan on doing that in the future but i just need a fix for this hose situation in the short term, if there is a solution that is.

There will be either a 90 or a tee in the ground Unscrew the nipple and install applicable length of galvanized pipe back to the house and bury
