Are you one of the millions of Americans jetting off to an exotic location this summer? If so, we are very jealous! Before you get in the car to go to the airport, remember to prep your pipes. After all, you don’t want to come home to a plumbing disaster! Below are some tips on how to prepare your plumbing system before a vacation.
- Check faucets, sinks, toilets, etc. for leaks. If you spot any, be sure to have them fixed by a professional plumber.
- If you discover that your faucet or shower head need to be replaced, consider installing an energy efficient option.
- Shut off the water mains. It is also important to make sure that faucets are turned off and the garden hose is detached.
