nicks right, its an atmospheric vacuum breaker to keep your potable water from being contaminated.
they usually have a little “set screw” that is designed to break off inside it after installation. It is designed to leak AFTER it shuts off. If the thing leaks under full pressure then it needs to be replaced.
