Vacation Tip

Pack the Sunscreen and Turn Off the Water

Summer fun often means heading off to the beach for a week's vacation, but you don't want to find an ocean of water in your basement when you return! Be sure to turn off the main water valve to your house before you leave. This simple step can save you a ton of frustration by preventing a burst hose or water line from flooding your house. It is also a good time to make sure everyone in your family knows where that main valve is located. It could come in handy in the future. Now, enjoy your vacation and don't forget the sunscreen!

If you do have a plumbing problem upon your return be sure to call a licensed PHCC member.  You can find one here.
