Prevent Water Damage

Disconnect Your Hose Before Winter & Save Your Pipes

It may sound simple, but a surprising number of insurance claims stem from garden hoses that remain connected to an outdoor valve in freezing weather. The reason? There is usually a direct connection from inside water lines to the valve outside. When ice freezes in the hose outside, it will travel through the water lines of your home. Water expands and freezes as it travels through the lines and can cause weakened areas of the line to burst inside the home. So, disconnect that hose from the house this fall, and keep water damage at bay.
