Beware of Your Hose Bibs!

Posted by admin on Apr 11, 2015 in Troubleshooting

Hose bibs, the faucets on the outside of your homes, are very handy.  What people don’t know is that they can also cause a lot of damage if they freeze and break during the winter.  When spring arrives and the pipe connected to the faucet thaws, it can leak and cause damage to the interior of your home.  All hoses should be removed before winter, and drips should be repaired. If the hose bib was installed correctly, it should drain out leaving it dry throughout the winter and problem free come spring.  Do a quit inspection inside your home after you turn on your hose bibs for the first time this spring, so you can catch any leaks before they cause major damage.
