The location of the outside tap relative to a water source. If the
tap is going to be some distance away then pipe runs and winter
drain down to prevent freezing need considering.
For outside taps immediately behind the kitchen sink (very common)
the task is to drill a hole through the wall (and potentially
the back of a kitchen cabinet), install the tap on the wall outside
and connect a feed to the main cold water supply via a check and
isolating valve. To do this space and access to pipes under the
sink are required as well as being able to turn off the cold supply.
For taps going some way from an existing supply a site visit
is often required to assess a pipe route.
