It all maters how it was installed. If it is screwed into a drops ear 90' no prob. But if its strapped or a one with a front door like a commercial Bibb. Repair is the way to go. These day guys are so fast to replace any thing but shower valves. But one reason is crap is so cheaply made the days it's not worth repairing. But a nibco mite be

if it were a commercial with a door i would repair it. if its just a house with a basement or a crawl i replace it. usually the bibb is split from leaving the hose on during freezing weather anyways.

Ferguson has parts for Mansfield frost free. I would just replace it though its a pain in the butt to repair them. Usually the vaccum breaker breaks and leaks all over the place. Just put in a Legend 1/4 turn frost free they last longer ceramic disc instead of washer.

I live in Yankee land and I hate frost free bibs too. People are too lazy to shut off and drain a regular bib in the fall. There too lazy to UN screw the hose from the frost free and drain it & they still freeze and burst anyway. More $ for me every spring....
