outdoor anti siphon spigot

hello.
the anti siphon knob is broken off the spigot. can i just get a new valve (knob) or does the whole spigot need to be replaced?
the spigot is 5.5 years old.
thank you!

By "antisiphon knob" I assume you mean the round plastic thing that's on top of the spigot. That's actually just the cap - the rest of the device is threaded into the spigot body. If so, it is replaceable - I just got a new one for around $5.00. You'll probably have to go to a real plumbing supply house. My local big box didn't have it.

anti siphon knob

thank you...that sounds about right...it's just the knob. the only problem i can see is that there is some white plastic stuck inside the thing. i don't know how i can get it out. prying didn't seem to work.

The cap usually just pops off. The white part is threaded into the body of the spigot. If it's been exposed to the elements for long, it will be pretty brittle. I just broke mine up with a screwdriver and pulled out the pieces. No big deal.
