One of the most important things you can do to keep an outdoor faucet from freezing during the wintry season is to remove the hose. If a hose is attached to the faucet it can prevent residual water from draining. The trapped water can freeze and in turn expand, which ruptures the pipe.
We have plenty of hose bib covers in stock and the home centers sell them as well. They are inexpensive and take 30 seconds to install, so no excuses! Stay warm out there this winter.
