Symmons shower valve
 
I recently installed a new Symmons outside shower valve. All is ok except I can't remove the 'set' nut from underneathe the valve.
I've shut it all down for the winter (Cape Cod).
Is this going to freeze the small amount of water in the line?

Thanks,

Dennis

Symmons valve
 
Excuse my lack of precision. I should have said will the residual water expand enough to burst he pipe or valve?

It's highly possible. Perhaps you can blow it out with air?
