Anti-Siphon Frost Free Valve is Leaking
Posted by Wendy on June 09, 2002 at 21:49:42:
I have 2 outdoor spigots and they both leak a tremendous amount of water. One has been leaking since the house was new, 3.5 yrs and the other has just started leaking. They are UPC A.S.S.E. 1019-A Anti-Siphon hydrants and they only leak when turned on. When on, they spray large amounts of water out of the top of the spigot, where the valve appears to be. I suspect this is the anti-siphon value but I would think they water shouldn't continue to spray large amounts of water as long as the spigot is on. Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks!
