C-158 / C-258 | Heavy Pattern Hose Bibb with Breaker & BFP
PRIER has been manufacturing the C-158 Anti-Siphon Hose Bibb since the late 1980's. This product has all the time tested features of our C-138 series, with the added protection of a vacuum breaker and backflow preventor. It is a simple operating product that is fairly simple to repair.
Possible Repair Issues for the C-158 Angle Sill Faucet:
1. When the water is running, water leaks out from behind the handle
This is a common maintenance occurrence for any packed valve of any brand or manufacture. It is overcome by simply tightening the packing nut with a crescent wrench. This will force the packing tighter around the stem to eliminate leakage.
Occasionally, the packing will need to be replaced if the packing nut has been repeatedly tightened.

2. The hose bibb drips after shutoff
The angle sill faucet/hose bibb may drip for a few moments after shutoff. If the water continues to drip after that time, you most likely need to replace the bibb washer.
PRIER utilizes a 1/4 L beveled bibb washer for angle sill faucets. This bibb washer is a standard 1/4 L beveled bibb washer, available from your plumbing supply house. The appropriate kit for this item is part # C-135KT-802.

6. Water is leaking from the holes on the vacuum breaker
The rubber washer inside the vacuum breaker has failed and needs to be replaced. This is accomplished by unthreading the vacuum breaker from the body of the hydrant and replacing the internals. The vacuum breaker is sealed to the body with a body sealant and may require heat to break loose.
