Extending an Outside Water Faucet

Hello, is there a way to 'grow' an outside water faucet? I have a main spiket in a-hard-to-get-to place under my back decking and I can't reach the handle easily. Can I put a garden hose on the original faucet and a second turn-off handle at the end of the hose? I want to be able to change out my sprinklers and nozzles without water still flowing. Also, another concern, the original faucet will be on all summer and only be turned-off when I winter-up. Is this ok for the faucet water pipes going into the wall to have it be in on position all the time?

What is the best way to extend a water faucet without moving the water pipes? Thank you!

Why not. Just be sure to use a good piece of garden hose as it will be under pressure all the time. Maybe a 25' rubber hose would be a good choice.

A brass shut off valve like this would complete your setup. These are also available in Y's for connecting two hoses.
