Things To Consider When Leaving Home . . .

When leaving your home for vacation you may want to consider the following: Turn off the power to your pump and either close the main water valve or drain the pressure tank (unless of course your neighbor needs to water your horses). Turn off your hot water heater or set it to pilot if it’s gas (it’s easier than “off” and re-lighting it). Set your house heat to the lowest setting,  just enough to keep things from freezing or your plants from dying. Make sure non-essential electrical items are turned off.  You may also want to stash your valuables.  Above all, don’t forget the trash!!!  I just love to come back to stinky trash or rotten goods in the refrigerator. If you have to leave your water on,  make sure that you don’t have a dripping faucet or leaky toilet, as these often lead to frozen sewer lines. You may also want to check your clothes washer (things get hectic and forgotten when leaving on vacation).                        –– David Nequette
