|In response to Re: ANTISIPHON OUTSIDE FAUCET - Leaking|
My antisiphon faucet only leaks when the faucet is turned on. And, it appears to be coming from where the faucet is attached to the copper pipe going into the outside wall of the house. How can this be repaired? Thanks a lot!
: : my anti-siphon cap is leaking. How can I repair it?? Thanks in advance.
: : : Bob,
: : : The purpose of the "antisiphon is to prevent water from entering the domestic water supply from attached hoses. When the water is off, or when the main is "shut-down", same thing really, water can siphon back from the hose into the drinking supply. Contaminents from garden hoses and irrigation systems can enter what should be a pure and clean supply. The plastic part you mention, is really a cap, not the working part of the antisiphon. Typical is a small seal or valve that allows water only one way. Terry
