In Response To: outdoor faucet (John Armbruster)

I'm guessing that you have a "freeze proof" faucet. These come in several lengths and actually shut off the water supply several inches away from the handle. If it did freeze and crack the pipe it would put the leak inside of the house. Kind of hard to explain but if you visit a home improvement store and examine one you'll see what I mean.
