How to Pick the Right Faucet
Faucets come in many different styles and shapes. With all of those styles and shapes, there are just as many companies out there that make them. Remember, not all companies are created equal, but there are a few things you can do to know if you are getting a quality faucet.
When you are shopping for a new faucet, or you are given the option between a few faucets by your plumber, make sure you try these two tests.
Does it feel light? The first test is to hold it in your hand. Make sure that the one you are buying is not feather light - the less it weighs, the cheaper it was to build.
Is there a different color when it’s scratched? The second test is to make a small scratch on the inside of the faucet where it connects to the sink; this way, no one can see the scratch. Make sure that when you scratch it, you don't see a different color underneath the faucet color. This will let you know the quality of the coating and if it will tarnish or not.

Need to Repair or Replace a Hose Bib?
The hose bib, or an outdoor faucet where you attach your garden hose, needs to be winterized in order to protect your pipes during the cold winter months. The process of winterization includes turning off the water valve connected to the hose bib and letting any remaining water inside drain out. If these tasks are not completed, you could find yourself dealing with cracked or leaking pipes come springtime.
