Avoiding Frozen Pipes
The sun sets a lot earlier, breath is visible outside and noses become runnier; these are all telltale signs that the weather is getting colder. Most people don't know, but along with the changes in bodily defenses the cold weather means frozen pipes. Why are frozen pipes such a big deal? As the water that is left in your pipes freeze the water expands opening up seams, cracks and holes in copper that pipes are made of. Eventually that ice will melt allowing all the pressurized water to find an escape through the gates created by that unforgiving ice resulting in water damage.
Most people don't know that there are some VERY easy and inexpensive ways to prevent this from happening.
1) Disconnect your hose!
2) Hose bib cover!
Very easy! Super inexpensive.
