Don’t Let your Faucets Freeze.

It may seem weird to talk about it now, but the time will come soon enough when winter weather hits and outdoor faucets freeze.  As water freezes, it expands and as it expands it can produce thousands of pounds of pressure per square inch. This pressure is what causes a water pipe to rupture.  It is just a scientific fact!

The surest way to prevent your outside faucet from freezing is to disconnect all of your outside hoses.  Now that is the smart move when the temperature drops drastically. Those of us who have lived in Chicagoland’s Northwest Suburbs will remember how quickly late summer turns into early winter in the blink of an eye.
