Shut off out­door faucets

The Family Handyman - - DIY ESSENTIALS -

Turn off out­door faucets at their shut­off valves. Open the faucet and then open the bleeder cap on the shut­off valve to drain any wa­ter out of the pipe. If you don’t drain the pipe, it can still freeze and crack. Leave the bleeder cap open with a bucket un­der­neath to catch any drips. If the drip­ping con­tin­ues, your shut­off valve needs to be re­placed.
