    I think you may be right based on the no-kink design. I'm pretty certain it is just an IPS but if I don't add the disclaimer I will catch heck.

        Yes, that's your vacuum breaker but I don't understand our problem now, is it finding a new vacuum breaker?

          He damaged is vacuum breaker while trying to replace it. Becuae it is an Arrowhead brand it is not a standard vacuum breaker. Now his option are to either buy a new sill cock and strip the vacuum breaked off or replace the entire sill cock with the new one.

            When you replace it I would suggest using some pipe Dope on the threads of the pipe before you put the new one on, other wise you many end up with a small leak in the wall,
            The reason I did not suggest tape is It may be hard to put Teflon tape on the pipe in the wall. if you can get to it the tape will work also.

              So I chiseled away the mortar to see what I was working with today. I can see threads in between the sill and brick. I tried to turn it (gently) but the pipe is just twisting with it. To me it just looks like a copper pipe w/ threads. I dont even know if they make anything like that. So is this piece of pipe supposed to come out with it? What do I need to do if I cant get it to turn at the sill without that pipe moving with it?

                Is this a frost-proof hydrant? Can you see what it looks like from the inside of the wall like from the basement or crawl space? You say threaded copper pipe I am thinking this might be brass (looks like copper as it is very close in color) pipe and part of a frost-proof wall hydrant as opposed to a hose bibb. There is probably some confusion here in terminology. Some areas of the country will refer to what I call a frost-proof hydrant as a hose bibb. To me a hose bibb is an angled globe valve with a hose thread on the spout and a flanged 3/4 or 1/2" FM pipe connection on the back.

                I don't know whose web page this is but I just happened upon it first thing when I went searching just now. It just happens to show a hose bibb (first photo) and a hydrant (second photo).

                Notice the brass pipe used in the hydrant? Is this what you are saying is turning (or looks like it will turn) when you try to remove the valve?

                  I believe it is a arrowhead sillcock from the pictures online and guys in this post telling me. The pipe Im talking about is the one right behind the flange. I have posted a pic earlier in the post.

                    It sounds like there might be a brass nipple attaching the sill cock to the piping in the wall. It would not be uncommon for the nipple to unscrew instead of the sill cock. If the plumber installed the pipes in the wall correctly the nipple should be able to be removed with the sill cock without the pipes in the wall moving.

                    Once you get the nipple with sill cock removed as a single piece you can unscrew the nipple from the sill cock and re use it with the new sill cock.

                    Disclaimer: If it is not really a nipple but a CXMIP adapter you might have to open the wall to make the repair.
