5 Plumbing Checks Before Vacation

Now that we’re getting into spring and summer, it is the time for vacations, but not many people know there are plumbing checks you should be doing before any vacations to avoid unwanted accidents. We’ve compiled a checklist of all your plumbing priorities before leaving for vacation to make it easier for you!

#1 Plumbing Check – Inspect plumbing for leaks

There’s nothing worse than having an unknown leak flood your home while away, and you can’t do anything about it. Don’t let leaks ruin your vacation! Instead, do a quick inspection of your home and check for any signs of leaks. If you suspect there may be a leak, consider calling High Speed Plumbing. We offer same-day appointments, so we can get you on your vacation with peace of mind knowing your plumbing will be in good hands!

#2 Plumbing Check – Clear and clean any drains

No one wants to walk into their home after a long vacation just to be hit with the smell coming from unclean drains.Try these DIY garbage disposal cleaning pods  to make sure everything is fresh and clean!

#3 Plumbing Check – Clean the gutters

 If you live in a place that gets a lot of rain, you’ll want to make sure your rain gutters can handle it while you’re on vacation. Ensure all debris and leaves are cleared from your gutters so they can drain properly to avoid any roof leaks.

#4 Plumbing Check – Turn off your water

Your water doesn’t need to be shut off every time you go on vacation, especially if it’s only for a week or two, but if you’re going to be away for over a month, shutting off your water at the main valve is an easy way to know that you won’t come home to any leaks.

#5 Plumbing Check – Adjust your water heater

Setting your water heater to the lowest setting while on vacation can help lower your electricity bill. Similar to shutting off your water at the main valve, you can also opt to turn off your water heater entirely to avoid potential flooding.

Have a friend check in on your home

If you have a friend or neighbor who will be in the area while on vacation, consider asking them to check on your home once a week to ensure there are no leaks or unexpected problems. Remember to leave them the number of a reliable plumber like High Speed Plumbing if there are any issues!

Enjoy your vacation with peace of mind!

You can sit back and relax after you’ve done all these things, knowing that your plumbing will be safe and sound while you’re gone!
