Unless you have little ones around the house what on earth are we talking about here? No, not the ones that your babies have around their necks, but the ones outside of your home. A HOSE bib or bibcock is a tap having a nozzle that is bent downward. Most Chicagoland homes have them as they are used prominently in warmer weather.
So…we have made it (or just about, anyway) through another long winter. Our World Champion Cubbies start playing next month! However, you might discover the hard way that, against your plumber’s advice, your hose bibbs have been connected ALL winter without being used. Guess what? You could already have a leak and not even know until we get a proper spring thaw.
Let a professional plumber replace those old hose bibbs with new “frost proof” ones. That way you will never come face to face with this problem again. A burst pipe can be a disaster. To help avoid this potential catastrophe call Elgin area plumbing expert Tom’s Plumbing Inc. at (847) 697-6444 right away.
