  • Frost Free Faucet question?

    The frost free faucet on my home leaks where the arrow points when the faucet is turned on only.. Not around valve stem / packing nut but where this entire assy screws into valve body that is attached to house. I haven't taken it apart yet BUT when I asked a local HD person.. they said it needs to be replaced in total.. Before I start a tear there a gasket between the body and the valve section/packing nut piece. or a way to seal it,,

    Here's a parts breakdown for a similar device. See if you can find a brand name on the faucet & look for a parts list. Click image for larger version

      I found more info on NIBCO brand, which was sold at HD in the '90s. There is a PDF on NIBCO's web site on the "Fig. 85" & "Fig, 90" sillcocks, but it's too large to post here. These 2 models were discontinued and have to be entirely replaced, but there are some aftermarket websites with some parts. Here's a sheet on the "Fig. 90". Click image for larger version
