There appears to be no physical way to get at the washer on my home’s backyard sillcock. Removing the nut over the stem reveals what appears to be a completely sealed unit. The stem does not unscrew and I can’t get at the washer. Has anyone ever dealt with such a device. Replacing the whole sillcock would require some major demolition to the ceiling of my shower, which I would like to avoid. Help, I’m at my wits end.
Try to get the name of the manufacturer. This could be a J. R. Smith or other type of frost proof hose bib.
If it is a J.R. Smith your going to need a rebuilding kit with the extractor key (for lack of better name) that fits inside the valve to allow stem removal. Do not improvise as you may damage this faucet.
