Six Tips on How to Prevent Plumbing Problems at Home While Traveling

Here are the primary precautions you should take with your plumbing before leaving home for several days.

1 – Clean out your garbage disposal and drains. When you are home, you likely rinse your drains regularly with water. However, in your absence, leftover moisture and debris can cause the development of unpleasant odors.

2 – Empty your dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer. It is also a good idea to leave these devices open so that they can air out.

3 – Turn water off at the meter or well tank to prevent damage from leaks.

4 – Drain your water heater if you do not have a tankless system. Rather, schedule an appointment with an experienced plumber from Aaron Swift to come out and do this for you.

5 – Ask a neighbor, friend, or family member to check your home while you are gone. Then, if a plumbing issue comes up, this individual can call Aaron Swift to fix the problem before it gets worse.

6 – Last and certainly not least, make sure to call Aaron Swift well in advance of your departure.
