Another outdoor plumbing issue that may hound homes are frozen pipes. The best thing to do is to detach the garden hose even before the winter season sets in to avoid freezing the water that runs through the hose, the pipes, and the outdoor faucet. Frozen pipes that will end up bursting can be a problematic and expensive plumbing issue.
