Outdoor taps are incredibly handy, useful and convenient, especially during the summer months when you need access to a tap in order to water your garden. But when it comes to winter, that once useful outdoor tap could become a real opportunity for damage. During the depths of winter, when the temperatures hit the negatives there’s a real risk that your outdoor tap could freeze. This leads to any water in the tap expanding and potentially cracking the fixture or pipe – a potentially costly job. The solution to this? An insulated outside tap cover of course!
Why use an insulated outdoor tap cover?
This outdoor tap cover is designed to form an insulative barrier of warmer air around your outside taps, to prevent your tap from being exposed to freezing temperatures, ice and snow. It’s layered with polystyrene contained within a tough plastic shell and is designed to fit the majority of new or existing outdoor tap systems.
This outdoor tap shell is unique in the fact that its system is self contained. You just fit the cover and that’s it. No need to wrap your tap in bubble wrap before covering it with the shell. It’s such as simple system and it leaves your tap accessible, so it’s still easy to use even throughout winter.
