Outdoor faucet freeze protector operates like a thermostat. Made of brass, stainless steel and cold impact-resistant polypropylene. Senses the internal water temperature arriving to the faucet, not the air temperature. Activates when the water temperature hits 37 degrees. No water can drip until the activation temperature is attained. As the water temperature fluctuates, so does the drip.
Installation: Thread to an outdoor faucet by hand. Turn faucet on all the way to ensure water pressure is available. If there is seepage, hand tighten until it stops.
Tip: Prior to cold season, it is a good idea to place the Freeze Miser in a freezer for several hours. Then quickly place on an outdoor faucet and open faucet; water should discharge through and flow should stop in a short period of time.
