Now, a Pressure Vacuum Breaker (PVB) is a backflow prevention device that helps keep contaminants from getting into the public water system. If you do not want to drain the PVB so you can continue watering using your irrigation system, you can add heat tape and insulation to help minimize the chance of freezing.
Midnight has struck and the pumpkins are back! Why stick to the same old routine of carving pumpkins every year. Dealing with the mess and the smell is one thing but having it slowly rot on your front porch is another. Try something new this year! Try spray painting or simply arranging some of those Autumn Wing Gourds (below) to make a visually stunning display. Maybe even top your designs off with a painting, message, quote, or slogan (right).
