Very little water coming out of outside faucet


We added an outdoor faucet at the back of our house last year. It's a sillcock quarter-turn frost-free faucet with a vacuum breaker on it. We tapped it off of a pex tube that went to the front outside faucet. Last year it worked fine with plenty of water pressure. When I turned it on this year, all I got was a very tiny stream of water coming out. Does anyone have an idea as to what might be wrong?

Check the part inside the hpuse for leaks when the faucet is turned on---If a hose was left on the spout--the tube may have split and the unit is blasting inside the house when turned on---

The front outside faucet works fine. The hose was not left on, and there are no leaks in the house.
