It's technically a vacuum breaker. It prevents backflow through the hosebib.

It is not a flow restrictor, it is a backflow preventer. Does it have some restriction on flow?...Yes.

If you are referring to the backflow preventer/vacuum breakere, then all hose bibbs are required to have them, not just new ones.

Thanks for your replies so far. No, i dont mean the anti-siphon device, i mean a water restrictor that controls GPM flow above and beyond the anti-siphon restriction.
