: When we open our outside faucet, a goodamount of water leaks right out around the knob connection to the faucet. It's a 20-year-old freeze-proof faucet. What needs to be replaced and gdo I need special tools?


Howard,
Sometimes you can tighten the nut near the end that holds the packing for the stem.
You may be able to replace the packing too.
Pliers will do for this.
