New hose bibb for garage.

18 years ago

My wife and I have a new house that I am considering adding a hose bib in our attached garage. It would be mainly used during the winter time to wash the salt off of our vehicles (we live in northern Utah). My questions are - has anyone tried this, and if so did you use it very often. Also, would it be necessary to have both hot and cold water run to some type of mixing valve or would cold water be enough. And last - would I need to have anything special done to prevent freezing? The garage is partially below grade with insulted garage doors. I doubt that it gets below freezing, but not sure. Thanks.
