HOW TO WINTERIZE YOUR OUTSIDE FAUCETS

Posted by Darryl D Robinson on November 8, 2014 at 11:20 PM

Whoa!  All of a sudden it's below freezing outside!  What happened to the beautiful leaves on the trees and the  warm fall weather?  Time to winterize the outside faucets against freezing.   Remove  the hose from your outside faucets.  If they are the newer frost proof faucets that's all you have to do.  If you have  older outside sill cocks,  they require more attention.  Close the shut off inside your home.  Open the faucet outside and let it drain.   If the inside shut off valve is a stop and waste type, open the waste port on the side of the stop and let it drain.  Of course if you want to update that old style sill cock to the maintenance free sill cock you  can always call us for a free estimate. Now you are ready for a worry free winter!
