Summer Fun & Function: A Simple Look at Outdoor Faucets

Outdoor faucets are the cornerstone for yard work and outside play! They water our grass, clean our cars, fill up the kiddie pool, and more. Your home probably has at least one outdoor faucet. Although they are useful, we might overlook their importance until there is a problem. With summer around the corner, if you have an issue with your outdoor faucet, be sure to call a trusted, local plumber, like Mike’s Plumbing. Fix the issue now and your outdoor faucet will be ready for a summer of fun!

Unlike your kitchen sink, outdoor faucets are exposed to extreme weather. Also, they don’t normally need to produce hot water. For these reasons, there are parts of outdoor faucets and plumbing that are unfamiliar to the everyday homeowner. Some of these include: spigots and hose bibs, yard hydrants, frost-free faucets, ball-valve faucets, and anti-siphon faucets.

With freezing Northwest Indiana winters, outdoor plumbing is vulnerable to damage. Water expands when it freezes and can ruin pipes, valves, and or joints. It is helpful to prep your faucets for winter! Mike’s plumbing can assist you if your plumbing was damaged during the winter. They can also help you prevent future plumbing problems. If your outdoor faucet isn’t turning on, leaking, dripping, or any other problem or concern, call Mike’s Plumbing. At Mike’s Plumbing, we are licensed and insured and can fix your toilet problems. We are also happy to offer affordable rates! Call today at 219-808-1073 or email: Mike@nwi-plumbing.com.
