Time To Winterize!

Halloween approaches and we have had our first brush with the threat of winter weather with some flurries in the air. If the flurries aren't reminder enough, it's the time of year where you should start preparing for winter.

Get out there and make sure your hoses have been removed from your outdoor faucets. A hose that is left attached to an outdoor faucet does not allow the water to drain out properly and is then susceptible to freezing and breaking and potentially a flooded basement.

***IMPORTANT*** If you installed a vacuum breaker on your outdoor faucet to protect against cross connection, remove these too as they sometimes don't let the water drain properly.

So take a moment and save yourself a headache. Your future self thanks you!
