ATTENTION HOMEOWNERS – Make sure to unhook your hoses from the spigots this winter. If you don’t, the water inside the hose (especially when coiled up horizontally) will freeze if it isn’t completely drained. This freezing water will back up the pipe and allow ice to begin freezing and build pressure inside the pipes under the house and eventually will crack or burst the pipes.
It is always recommended in the winter unhook your hoses and even install those special $0.99 caps you can buy from the hardware store.
Hope this help!
