Leaky outdoor faucets or broken pipes can be both annoying and costly household issues. Both indoor and outdoor faucets need repair at times. Outdoor faucets are more exposed to elements and may at times require serious repair. For this reason, repairing outdoor faucets is less of a do-it-yourself matter.
Outdoor faucets are used during spring, summer and fall to water our gardens, wash our cars, fill out pools and provide life outdoors. We take this water supply for granted and assume it will work when needed.
Outdoor faucet issues during Spring
Throughout the cold Canadian winters many problems can occur but the most common comes from frozen pipes. If even a small amount of water is left in the pipe during the winter it can freeze, expand and crack pipes. This causes issue in outdoor hoses, fixtures, faucets, pipes and irrigation systems. Often times these issues are not discovered until spring when the home owner turns on the water supply again for the first time. At that point the problem becomes one that must be solved immediately.
Why do it immediately?
Even if the frozen pipe does not cause a major leak it is still something that should be repair immediately. Every time you see water running from a faulty faucet, you actually see your money running down the drain. Even if it is just dripping or trickling, it requires immediate repair, because things may get worse overnight. It may flood your (and maybe your neighbors’) area and cause an even more serious material damage.
