Hose Faucet Broken or Defective any fix?

We are just settling in a new home and discovered one of our outdoor hose faucets will not accept any normal female hose hook up.  The end of the faucet is very thin with little to attach to and the mouth of the faucet is slightly bigger than any standard hose hook up. It appears that a piece might be missing from the end of the faucet.   Any way to fix this problem?  Please see attached picture.  Thanks

Hi NewPaladin,

It appears to be a 1 inch outlet, based on your photos, you can by an adapter to go from 1 inch to 3/4 inch hose thread. You may have to go to a plumbing supply house to get it, so call around first.

Hello NewPaladin.

I have had 2 customers in recent memory bring in what look like vacuum breakers that have malfunctioned, looking for replacements.  They both had female connections to an outside spigot which were similar to the 1"-1 1/8" fine thread shown on your picture.  In both cases these parts were from commercial buildings, but apparently these spigots have also been used in homes.  I would say that an integrated vacuum break is the "part" you are missing.  As Mike said, you will likely only find such a part at a plumbing supply house that carries commercial inventory.
