Frost-Free Hose Bib Services in Milwaukee County

Freeze Danger for Outside Water Faucets in Milwaukee & Waukesha Counties

An outdoor garden hose faucet sits on the exterior wall of your home. When the temperature outside drops below freezing, the water in an outdoor faucet may freeze, and the faucet or the pipe that connects to it can burst or rupture, leading to flooding in the house's basement. Every spring thaw, we receive many calls regarding this problem and want to prevent this from happening to you.

Rozga Plumbing & Heating Corp. is your Milwaukee County plumbing company offering frost-free hose bib services that can protect against damage to your property. Our professional team has the tools and knowledge to provide you with the perfect solution.

Winterizing Outside Water Faucets

You can prevent water damage to your home by winterizing your outside faucets each Fall. Turning off the water supply to your outside faucets and draining them through the shut-off valves' small bleeder cap is the best way to prevent this problem with the old-style valves. This shut off/bleeder valve is normally located in the basement ceiling just inside your hose faucets' exterior location. If this shut off valve has not been used in a while, it may not cooperate and may require a replacement.

The Frost-Free Difference

Frost-free faucets, sometimes known as freeze-proof faucets, are not only recommended but required by Wisconsin State Plumbing Code. While they work in the same way as your ordinary outdoor faucet they also have the added benefit of having a shut-off valve located inside the home basement. Shutting off the water before reaching the spout outside of the house keeps the water warm enough to prevent any freezing during those cold winter months which could cause ruptured or burst pipes leading to a disaster in your home.

Code Compliance

In the event you need an outside faucet replaced, the frost-free hose bib is the only legal option under Wisconsin Plumbing Code. Sooner or later, you will need to upgrade. So give us a call and enjoy the benefits today!
