How can I turn the head of a spigot?

Hi. I recently had a deck installed. The deck flooring in right below my spigot/hose bib. It's so close, I can not hook up a garden hose. How can I turn the head of the spigot/hose bib slightly so that I can fit a hose to it without having to do any major plumbing. Thanks for the advice in advance.

How close is it???

What type of hose bib? Vacuum breaker?

I think this may be your only option. If its threaded and has no vacuum breaker you may be able to turn it. You should have a vacuum breaker, and most codes require it.

You probably should have it relocated to the correct height. But the below may work for you. GardenSmith 763331 Gooseneck Swivel Connector: Patio, Lawn & Garden Camco 22503 RV 90 Degree Hose Elbow with Gripper: Automotive
