Frost-free sillcock

Frost-free sillcocks are designed that the shut-off valve is located about 8 to 12 inches inside the sillcock pipe. This puts the water line inside the house. The further the sillcock reaches inside the heated walls, the lower the chance of a bursting pipe. When going to replace a leaky or broken sillcock most people install a frost-free. The frost free sillcock makes it so the water gets turned off inside the home and then can be drained on the outside. Purchasing a frost free faucet can be anywhere from $30-$65 and up. If your going through the trouble of having an exterior faucet leak on a hose bib (sillcock) replaced make sure you spend the extra money and install a frost-free style if you have room for the thicker pipe.
