Winterizing Tip: Frozen Hose Bibs
Fall is fast approaching and the winter season right behind. Before freezing temps begin, some care should be taken before winter sets in. Remove all of the garden hoses from their hose bibs outside, and drain the hoses before putting them away. If possible shut off the water to the exterior lines and drain. Failure to do so could result in damage to your hose bibs/faucets. This could possibly allow ice to form in the pipes connected to it and split. Needless to say a split pipe and water pressure make a bad combination.
