Going On A Trip???
Whether a trip is for fun, family, business-related, etc. amidst all the hustle and bustle that builds up as the date of the trip gets closer, we often forget something. Whether that forgotten “something” is a toothbrush, an electronic, or a more important item, it can bother you the whole time you’re gone!
Making a list and checking it twice really does come in handy on this occasion! While your making that list (and checking it twice- at least!) don’t forget to take care of your house! Depending on how long you will be away, your house should have a few things turns off as well! It’s always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to plumbing!
Here are 3 plumbing related things to check in your home before you lock up and leave!
1. Shut the Water Off!
The longer your trip is, the more important this item on the list becomes! This is to prevent a plumbing emergency while your away. The last thing you need on a trip is to get an unexpected call about a plumbing problem or come home to find that plumbing is a mess! So playing it safe and turning off the water supply to your house will save you a lot of stress!
2. Shut the power off to your water heater to save electric!
Will you be away from home for more than a few days?? It would be a good idea to turn off your water heater then so you can save money & prevent a plumbing emergency as well!
3. Will you be gone for longer than a month??
If so, then you might want to consider having someone come to your house at least one time a month to run the water throughout the house. This will avoid any build ups, breakdowns or other issues that can arise when things are stagnant for too long.
