Freezeless Yard Hydrant - Leak
 
2 Attachment(s)

I've got a yard hydrant on my property that when fully closed, leaks. Having just moved here and not familiar with these types of spigots, I'm not sure where the adjustment should be made or, if it requires a replacement.
I've attached 2 pictures. You can see that to stop the flow of water, the handle is not fully closed. I noticed yesterday that it had started leaking again as it moved slightly from the position that keeps the water flow stopped. I've not yet figured out this property on where the cutoff is for the yard spigots so, I a little concerned about making a small problem a bigger one. I have a cutoff in my basement for the house, but, I'm not sure if the 3 water lines on the 6 acres comes from the house, or directly from the well at the front of my property.
