Seasonal reminder

Postby TylerM4 » Oct 10th, 2017, 12:24 pm

If you haven't been living under a rock you know that winter is on it's way and temperatures are dropping. This time of year most people are thinking about draining pools, blowing out irrigation lines, winterizing RVs/Boats, and winter tires.

Here's something else I recommend adding to your list: Disconnecting hoses from outdoor taps. Especially if you have a hose reel or something similar connected. Proper outdoor taps are freeze-proof, but only if they don't have water trapped in them. Leaving a hose attached can trap water and cause an expensive break/repair when the temp gets low enough to freeze that water.

Good reminder as I know of a few that got caught with broken pipes.
