Hmmm.. you might just be the winner of this thread.. :yes:it MAY be as simple as tightening the packing nut too, try that first.
if it still leaks, then ScottR is correct on how to continue from there.
but then again, he is a prize-winner from the faucet knob thread too..... lol
You'll likely get better responses if you post a NEW thread in the plumbing section with your questions.I have an anti freeze spigot and when I turn it on with a hose attached water flows out of the handle. IF there is a packing nut it is inside and I cannot get to it. What is the answer on how to fix this leak that comes out just before the handle?
