Have you ever left a hose outside attached to the faucet in the winter? I’m sure a lot of people have experienced the horror of the basement flooding because the leftover water in the hose backed up into the faucet plumbing, then it expanded when it froze and broke the pipes. If this sounds familiar you might want to consider installing a frost-free faucet. A frost-free outdoor faucet is designed to extend into the exterior of the house along with the flow valve so that it’s inside the heated interior to prevent freezing. The best time to install this faucet is in the summer because winter is just around the corner. This is something every homeowner should think about installing to avoid costly repairs.
