COMMUNITY STANDARDS

Winter Preparation of Hose Bibs - With the cold front approaching and a potential frost on the way, it’s time to retire your garden hose! Every year it’s important to turn off your outdoor water supply lines correctly – however, if it’s done incorrectly, any water left in the supply line can freeze and expand, causing the pipes to split. Click here to follow step-by-step tips to make sure that your hose bib is prepared for winter.
