    Default Best replacement for old Mansfield frost-free sillcocks?

    I have two 25+ year old Mansfield/Prier frost-free, anti-siphon outdoor sillcocks that are shot. I think both are sweated onto the pipes, but fortunately there's only drywall inside the house that can be cut and patched fairly easily. For the one near my driveway (currently just cold H2O) I'm hoping to do the replacement with a hot and cold combo (there's a hot water pipe in the house that runs very close to the existing faucet) so I can wash the car in chillier weather. What brand/model sillcock do people recommend for replacement?

    Thanks in advance.

    http://www.woodfordmfg.com/woodford/.../Model-22.html would be my first choice. Moen also makes one that has a cartridge - pull to turn it on, and turn to adjust the temp.

    Thanks, Jim -- those look great (although I still welcome other suggestions). I probably should have added that easy replacement/service parts availability is always a plus (although certainly not critical in the Internet age where stuff can be shipped easily).

    And wow, those Moen faucets look really slick!
