Planning For Your Plumbing Before Vacation

Whether you are trying to escape the cold temperatures of living in Northwest Indiana or going away for a holiday, it is important to know what to do with you’re plumbing when you know it will be inactive for a while.

For starters, if you know you are going to be away for a long time, whether you are leaving for a week or a season. Amidst, your vacation planning, you might want to add a plumbing inspection to your list of things to do. You’ll want to ensure that you have no leaking pipes or damage because coming home to a plumbing disaster would be a disaster!

Another idea would be to go as far as turning off your main water valve before your vacation. This turns off your water all together in the instance a pipe does burst. In your home while you are away, there will be significantly less damage. Along with that it is really not necessary to leave your water heater on while you are away. This uses a lot of electricity and puts wear and tear on your heater when you don’t need it.
