Making your home ready before a vacation can save you potential headaches and money. What you prepare might be influenced by how long you will be away and to what extent you want your utilities to be to secure. Here is a checklist of items to consider before you are scheduled to leave your home for long vacations:
If a pipe or component of a utility source leaks or bursts while you’re absent and the primary valve is open, water will keep on running or spewing. Therefore, before leaving for vacation, it is advised that you turn the main valve off to prevent water from running. Other reasons people prefer to shut the main water valve during their absence is because it stops any kind of water theft, saves cost and conserves water.
