In response to Re: Sillcock valve broken?
: The Nibaco anti-sphone frostproof sillcock valve doesn't have water come out when I turned it on.
: I checked the valve inside the house which leads to it, there
: is water there.

: We've lived in the house for 7 years, this is the first time ever had problem with the valve. Is it because the
: long stem was broken so it stops the water from coming out?

: If I need to replace the valve do I have to cut the pipe and scolder it back?

: Thanks in advance!

I would check to make sure the washer and the washer reaining screw have not come lose and are blocking the passage way. If it is the stem you could just replace the stem instead of the valve body. LonnythePlumber
