Negative, it's just a shitty faucet.

Voytek, I have the same one you do. It's a 12" faucet and even have an internal ball valve shutoff 2 feet into the basement that I shut off every Fall....

...Mine still did the same thing your's is doing last Spring.

Just a shitty part, period.

I did end up replacing the whole faucet mid summer. The pressure valve that sits on top ended up leaking as well. It’s a simple 5 minute swap out. Wouldn’t bother just replacing the gaskets again.

Yeah but my point is that if people didn't do that, I would have read the thread. Instead, I read the first annoying blam and then looked at your response to me. Nothing in between.

People ask enough banal and humorous stuff, when someone asks a legit question like this, I think that kind of **** that randomizes the thread and derails it should get you kicked. Which is why me and my jack-booted thugs don't run this place, I guess :-)

You have to have a sense of humor here in this section, most of us know our posting styles and with those types of posts will also come some very good info. You just have to deal with some ball busting along the way

You got us man, this bar known as OT sucks! So what does that say about the guy who comes in everyday, orders a drink, then tries to hang? Almost 90 threads bro since your infamous MS re-introduction, what's up slim?

He's already explained that Doug. It's a "social experiment".

If you're going to troll him at least try to remember what he's told us.

This may have been posted but you need to disconnect the hose to allow the water to drain from the faucet. Shut off the faucet and a little water will drain out. This is the water from the internal valve set 8 or 9 inches or more in the house to the outside.

Then in the remaining water is safely behind the freeze area.
