Through Google Glass — How much is that kitty in the window?

Outdoor Faucet Protector


I've always heard that outdoor faucets can freeze and then, when they thaw, crack the connected pipe, unleashing massive in-house flooding.

Until this year I never did anything about my two outdoor faucets, one on each side of my house, useful for attaching hoses.

But for some reason this year I'm more house-conscious (this may well be part of an overall rebound effect from my nearly two-year-long major depression which ended on October 3 of last year) and prone to do stuff to take care of my place.

So I got two of these outdoor faucet protectors after having my Crack Research Team®™© drill down on Amazon to find what appears to be the best of the many options.

Nice to have the Crack Research Team®™© back, eh?

Don't ask.

But I digress.

I can report that so far my pipes haven't cracked with these puppies covering them — so that means they work, right? Oh.

$1.18 — cheap at twice the price.
