I hd to replace my outdoor water spicket beacause the turn knob busted off. I took it off to find it had a 1 foot long tube with a valve on the end. I have never seen this before but its logical beacause there is no turn off for that area and water wuld freze in winter. Anybody know where to find these and if they still make them?? I just repalced it it with a standard water spicket/valve but im worried in winter this will freeze and burst. I dont have a basement and whoever built this never put a shut off for this kinda of rediculous. Thanks for any input.

It is a standard frost proof faucet that should be available at any hardware store, home horror store, and plumbing supply house.

Note that they come in a number of different lenghts.

Note that they can either be threaded in or soldered in place if it is connected to copper pipe. If it is threaded them it can be removed from the outside, sometimes.

But if it was just the handle that broke then see if you can get a replacement at a hardware store.

When you buy the new frost proof make sure it has a vacuum breaker......
