Installing a Frost-Free Outdoor Hose Bib

Installation Instructions

Frost-Free Outdoor Hose Bib
If you live in a colder climate, your water pipes may be susceptible to freezing, particularly an outdoor hose bib on the outside wall of your house. Since water expands as it freezes, this situation can burst your pipes, causing water damage to your house. To help prevent this install a frost-free outdoor hose bib designed to keep water away from the cold elements. A frost-free outdoor hose bib contains a long stem that places the actual water shut off about 10 inches inside the house.
