The time has come to use outside faucets. That means turning on the water to the outside using the same faucet that was turned the opposite direction last fall to turn it off.


But in very cold winters like we just had, it's possible for the pipe which carries water to freeze, expand and burst. This can happen if there was some water left in the pipe when you turned if off. You likely wouldn't have noticed when it happened because the water was turned off and the only water escaping would have been what was left in the pipe.


But if freezing did happen, you'll want to discover it right away before lots of water escapes. It's worth taking a minute to check the pipe to the outside where it passes through the wall to make sure there's no water escaping.


We've seen cases where water escaped for hours before being discovered. You can imagine the mess and the expense!
