    Default hose bib close to garage floor

    Probably one of those common sense things...
    Is there a minimum height above grade or above the floor for a hose bib?
    This one barely has room to attach a hose without kinking it.

    I could not find any code that governs the height of the hose bib.

    Atmospheric vacuum breakers are required to be minimum 6" above surrounding ground, other than that it's user preference.

    Where's that come from and what's the reasoning?
