We strongly recommend the first time to use your outdoor faucet in the Spring that you check the inside of your home for any water leaks shortly after turning on your outdoor faucets to avoid any major damage.
Leaking outside faucets
Generally, outside faucets leak due to long term wear and tear or freezing weather. The longer a leak continues on an outdoor faucet, the more damage that will occur not only to the faucet but potentially to your home as well. A slow leak inside walls will not be visible until substantial damage has already occurred.
Freeze breaks occur on outdoor faucets when a hose or other restricting device is left attached and the water cannot drain from the faucet properly. As the temperature drops below freezing, the water in the faucet begins to freeze. The freezing conditions begin from the outside of the house in the faucet back toward the interior as the water continues to freeze inside the valve body. Once the water has frozen inside the faucet itself and the faucet has been shut off, there is no relief from the ice causing expanding pressure. Eventually the copper tubing of the valve body will burst to relieve the pressure. Normally noticeable damage is not visible in the home at this time. Only a few drops of water may leak through the split pipe at the time of the freeze damage. Once the weather warms, the water in the faucet will melt. Luckily, the burst in the tubing is after the shut off valve, therefore water will not leak out of the burst tubing until the water is turned on. Thus, there can be a considerable amount of time between the actual rupture of the tubing and the discovery of the problem.
