I am only glad there were no digital cameras in the dark ages before PVC unions were available.

Found this one when I was out holiday shopping back in December. It's on a local church building. Love how the copper exits the building through the framing around the window, test cocks have been removed, rain sensor 4' off the ground and attached with electrical tape, hose bibb before the PVB (I know some of you do it this way for a drain but it defeats the purpose of the PVB and is technically not within codes here). Good stuff.

While the one in the pic is not up to code, that does not mean it is improper to install a hose bibb in this fashion, providing you put a hose bibb vac break on it.

...at which point it ceases to serve as a drain for water leaking through the indoor shutoff valve over the course of the off-season

If that is the case, then fix the damn shutoff valve.

You don't know it had a very-slow leak until next season and the $300 repair

A hose bibb vacuum breaker will drip through unless it's stuck.
