Heating season officially starts on October 15th. For us it started over the weekend. It is also the time of year when we need to start winterizing.
This tip is mostly for new homeowners or for people who are new to Minnesota.
It is time to turn off the water to the outdoor faucets. Disconnect the hoses and put them away.
Easy to do:
1. Turn off the water from the inside of the house.
2. open the spigot on the outside.
What happens if you don't turn the water off? Pipes can freeze and faucets can be destroyed by ice. . . and it isnt pretty.
