If you haven’t upgraded to frost free hose bibs, you might find your outside faucets have had water sitting in the pipe and frozen. Upgrading can help prevent unwanted freezing which can lead to major water damage in the spring.
Get ready for spring
It is time to get ready for spring and start preparing your yard and garden. It also means you should check the exterior facets to get them running.
If you have a frost-free faucet, any remaining water in the pipe drains out so your pipes no longer have water sitting in them that can freeze.
This cost-effective solution can save you thousands of dollars preventing frozen lines from rupturing and sending water flowing down the inside wall.
ProTip: Winterizing your exterior faucets doesn’t just include turning the water off, disconnect the hose from the hose bib as well.
