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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
