A proof exterior faucet freezing or frost allows access to water your yard in winter. Unlike other outdoor shower faucets, you can use one, even when the temperature drops considerably. Understand how your tap frost-proof works will help in maintaining it when generating problems.
Danger of frost
A tap at the outdoor stands on the outside wall of a house or other building. When the outdoor temperature drops to the point where water freezes or below that temperature, water from a faucet to the open air or outdoor shower faucets can freeze and faucet or piping that connects this can burst or rupture, which leads to flooding in the basement of your house.

A tap at the outdoor freeze proof has a slightly different configuration than other outdoor shower faucets, allowing you to use it during the winter without fear of freezing water and cause the faucet or pipe burst.
