If you live in an area that ever experiences freezing temperatures, you need to buy a frost free faucet. It is important to have the right outdoor faucet as your home and property could be at risk of flooding from a ruptured faucet if it is not designed to handle freezing conditions.
This is why Eagle Mountain Products clearly explains which of our high-quality Woodford outdoor faucets are designed to withstand freezing temperatures. An example of a frost free faucet is our Model 17 Anti-Siphon, which is one of our more popular faucets. Intended for year-round residential use regardless of the temperature, the Model 17 will not rupture in freezing weather if the valve is shut off and the hose is disconnected.
Another Woodford faucet that is a great choice for anyone who lives in areas with freezing weather is the Model 19 that can also be used year-round but is additionally rupture protected. The Model 19 comes with a patented resetting pressure relief valve that is designed to prevent the faucet casing tube from bursting in freezing conditions even when a hose is left connected.
Eagle Mountain recommends the sturdy Model 22 or Model V22 for customers who want to be able to access both hot and cold water regardless of how cold it is outside. It too contains our patented resetting pressure relief valve so you are protected from the faucet rupturing even with the hose attached. The handy faucet is equipped with separate hot and cold inlet tubes to provide manually operated temperature control. Furthermore, it contains an integral backflow protection device so it does not require an add-on vacuum breaker.
