Now that the holiday season is well and truly upon us there are so many things you need to remember before you set off on your jollies, but is your turning off your water one of them? If not, then make sure you add this on your ‘to do list’ before you leave because it could just save you from a disaster whilst your away!
Here’s why …
What would happen if a pipe burst whilst you were away? Would your home be left to drown in a week or two weeks’ worth of water? Could you imagine the devastation and destruction this much water could have on your home whilst your away? Switching your water off at the mains before you go will ensure that no such disasters will occur whilst you’re not at home.
However, remember that if your switching your water off at the mains you’ll also need to turn off some of your appliances that use water, such as your boiler or your ice maker in your plumbed in fridge / freezer, as these appliances may break without a constant water supply.
