frost free sillcock


vibrates when turning on, similar to water-hammer. Have just secured the inside water line right behind the sillcock..didn't make any difference. Any suggestions?

Sounds like a loose washer inside the sill cock. Turn off the water--disassemble the faucet

(many have left hand threads on the cap nut) inspect the washer --tighten it up or replace it.--Mike--

Thanks for that, it's done it since installation last year, but definately a possibility.
