If you go on vacation during the cold winter months, turn the water off to your house. Find the main shut off valve that will be either in your basement or the first floor of your home if you don't have a basement. After you shut it off, open the faucet at the lowest point in your house and let all of the water run out until it stops so that you can clear the pipes. This quick and easy step could save you from coming home to a house full of water.
