Winter is coming and this year I want to help you protect your home from a burst pipe because it froze. Much like your water pipes (which should have foam insulation sleeves on them,) it’s important to protect your spigot on the outside of your house from freezing.
Luckily, Frost King makes this handy dandy Insulated Outdoor Faucet Cover.
Day 12: Protecting Spigots from Frozen Burst Pipes
To install the insulated cover, you simply slip the interior cord loop over the spigot handle.
Cinch the cord lock tight onto the styrofoam cover.
And your spigot is protected from freezing leading to a costly burst pipe.
The nice thing about these covers is they can be installed and removed in seconds. If you need to use your spigot, it’s simple to remove and then replace the cover.
