Customer Questions & Answers

How do I remove the vacuum breacker from silcock. Is it threadeded or does it jusdt snap out?

Asked by: Jeep
Threaded. I unscrewed the silver cap but the threaded white plastic piece was stlll in the silcock. I used pliers to unscrew that. Then I screwed in the new pieces finger tight and the leak was stopped.

Vacuum breaker

I replaced the vacuum breaker,Model # 888-183 for my outdoor faucet, bought at Home Depot yesterday. My outdoor faucet is made by "Nibco"brand. When I turned on the faucet, it does not leak. But when I attach the hose to water the plants, it starts leaking from the vacuum breaker. Please help me to fix. Thanks
Asked by: MPK60
Sounds like to me its the added pressure put on the threads of the vacuum breaker because the same thing happened to me and I placed some teflon tape on the threads of the vacuum breaker and that took care of the leak for me. Vacuum breaker made out of plastic, I kind of expected it.

Vacuum Breaker Kit for Frost Free Valves is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best $2.68 I have EVER spent! I was actually considering changing the whole frost free faucet... The best $2.68 I have EVER spent! I was actually considering changing the whole frost free faucet out with another type to avoid the constant leaking water when using the hose. I am so glad I found this part on the HD site. The replacement took about 2 minutes and I used needle nose pliers to turn and tighten the fitting. The valve does not leak even one drop now! Very happy!!! Highly recommend this part to fix your problem. Can't speak yet for how long the fix will last, but I'm a happy camper for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINE PRODUCT, GREAT PRICE I have two freeze-proof faucets that have these valves. The valves themselves last at least several years and are a great value for the price. They are exceedingly easy to change when they begin to leak. You just screw them off and install the new one. If you don't abuse them as we do, they will last many years. But on one of our faucets, we have a lever shut-off and flow regulator that screws onto the spigot, so when we have this valve partially shut off to reduce the flow for watering new seedlings in the vegetable beds, it keeps the pressure high in the vacuum breaker assembly. Thus, with that high pressure, this one fails every two or three years or so instead of lasting for five or more years like the other faucet. But for $2.69, who cares?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product stop the water leak at top of faucet, Installation tip, center piece of product is removable, black rubber portion goes on top, another word, when you ready to install you should see white plastic parts of center part.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well for Mueller BK For those of us that allow valve to be left open and under pressure, this is a low cost fix for the frequent need to replace (2-3 years). To remove old and install new: I just used channel lock plyers to unscrew the threaded white plastic piece (bite right into the threads) and then screwed the new assembly in with something that does not damage the plastic threads. I used a strap wrench.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skeptical, but pleased! I must admit, my faucet was leaking out of the vacuum breaker and I wanted to repair it, but really thought this was too good to be true. I figured this would never fit and I would end up replacing the faucet. Since the store was only a couple miles away, I figured I'd give it a try. What a pleasant surprise to find that it solved the problem and we're back in business with a faucet with no leaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked LIke Charm I had a leakage from top vacuum seal part on my Proflow 10C Frost Free Sill cock. Removed the cap using a pipe wrench and remove the soft plastic part by unscrewing it using needle-nose pliers. Installed the new one using the same process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple fix The toughest part of the installation was removing the plastic ring of the original breaker left in the faucet when the top broke off. I was able to melt it out with a propane torch. The rest was straight forward.
