Default Good outdoor double faucet? Why can't I find one?

Seems like this shouldn't be hard to find but I am having problems with it. The back of my house only has 1 outdoor faucet. I need two hoses. One for the boat and one for the garden. I currently have one of these to make one faucet into two.



This worked OK when I had my deck. The garden was on the opposite side of the house from the faucet so I just ran a hose under the deck. The deck is gone and I am putting in a patio. I don't want to have to drag a hose across the patio all the time. I want to bury a pipe before I put the patio in so I have water on the far side. I know I could rig an adapter to my Y connection and I may en up doing that but it seems like I should be able to get a decent double faucet. One to feed a down pipe and one for a normal hose. I can't find one easily. This is what I am looking for but it is overseas and I doubt it would even fit my connection.



I thought about just putting another faucet in below the one I have because I assume the pipe runs up the wall a bit. The house is a cookie cutter vinyl sided house and I really don't know how to take that crap off or what is behind it so I thought it would be easy to just replace the faucet but maybe I am wrong or missing something?

Look at Arrowhead Brass. Nice domestic stuff. Make a manifold with a 3/4" tee.

If you have a crawl space you could just run another hose bib. If there any plumbing on the other side of the house, near the boat, that you could tap into?

Are you looking for something like this?

The other option is to make a manifold out of copper pipe and fittings. Home centers usually carry an adapter to connect to a hose bib that can have 1/2" copper soldered into it.

I'm liking the manifold idea!

You can start with one of these found in home centers where they have brass fittings in bags . Solder a copper by male adapter to a piece of 1/2" cop. then do whatever you want after that.
