Why is my outdoor faucet leaking?

If the spigot is leaking around the valve stem when the water is turned on, it can usually be fixed by tightening the packing nut behind the handle 1/8 to 1/4 turn. If the faucet still leaks after tightening the packing nut, the washer on the end of the valve stem needs to be replaced.

Why does my outside spigot leak?

If the faucet leaks from around the handle just when the water is turned on, the stem packing may be leaking. In some cases, you can fix this by simply tightening the retaining nut that’s under the handle. If your faucet leaks out of the spout when it’s turned off, the washer is bad.
