Turning off the water to your house when going on vacation can save your thousands of dollars in the event you have a water pipe bust inside your home while you are gone.
I recommend having two water shut offs to your house. One for your house and the second one for your water sprinkler system if you have one. By having two water shut offs it will allow you to turn off the water to your house but still run your sprinklers while you are on vacation. We all know that Texas heat in the summer is no joke.
Nobody expects their home to flood. But disasters can and do happen and when you’re away you can’t do anything about minimizing the damage. So, do yourself a favor and remember to shut off the main water supply to your home any time you’re planning to be away for more than a day.
