Hose bibb


I'm not sure what brand my hose bibb is. There is no stem inside but I would like to put one in so I can use it normally. Any idea what kind this looks like?

That is a standard frost proof bibeith a vacuum breaker. You need to explain better what you are trying to do.

It has no stem in it. I need to buy one so I can use the handle to turn it on and off instead of having a shut off hooked up to the outlet.

I can't make out the writing on the side.There should be a name somewhere on it.you might just be better off putting a whole new bib in.If you find a name don't forget to measure the length.Its prob somewhere between 6-12 inches.
