        My frostfree outdoor spigot leaks when on, how do I repair this? I live in a townhouse with no basement.

          If it is leaking where handle comes out turn it off tight and take off handle and the big nut and put a little grafite string packing around stem going clock wise. First you can try tightenung the nut with valve open. If it dont work go the other way.

            Probably just need to tighten the packing nut a little.
