Outdoor Faucets & Vacuum Breakers in San Luis Valley
Our Plumbers Protect Your Water Supply
It’s important to protect your home’s water supply for the health and well-being of yourself and your entire family.

About Our Outdoor Faucets
While many homeowners may assume there is no difference between one outdoor faucet and the next, this is actually not the case. You may not think about these plumbing fixtures very often, yet they can cause major problems for your home when leaks occur, or when the Colorado winter sets in and they start to freeze or even burst. To ensure your house’s water supply is protected and to provide an ongoing water source for your exterior property and lawn, it is important to hire a professional plumber to periodically have your outdoor faucets serviced.
At High Elevation Plumbing, we provide repairs and replacements for outdoor faucets including:
- Hose Bibs: On a hose bib, the control valve is located close to the handle of the spout. This makes the faucet more likely to freeze, so although they are common, hose bibs are not found outdoors as much in states like Colorado.
- Sillcocks: Sillcocks, sometimes known as frost-free faucets or anti-siphon outdoor faucet hydrants, look like hose bibs except they have long pipes running to where the water valve is located. Above the handle of sillcocks is an anti-siphon valve. Positioning the water valve like this keeps the water away from the outdoor temperatures, which may cause it to freeze.
- Garden Taps: Garden taps are about as common as hose bibs, and look extremely similar. The main difference is that the faucet is positioned for homeowners to attach a hose from the bottom, as opposed to horizontally.
- House Hydrants: House hydrants are a new and still fairly uncommon type of outdoor faucet. This fixture allows you to access your water supply outside of your home by simply twisting in a connector, rather than struggling with a hose. These devices are known for being drip-free, and are also less likely to freeze during the winter.
Vacuum Breakers in San Luis Valley
A vacuum breaker is a device designed to stop water that leaves your faucet from going back into your plumbing system. They are extremely useful for preventing backflow and back-siphoning, and can be installed anywhere your water is used for something other than drinking. Vacuum breakers are very important on outside faucets, which are exposed to the elements all year and can cause contamination in your water supply without protection. Luckily, High Elevation Plumbing offers vacuum breakers to keep your property safe and your family healthy. If you believe there is any chance your home is dealing with missing or broken vacuum breakers, call our San Luis Valley plumbers for installation today.
