Outdoor plumbing

On the side of our house, we have these pipes that leaked like crazy. Also, for some reason, the pipe comes up 4 feet then goes back down. Not sure why, perhaps it was so an old person could turn the water on and off without having to bend over? No idea.

I had re-wrapped the pipe in insulation last winter when we had the freezing temps because those pipes are just asking to freeze.

Was going to call a plumber, then decided to tackle it myself. An hour and a half later and it looked like this:

Used brass fittings ---- about every little piece in that photo cost over $10, so total price was around $80 and sore hands! But cheaper than a plumber.
