Traps and Taps Tuesday Tip of the Week (#9)

Hello everyone!  The cold weather is starting to creep up on us.  Make sure you are prepared by winterizing your outside hose bibs.  Shutting them off and draining them properly.  Even a frost free hose bibb can burst during winter conditions.

It is also very important to make sure you have removed your garden hoses from the outside hose bibs because having the hose attached will stop the water from draining properly.

Feel free to call us at Traps and Taps plumbing if you have any questions,  I am here to help!
