Your garden hose can cause major damage if it is not disconnected during the winter months. If the hose is left connected, ice will form and pressure will build up in water lines inside your home. This can cause a leak or a break in a water line. After disconnecting the hose you need to install an exterior faucet jacket. This will protect outdoor faucets as well as connecting lines running into the house.
