I have a friend who has an Amazon Prime account so asking him to order the 9 ft one.

My grandmother used to leave her kitchen sink dripping on the coldest nights to keep her pipes from freezing.

That works until it doesn't, if you know what I mean.  If you do that pick a faucet that's farthest from the incoming water supply. A small hose that fits over the faucet will stop the "drip drip drip" sound. You can also tie a dish cloth around the faucet.
