Winterizing your outdoor faucets is one of the must do tasks before the winter season hits hard. Doing this chore in a timely manner protects the pipes from freezing and prevents their rupture. Burst pipes can be a cause of trouble for you as water infiltrates the walls, ceilings and floors making your house damp and musty. You may have to spend thousands of dollars to fix this problem. Therefore, it’s better to take the right steps proactively to save yourself from unnecessary hassle.
Steps to Winterize a Conventional Outdoor Faucet
- Turn off the water supply to the faucet. Also, turn off the shut-off valve closest to your outdoor valve in your basement or garage.
- Remove the spray nozzle if the hose is attached to the faucet. Drain the hose thoroughly, repair any pin holes and coil it neatly. Keep the hose horizontally on a flat surface away from snow and direct sunlight.
