I made a repair on one today, was simple to take apart and easy to replace the 1/4 turn cartridge in it, anyone else get to fix these yet?
Not a pressure issue, probably cause by cold temps we had. I don't install this brand anyways, I use woodford, it was just cheaper to fix it with an $8 part. Not saying there no good, just saying there simple to fix.Don't scare me, I just started installing them this year. No problems yet (knock on wood) Like any other ceramic disc cartridge, control the pressure (regulation, thermal expansion) and they will last.
It's hard to tell a customer their leaking hose bibb is caused by a few hundred bucks but it will save you a recall and get you referrals. Especially when you throw in the comments like "have you fixed a toilet lately? Or, dripping faucet? THAT'S where the pressure has been going." Seriously Ron, address their pressure issue.

Thank you Ron!You mean the vacuum breaker on the top of them? It prevent contamination back into the water supply, required on all hosebibs here.
They split cause who ever installed them did not install them correctly, they need a slight pitch on them so water won't stay trapped in it.
Where do you say washer. You mentioned nothing of a washer till after this post after you said this, did I miss something?Why are they the only manufacturer to offer a relief valve? Because of their piss poor design. It helped to remove their "back check", but not totally.
