ASSE 1019-A Frost Free Valve / Spigot Stuck on Full Blast,
A.S.S.E. 1019-A Frost Free Valve / Spigot Stuck on Full Blast,

Just bought house a year ago and existing hardware outside.. No idea what it is.

Right now I have the water to it turned off. I would have to cut open perfectly finished basement to replace the whole unit. Id rather never use the spigot again. :.)
Top Cap: Left: ASSE1019-A
Left: ASSE1019-A
Right:B8-K UPC
Handle: has been worn unreadable.

What Brand and Model is this?

Does anyone know if i can buy the innards to it and where?

Here is a video on how to replace the cartridge and hopefully stop the gushing faucet. All the work can be done from outside. You may need to go to a real plumbing supply house instead of a home center to get the parts so I wouldn't try to tackle this project on a weekend or holiday.

General Disclaimer

Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.

My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

good luck getting that epoxy putty off the spigot.

sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?
