Outdoor Faucet Tips for Ottawa Homeowners
Frost free hose bibs is the term plumbers use in Ottawa to describe your outdoor tap. With proper installation and maintenance, your outdoor faucets can last you up to 20 years; unfortunately though, we can’t begin to count how many times we’ve seen brand new frost free hose bibs freeze up. Your outdoor hose faucet is exposed to harsh Ottawa winter temperatures, and if they’re not maintained properly, you’re going to run into some trouble. The proper installation and maintenance of a frost free hose bib, or outdoor faucet, is to make sure that there is a drain installed upstream of a ball valve. This way, when winter arrives, and the temperatures dip below zero, you can isolate the outdoor tap or outdoor faucet by shutting the valve.
