The "backwash" prevention thing broke off of our outdoor water spigot. Now we can't attach hose. How do we replace the spigot? Is this something we should get a plumber for, or can a novice do it yourselfer attempt it?

See if you can unscrew it counter-clockwise. If it unscrews, wrap 2-3 flat turns of teflon tape clockwise only on the threads of the new one before installing it.
Good Luck!
