Just purchased this hot and cold frost free spigot. It has an anti-siphoning device on the end of the outlet. I called Arrow Brass and the rep said not to leave the spigot on continuously as it will degrade the anti-siphoning device.

With the current cold only spigot, I have a 4 outlet manifold attached, with two outlets leading to garden hoses with timers and a third leading to a spigot mounted on a pole next to the house to wash off muddy boots, fresh drinking water for the dog, etc.

I plan on only using the hot side occasionally but turning the cold side off and on every time I need it kind of negates my setup and is difficult to get to..

Any way around this and should I be concerned about leaving the water on?
