Home Inspection Reveals Loose Hose Faucet Installation

In the attached video, the home inspectors show you a loose hose faucet at the rear of a home on a recent home inspection. What can happen as a result of this hose faucet being loose is that as it moves within the wall it can put stresses on the solder joints. Over time this movement can result in a solder joint cracking and leaking. I have recommended to the homeowner that the hose faucet be re-secured to the house to eliminate the movement. A couple of screws through the slots in the housing should secure the hose faucet adequately to the home.
