Do Outside Winter Hose Faucet Covers Really Work? - November 2020
I don't think anybody really knows the answer to that question, do they? I suppose the low cost (just a few bucks) and the low-tech solve they provide, it isn't the worst insurance you could buy as we head into Winter, right? In our house, we have frost-free hose bibs, so I haven't really worried about our hose spigots very much during the Winter, but what happens when things change in the interior of your house where the supply pipe isn't being heated the same way as it was the previous few Winters. Feels like a good time to think about using something like this? But, I'm not alone in wondering. There's a thread on StackExchange that details some thinking here.
