How to Fix a Leaking Garden Faucet

What to you do with a leaking faucet?  Well, I'll tell you

Modern Frost Proof Faucets can leak for several different reasons

I had a client contact me yesterday about a faucet on his new home that is leaking when he uses the hose.  The problem is not the valve itself, but rather that water bubbles out the plastic cap on top of the faucet whenever he runs the hose.

The reason for the leak in this case is that the house is on well water and sand particles will sometimes make their way up to the house and get stuck in the faucets.  On the interior, this means having to clean out the aerators on the sink and shower faucets.  On the exterior, this means the anti-siphon on newer hose bibs will sometimes get stuck open.  This short video will show you how to deal with this.
