Outdoor Faucet Repair and Maintenance
Very often we walk right past our lawn faucets and spigots without even realizing they need to be repaired. These outdoor faucets especially require attention as they are exposed to the outdoor elements all year long. Over time, your outdoor spigot can become another leaky faucet, leading to wasting water and a rise in your water bill.
Plus, if your lawn faucets are not drained properly before the winter months, they can freeze and crack. Those cracks can bring leaks that can cause damage to your home’s interior, particularly in your basement. Sign up for our service plan and we’ll winterize the faucets for you each year. Trust our team of experts to get the job done right so that you can have peace of mind knowing your outdoor faucets are leak-free!
Types of Outdoor Faucets
When we talk about outdoor faucets, we are talking about any source of water that you can’t access from outside. This may be a faucet, spigot, sprinkler, hose, yard hydrant, pool filler, hose bib, hose hook-up, well, or water pump. And we believe these outdoor fixtures should be treated just as well as your inside plumbing. Especially in the summer months, you want to be able to water your garden, fill your pool, and have a working sprinkler system, right? We’ve got you covered when it comes to these outdoor faucets, and can diagnose and repair your problem as soon as possible.
Why You Need to Weatherproof Your Outdoor Fixtures
Weatherproofing your outdoor fixtures can save you a lot of pain by avoiding a burst pipe or flooded basement. What happens if you don’t weatherproof, or winterproof, your outdoor faucets is that as water freezes, it expands and that expansion can lead to a burst or cracked pipe or spigot. One thing to note is that even if your basement is heated, that interior heat will not be enough to keep your pipes, especially those leading from the outside, warm enough to keep from freezing. So, what we do to winterize your outdoor faucets is first do a thorough inspection of your outdoor spigots and determine where they lead. We will drain your pipes and spigots, potentially insulate your pipes, and lastly put a protective, insulated cover over your outdoor faucets to keep them from freezing. We highly recommend this treatment to anyone living in the midwest and places where winter gets extremely cold. If you sign up for our maintenance plan, we will include this every winter.
