Hose spigots, or as we refer to them as hose bibs, are a common request for service among homeowners. The main reasons are they tend to leak or the valve that actuates them fails to operate correctly. This can be a pre-cursor to extreme plumbing issues if not repaired. The reason being is that the pipes can freeze and ultimately burst. So, if yours is leaking or not working properly it is best to have it repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

Upgrading Your Faucet
Anti-frost hose bibs are the new normal among residential homes. The reason is that they prevent any water from remaining in the pipe outside of the conditioned walls of your home. With the water shut-off located within the conditioned space of your home, the water cannot freeze and the pipe cannot burst.
Making the Switch
The switch from a conventional hose bib to a frost-free one is a simple task and can usually be accomplished within 1-2 hours. The piece of mind that comes along with them is priceless.
If your faucet is leaking or not functioning properly it is time to make the repair.
