Focus on all outdoor waterlines, including:
- Hose bibs
- Waterlines to pool cabanas
- Waterlines to barns
Consider switching to a frost free hose bib (hose bib that can be used year round, and is protected from freezing).
Making Winter Easier on Farms
- Install frost free yard hydrants, to be used instead of hauling heavy buckets of water, or pulling a hose to provide water to the animals
- A frost free hydrant has waterlines that are buried 4 feet underground, which drain back down after each use, to avoid freezing
