With all the ice and snow lately a friend of mine sent me this idea for an improvised method to winterize a water spigot. I tried it and it works.
Unfortunately due to the weather I was working a lot of overtime and I could not get this video out until now.
Basically a outdoor winter water spigot cover works by insulating the faucet from the cold outside temperatures.
Today’s video shows a way to do this without buying a cover. I think this is easier, but my wife would probably prefer a store bought solution.
Since trapped air can make an effective insulator, My friend wondered if multiple layers of plastic grocery bags could work.
Since I keep and reuse my grocery bags I simply grabbed a handful and loosely wrapped them in layers over the spigot and then held it in place with some duct tape.
I think this is a good idea to keep in the back of your head just in case. Especially as a way to keep your mind open to work around solutions.
Thanks for the great idea Raging Main…
