anti siphon faucet


I am not getting full force flow out of faucet and cannot shut it completely off without shutting it off inside the house at a valve in the line. Is my faucet bad?

Got a picture of what your talking about?
Is this an outside sillcock?
Did someone leave the hose on when it went below freezing?

You may have a bib washer failing or should I say failed. You may be able to pull the stem or install a new anti siphon- frost free hose bib
