My outside water faucet is putting out leaves when turned on. what could be causing this?


Dear Kevin:

It is very unusual that you would have leaves coming out of an outside water faucet.

Do you have an anti-siphon valve in this faucet? If not, then it could be possible that water is being drawn up from a garden hose into your house. If this is the case, then you should replace this faucet as soon as possible with one that does have an anti-siphon valve. Most towns require this to prevent any contamination of domestic water supplies from attached hoses.

Hope this is helpful.
