Outside faucet leaking, need a washer?


Hello:

My outside faucet is leaking when I turn it on. I think I need a washer, but I'm not sure, thought I would post some pictures.
When I turn it off, no leaks, everything is fine.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,
David

Looks like a freeze proof faucet, here's a link.

Thanks. Not sure why I have them on the house here in Texas, but oh well.
I went to Home depot and they only had a full system replacement.
I'll inspect the faucet more this weekend to see what the issue really is.

Maybe for the anti-siphon effect, or maybe it's what they had at the store. Either way.

Well, I went to Ace Hardware and they had a .89c packing washer that worked.
The other washers on the rod were a little worn, but the guy at the store said, they aren't that bad, no need to change them.
So I first had to dig my main water shut off value from underneath the dirt, haha, yeah it gets a lot of dirt covering it for some reason.
Then I took the rod around until I found what I needed. Lowes and Home Depot were worthless, but my local Ace hardware was great.
I think I'll give him my business when warranted.

What kind of packing did they give you graphite or teflon.

Honestly, not sure. I know it was black and it fit in the nut perfectly.
