It’s Cold Outside! Keeping Your Outdoor Fixtures Protected

close up on three septic tanks for domestic wastewater treatment

Have you been staying warm this winter? According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the Southeastern parts of the United States will experience “Potent storm moves northeast from the Gulf of Mexico with moderate amounts of rain, Cold air from Canada pours south, bringing a significant freeze into the region, even Florida.” Are your outdoor fixtures ready for the freezing weather?

Outdoor Spigots

In most cases, the heat coming from your home will not be sufficient to ensure your outdoor water faucet will not freeze. If you have water in the pipes to your faucet and the water in it freezes, that water will expand and can potentially burst your pipe, valves or joints. To prevent this from happening close the shut-off valve for your faucet and disconnect your hoses. Open your faucet and let any residual water drain out of your pipe. Foam faucet covers installed over your spigots will help protect them from the freezing elements as well.


Be sure to disconnect any outdoor hoses from outdoor faucets. In addition, disconnect all hoses from each other. Let the hoses drain and then coil them, ensuring there are no pinches or kinks. Screw the ends of your hose together to prevent them from getting dirty during the winter. If you forget and leave a hose outside and it freezes, slowly thaws it by carefully bringing it inside.

At Septic Service Pro, we will provide both residents and businesses with full-service septic tank pumping and septic tank cleaning in North Georgia. You take care of your outdoor plumbing fixtures and we’ll care for all your septic issues this winter.

Septic Service Pro


Based on 117 reviews

Jim is a true professional who worked with me over months to identify and correct septic field problems. His positive attitude and helpful discussion in resolving issues is the best I found.


Mike and Shane came out and did an outstanding job on replacing our septic pump. Same day service - and they came out on a Friday evening! Mother's day would not have been very happy if they didn't save the day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!


We had our septic tank pumped and baffle tee replaced. The guys were on time, respectful and quick. They cleaned up very well after the job and even fluffed our pine straw to perfection!! We'd recommend these guys without hesitation.


Michael and Shane did an awesome job. Had to pump the septic,install a new baffle tee and tail out line. Very little yard displaced. Will definitely use Septic Service Pro again. Very pleased.


We live in Dawsonville. The crew that came out was very professional. The company owner explained to me the value and the many details about the septic that I did not know, that is why I chose them in the first place. Excellent service. R.McGary


Jim and his crew installed a new leech field for us quickly and professionally at a very reasonable cost. They handled all of the permitting and inspections and completed the work in a timely manner. Would recommend them to anyone.


Michael and assistant pointed out a leaking toilet that I didn't know I had (saved me $ there!). They also disturbed very little of the yard to get to the tank. Not the super cheapest but no hard upsell when they got here. Very pleased.


The team was efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and FAST to arrive. The bill was extremely reasonable for the work needed to be done. I would HIGHLY recommend Septic Service Pro.


These guys were amazing. Jim and Mike came when they said they would, did the job, explained everything they did. Very courteous,and professional. I am a handicapped person and felt extremely comfortable with them at my home. Thank you!!!!!
