This spigot in particular.

Attachment Attached File


God forbid we angle the relief valve holes, or the actual spigot part down at a slight angle, stupid idiot. I especially like the low profile and sleek design of the relief valve so you don't even see it as part of the unit.

There was one of these things on a building I was working on today, hooked up the hose, turned it on with a church key and did what I needed to do. Went over to shut it off and stood directly in front of it, as one might so inclined to do when turning off a hose spigot, turned the church key to the left and blam, it was like opening a fire hydrant and pointing it at my balls.

This building is on the town water, plenty of pressure there, the splash zone for this thing must be 39 feet.

So to the person that designed this thing when they should have been designing a stand alone dick washing unit for commercial dick wash locations, fuck you in particular, my pants and shirt were soggy for 2 hours.

You have to be smarter than the plumbing fixture.

OP is correct, those are junk.

That's a hose bib.

I'm tempted to send a helper down there to "wash the job" and secretly film them also getting blasted by this thing when they pick up.

In my experience the little box in the wall they put these in is filled with angry bees

Those are on the outside of our church. My BIL has learned to stand aside of them.

Most anti siphon valves like that I see are already broken. That one looks like a bitch to repair or replace. On the residential hose bibs, the allen set screw head rusts away, and it is angled so you can't drill it out. Unscrew it and it neatly carves off the threads.

Our house has some goofy thing attached to all exterior faucets, supposed to keep them from freezing. Problem is any setting other than full open the stupid fitting drips to no end. I removed them all.

Fess up, OP - a squirrel jumped out at you and you pissed yourself. This is just part of you trying to convince yourself that it didn't really happen that way.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 8:26:02 PM EDT
Could have taken the sprayer off the end of the hose before closing the valve, nah, too hard. How do backpressure work?
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 8:28:17 PM EDT
LOL.

Counterclockwise to close?


Lefty tighty, righty loosey!

That's just an inefficient use of time when you have 150 feet of hose attached and were using it on the other side of the building.

I meant from looking out from the building, like driving a car, you always do your left and right based on the view from the drivers seat. So from inside the office it was a clear left.

LOL.  Sorry OP but BTDT before, once.  (maybe twice, hungover second time)  It was in southern Mississippi in the summer though so I was already soaking wet, actually cooled me off a bit.  I watch out for them now.

A few posters of the "righty tighty" don't know how those work.  The back pressure valve releases when you turn the valve off.  OP knows how to turn off a hose bib.  

FWIW, I hate those stupid back pressure valves.  The damn things wear out / break and end up leaking when they shouldn't.  Have seen several that had broken and would relieve pressure every time you let off of the trigger on a sprayer.  Honestly, how often did it happen that a town water supply was somehow corrupted because someone left a hose under pressure?
