Hose Bibs and Outdoor Faucets

Every year in the Fall all outdoor faucets, spighots, and hose bibs must be properly winterized. If the outdoor fixtures are not properly winterized or not winterized at all for the season, any water in the hose bib or outside faucets will freeze, expand, and crack the valve and/or piping. After Winter, in the Spring, when outdoor fixtures and hoses are turned back on and if the piping happens to be cracked, water will flow and leak into the wall and flood the area.
The way to properly winterize a hose bib:

  1. 1. Any hose bib attached to the faucet must be disconnected.
  2. 2. Locate the shut off valve and open liter on side of valve.
  3. 3. Open outdoor faucet.
  4. 4. In some cases, compressed air must be blown in the bleeder valve and/or remove the stem of the outdoor faucet to allow water to pour into drain.

Proper winterization can be done carefully by a homeowner that has good mechanical skills. MTP Plumbing & Heating LLC does provide this service and recommends a professional to perform this service at your home.
