Do you worry about shutting off your outdoor faucet every winter? Because of the way they were designed, older hose bibs (outdoor faucets) are at high risk of freezing during the cold months. Fortunately, newer models of outdoor faucets, or hose bibs, have been developed that eliminate this risk entirely! If you want to install a freeze proof hose bib in your home, call Len the Plumber today!
Also called frost proof bibs, sill cocks or freezeless faucets, freeze proof hose bibs prevent water from sitting in the unprotected, unheated end of the supply pipe. They do this by keeping the valve seat (the point where the water stops when the faucet is off) inside your warm home.
If you’re tired of struggling with freezing hose bibs or outdoor faucets, don’t wait – fill out the form to the right or pick up the phone and call us today! Our expert Baltimore, Washington DC, and Northern Virginia plumbing technicians will swap out your old outdoor faucets so you’ll never need to worry about frozen outdoor pipes again!
