  • Anti Siphon Hose Bibb doesn't work

    I have an Arrowhead anti siphon frost proof hose bibb that I just installed. Everything went great until I hooked up the hose. Water had flowed just fine through the hose bibb itself, but when I attach the hose it doesn't travel through the hose but shoots out through the siphon thingy. I tried another hose to be sure that wasn't the problem. What's up? Thanks,
    Kris

    Either the bobbit is misaligned, dirt is in the assembly or heat transferred and melted the plastic innards.

      6 lb sledge ?

      If it's fairly new return and exchange it.

        when you attached the hose, is there a shut off nozzle installed on the end? if so remove the shut nozzles and try again.

        arrowhead has designed and marketed a newer style anti-siphon bibb with yellow handle that flows 50% better and will not act up.

        i don't think they have them frost free yet.
