    My parent' house many years ago had 2 water spigots outside for hot and cold water. I've never seen it on any other house. How common is this?

    Might be a regional thing? Not sure I’ve ever been to a house with both.

    could be handy for washing dogs

    Never thought of using it to wash dogs. This could be real useful when they get muddy on cold days

    When my dad had his garage built, he plumbed it so he could have hot water at the spigots. Super simple to do, tapped into the hot and cold at the washing machine with a 1/4 turn valve on each. Then a simple T plumbed to the valves and then out to the spigots. Can have cold, mix, or hot water by setting the valves under the sink. They use it to wash dogs, and wash vehicles.

    I have hot & cold water outside faucets at my house. I don't think it's very common, but it is useful when washing vehicles/dogs/kids when it's cooler weather.

    I grew up in upstate NY, and my Dad had a hot water tank in the garage/shop and used the hot water to spray off vehicles in the winter, among other things. I grew up with a source of hot water for outside use, so it was a normal thing to have.

    I added a bolt once...
    When I replaced my water main eight years ago my plumber said... "you are getting hot/cold water outside at your spigot". I was skeptical but agreed. I think he charged me $300 total and ran new Pex.

    I would not have it any other way... hot water wash buckets for winter car washing, cleaning stuff in general. It's just a joy. And, we used the faucet linked above. I send him a text every year at Christmas thanking him for the work.

    I've never seen it outside. Come spring I'm putting a tap in my garage though. It will be nice to be able to get a gallon of hot water in the garage to wash something up when it's -30 out.

    My laundry room will be easy to tap into.

    I won't have a sink or drain. Just the tap.

    I ran a hot water spigot to my garage when we moved in, combined with a mixing valve for washing cars in the winter time
