I would like to move my outdoor water faucet. We are expanding our deck and the only water faucet is in the way. We would like to move it away from the house and out into the garden where we can easily reach it. Our concern is how do we winterize it, so it will not freeze. We do not have a basement, so we can not put a shut off valve in the house.
Our plan is to dig a trench and bury the pipe into the garden. Once in the garden, have the faucet come up high enough so we can get a bucket under the faucet.
My question is, how do we drain the pipe, where it comes out of the ground at the faucet, so it won't freeze?
We are in Portland, OR - where the winters are not very servere.
