    I'm repairing a leaky Mansfield anti-siphon faucet. However, I'm having problems getting the handle off. Is the handle screw a normal right-handed one? I feel like I'm going to break it, but the screw just doesn't want to budge.

    Thanks for the help.

    handle

    Hold a plier around the stem behind the handle and then slowly pry between
    the plier and back side of the handle.
    You can adjust the pry space by opening or closing the faucet.
    Or find a handle puller..........
