    Default frostfree silcock

    Hey guys,

    I was just wondering what brand of frost free silcocks you guys use. I have pretty much always used Woodford, But man they have gotten expensive. I can get a zurn for about 1/2 that but have always trusted the wordfords and now i am thinking about switching but don't want to get some cheap piece that will only cause call backs.

    I've been using Legend frostfree bibs.
    The handle has rubber on it with a 1/4 turn cartridge in it.
    They are fairly quiet, the customers love them.

    I haven't used one in years but I think my old boss in New Jersey used Nibco.

    So where does it say on the Legend "Frostfree" that it can't be in a cold climate?
    I pulled one out of the box, and I coudln't see anything like that.
    It did say to remove the hose in Winter and drain it.

    I also use Arrowhead.

    I think it's my mistake its the T-552 close coupled ones. I guess thats the shorter stemmed ones. Hmm, I will have to look into seeing If any of my suppliers carries them.

    I have been using the Legend valves for some time now and as Terry said the customers love them. The only thing is they are not rebuildable as far as I know...but then I never rebuild them anyway...I will only replace hose bibs.

    I would like to have hot and cold to the outside. Which dual frostfree bibs are high quality?

    Thanks.
