Winterizing your outside sillcocks
Once the summer has past and you are getting ready to winterize your home…one thing that can commonly be missed is the winterization of your outside sillcocks. Sometimes people to turn off their sillcocks and drain them down before we have a winter freeze. If you miss making sure they are drained out it can lead to a potential water problem should they defrost and have split without you even realizing that it happened. Make sure that if you have a shut off inside your home you shut it off and turn on the outside sillcock to make sure it has drained out so that this won’t happen to you.
