Kingston, ON – During the cold winter season, it is not uncommon for outdoor pipes to freeze. Because of the fluctuating weather in Canada, the water in hose bibs continue to freeze, melt, and expand throughout the year until it causes leaks, cracks, and bursts. That is why Kingston plumbers from John the Plumber recommend that homeowners install a frost free hose bib and prevent unnecessary damages to their piping.
Unlike a regular faucet, the valve chamber of a frost-free hose bib is approximately 60 cm to ensure that when the faucet is off, no water will be close enough to cause damages when it gets cold. Unfortunately, frost free hose bibs can still be damaged by the cold, which is why it is always a good idea to tighten any loose outdoor faucets before the cooler fall and winter seasons.
Homeowners who are beginning to notice leaks now that the weather is getting warmer are encouraged to contact a Kingston Plumber from John the Plumber.
