Do you worry about shutting off your outdoor faucet every winter? Because of the way they were designed, older hose bibbs (outdoor faucets) are at high risk of freezing during the cold months. Fortunately, newer models of outdoor faucets have been developed that eliminate this risk entirely! If you want to install a freeze-proof hose bibb in your home, call Len The Plumber today!
Also called frost-proof bibbs, sill cocks, or freezeless faucets, freeze-proof hose bibbs 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.

Our expert Washington, D.C. area plumbing technicians will swap out your old outdoor faucets so you’ll never need to worry about frozen outdoor pipes again!
