With Spring finally being here, it’s time to water the lawn. What? Your outside faucet is busted, leaking or otherwise shot? Don’t worry, it’s not that uncommon.
The reason that your water pipes bust open or crack is because water expands as it freezes, and you probably didn’t drain your pipes last fall or winter. This is true of all outside water faucets or seal cocks, whether they be iron, lead or PVC. Doesn’t matter if new or old either, if a pipe is strong enough to handle the occasional stress of frozen water, the cumulative effect can weaken the structural integrity of the pipe and eventually, it will pop, even the newer ones.dd
