Factors to Consider
Before Installing a Hose Bib
Frost-Free vs. Standard Hose Bibs
When selecting your new hose bib, you can choose between standard and frost-free options.
Standard hose bibs often become damaged during freezing temperatures. The base of the spigot will freeze, causing the water inside the hose bib to freeze as well; when this happens, the hose bib will split and require replacement come spring.
Since our winters here in Harrisonburg get extremely cold, we recommend installing frost-free hose bibs to avoid hassle. These units feature a valve that shuts down the water supply when the outdoor faucet is off, which reduces chances of water freezing inside the pipe. Frost-free hose bibs are low maintenance—the winterization process simply involves making sure the hose is disconnected from the faucet.
Older homes typically have standard hose bibs. If you currently have a standard hose bib and would like to install a frost-free unit, contact us to schedule a replacement.
