No more frozen faucets! The Woodford frost-proof outdoor faucet below illustrates how the water can be shut off several inches into the home. The brilliance of this faucet is the fact that the shut-off is in the home – not outdoors like in traditional outdoor faucets.
Basement Flooding Avoidance
Have you ever had a hose left on an outdoor faucet? If there is a hard freeze in Denver, water in the tube will fail to drain, and then the water will begin to freeze and push ice up the hose into the house. This ice will then split the pipe inside your home. Guess what happens the next time the faucet is used? The wall will fill up with water and your basement will flood. Unfortunately, this scenario is more common than most people think. The good news is that all this mess can be avoided by installing a frost-proof outdoor faucet or silcock.
