When the house was renovated we had two new outdoor faucets installed.
One is on the east side of the house which is not yet hooked up (and won’t be until the water is turned on to the conservatory bathroom).
The other one is just outside the kitchen bump-out and gets lots of use mostly by Charlie.
When they were installed we were told the spigots were a special type which don’t freeze. The valve of the spigot is actually about a foot into the house so water doesn’t sit in the area of the faucet that might freeze.
Flash forward to this week and it’s dripping when turned off so Charlie called our contractor who suggested he crawl in the kitchen crawlspace (which is accessed from the conservatory side of the house).
After checking each of three sections of crawlspace for snakes (and other varmints) Charlie made his way to the turnoff valve for the outdoor spigot and now we wait until a warm day to see if anything has burst.
We definitely need this water source for the garden this spring and summer.
Have you got any annoying drips in your line?
