How smart are “smart cars”

Don’t think for a second by owning a smart car your in the clear. There are always pro’s and con’s to everything you purchase in life. Just make sure when buying a smart car the pro’s outweigh the con’s. Let’s dive in a take a look at some of the benefits to the smart car. Not only does a smart car get 40 mpg, but is also environmentally friendly as well. Did you know what 95% of the vehicle is recyclable materials from construction. Smart cars are so tiny they can basically park anywhere. The smart car is only nine feet long. That’s two feet shorter then the Mini Cooper. The car is so small they even found room to fit four airbags inside.

Now let’s go over some of the con’s. One of the biggest issue to owning a smart car is the limited space. If this car is your only dependent car that could be a problem at times. When moving items from one location to another your may have to rent a truck or count on a friend. The smart car is so small that it makes it hard for other vehicles to see you on the road. Cause it’s smaller it may be able to maneuver out of an accident that an SUV or truck couldn’t avoid. Cruise control unfortunately doesn’t come equipped in smart cars, yet. How smart is a smart car when family can’t drive together? If you plan on going on a road trip or even out to dinner a smart car won’t get you all their together.
Personally, I hope one day they invent the “Smart truck”, in the near future of course.

Frost-free sillcock

Frost-free sillcocks are designed that the shut-off valve is located about 8 to 12 inches inside the sillcock pipe. This puts the water line inside the house. The further the sillcock reaches inside the heated walls, the lower the chance of a bursting pipe. When going to replace a leaky or broken sillcock most people install a frost-free. The frost free sillcock makes it so the water gets turned off inside the home and then can be drained on the outside. Purchasing a frost free faucet can be anywhere from $30-$65 and up. If your going through the trouble of having an exterior faucet leak on a hose bib (sillcock) replaced make sure you spend the extra money and install a frost-free style if you have room for the thicker pipe.
