Air in water line

I have a problem with air in my water lines. When you turn on an exterir faucet, there is a lot of air in the line. I have purged the lines multiple times, I have looked for leakes. How can air get into the water line and not have a water leak? It is on the exterior faucets. I do not have the problem in the house. Any ideas

Is it in the water lines or the hose attached to the bib? The bib should have a vacuum breaker that would allow air to enter the hose.

When you turn on the water, up to a minute, I have air the blasts out. After it runs awhile it stops. The next time I turn on the water it starts again.

City water? Well? Cistern?

Check your bladder tank, or possibly a hole in the suction line if you have a pump.

You can get air in water lines from the public water supply when they have been working on nearby lines, tapping in new customers in the area, etc.
It should flush out in a short period of time.
If it doesn't, the public water supply has a problem, and they need to be called.
Good Luck!
