The Model 22 Freezeless Outside tap is designed to empty the tap body and the pipe work through the wall on closing the tap thus the tap and pipe will not freeze.
If a hose etc is left connected which would prevent the tap emptying, the valve will operate upon freezing, preventing damage to the tap and pipework. However, in this case the tap could not be used until thawing occurs.
The tap contains a check valve on both the hot and cold supply pipes, if your system is gravity fed and running at less than 10 psi, then the check valve on the hot side can reduce flow to unacceptable levels. If you select "Gravity Fed" above, then the check valve will be removed from the hot side of the tap prior to shipment.
