Hose bibs are the outside spigots that you use when accessing outside water. Yard hydrants are the water lines that stick out of the ground, usually on farms, that have a handle that you lift to access water. These require special attention during cold winter months as they are more likely to freeze. If your hose bib freezes and breaks, it can cause a great deal of damage in your home. We recommend that you turn the water off to the line during winter months. If you don’t have a shut-off valve to turn the water off, contact our office today to correct this for you.
