Keeping your home safe when you’re away
1. Turn the water off
Leaks aren’t usually a big deal – if you’re at home. Unfortunately, even a small leak left for a week or two can cause a major flood that damages your property.
If you’re away for a while, turn off your water at your inside stop valve (there’s plenty of help on YouTube if that phrase is a mystery to you). If you’re going for long, just make sure all the taps are turned off tightly.
