AFOC comment of the night. Garden hoses are generally attached to sill cocks and sill cocks, be they anti-siphon or conventional, are globe valves. Globe valves, most commonly seen in boiler drains, have a rubber seat. Gate valves, which are used as block valves in most applications, have a brass gate and no seat. The valve pictured is a gate valve and, after removal, will be of little marginal utility in any gardening scenario.
