Cold weather is upon us. The last thing we want to happen is for our outdoor faucets to freeze up causing pipes to burst and water to run wild inside our walls. Here’s what you need to do to minimize potential problems:
1. Disconnect your hose from your outside faucet.
2. If you have a shutoff valve inside the house for the outside spigot, turn it off and then open the outside spigot to drain the water.
3. Go to your favorite hardware store and buy faucet covers and install them on all your outside spigots. They cost $1.00 at most stores.
