    I don't think it was a leak I think his vaccum breaker was spraying water with a hose attached.

        Okay now you know the brand and it is a fairly common brand. If you can find the same sill cock you may be able to swap out the parts.

          i say arrowhead too.
          look for "ahb"

          this is a very common brand out here.

          by the way. it looks like this is a screwed on hose bibb. how would one solder a wall mount bibb?

          dog, when v.b were first required here in los angeles early 1983 or so. i had to install hundreds of spring loaded aftermarket v.b. onto exisiting bibbs. then from that point on we would install hose bibbs with factory made v.b. on them. much less money than an aftermarket 2 piece design. problem was when a 1 pc. factory v.b went bad or had dirt in it. you had to fix it or drain the entire system and start fresh. not a simple or fast fix to start over.

            If you live in a area which gets frost you may have a frost-proof sill cock which has it's attachment point 4"-8" inside the wall. If it is just a standard sill cock and it is IPS you should be able to just unscrew the sill cock and replace it. Once you try to replace it you will be committed so consider your skill level before trying it.

              OK. This may sound like a dumb question. How do I replace my sill cock without destroying my brick or drywall. There is about an half a inch of mortar between the sill and brick.

                  the picture you posted is of a fip wall cock

                  meaning that it has a female iron pipe thread. very simple to unscrew and replace. just don't break it off in the wall

                  rick.

                  replace the entire faucet and you're good to go.

                    Is there a particular method to this? clockwise, counter clockwise?

                          lefty loosy, righty tighty

                          turn it counterclockwise to unscrew.

                          use caution so as not to break it off in the wall.

                          personally, you might want to hire a pro. you already did a great job with id ing it. don't ruin it by breaking in the wall and having no water till it's fixed.

                            Not so quick Rick. The frost-proof sill cock looks identical and is available in both IPS and Copper. I think the connection on the frost-proof ranges from 4"-8".

                              I understand. I'm getting sick of thinking about it too. And I think its about that time to the bedroom and pursue my passion. I really appreciate all the posts and will definatley add this to my favorites. I'll let it be for now and try to unscrew it tomorrow and hope I dont bust a pipe.

                              Thanks ALL,

                              Mike

                                not being an expert in frost proof since i live in sunny sourthern calif

                                i am looking at the handle position and would find it hard to believe it can be frost proof

                                what do you think mark you have cold weather in your neck of the woods and utah too
