    Re: Running water into an attached garage?

    Copper pipes can survive at 32 or a little under with no problem. (For a short time).

    It is that extended hard freeze that will split them.

    Any place that hard freezes should always have a way to drain/shut off, or otherwise winterize the garage installation.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    That's great. What is the lowest temps you have seen in the garage?

    If you use a hose through and take it inside when you a have risk of freezing temperature. You will be fine. But also consider that most houses has self ventilation. And if doing a whole outside to a non heated can mess with the ventilation you have. Also with an antifreeze outlet it's self draining so there is no water standing in the spigot/outlet. So even with some extra bucks it could be worth it in the longrun. I have this antifreeze outlet from the basements bathroom to outside of the house. No need to be doing anything when winter comes and just leaves it as is. And we get very low temperature here but since it's self draining even when the water is on it's no chance to freeze as it's no water in the outlet it self.

    Temps do not get below freezing in the garage. We keep cases of water on shelves out there and they've never frozen. It's rare that we get temps cold enough to cause us an issue with pipes freezing/bursting, but it has happened. Even when those temps occur, it's even more rare that they last more than a day or maybe two. I'll set it up and prep for the worst case scenario anyway.
