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?

Thanks.

Out of curiosity, why not have one spigot for just cold that can stay on all the time, and the mixer for when you need hot/warm water. Only takes an extra T on the cold line.
