Weekend home...in the winter
I have a new weekend home in the Shenandoah Valley that has somewhat frequent power outages and can have lots of snow. I just want to make sure I'm taking the right steps to turn off my water while I'm gone during the week to prevent a serious water mishap. When I left tonight I flipped the circiut breakers to the well pump and water heater. I then drained my lines using my lowest spigot which happens to be outdoors. In fact, it's my only spigot on my basement level and I left it open. When I return Friday night, I plan to clost the spigot, flip the circuit breakers back on, and then turn on whatever spigot is handy.
Is this the right process to follow?
