Water in the Taps
Posted date : Sep 26, 2019.
I will be gone for six months. What can you do if the toilet is not flushed; when it sits there for a while, the water turns yellow and it stinks? Also in the taps, when you run the water. Can you help, when there is no one to run the water. Thank you.
Ed.: We have found that having someone check the house every two weeks is the best bet. That is also very, very good, should you ever have a home insurance claim. When no one is available for a house visit, it may make sense to hire one of the “look after your house/cottage” services. They can be quite reasonable. We have had exactly the same problems in the U.S. and we simply turn off all of the water before we come home. We also cover the toilet seats with Saran Wrap or something similar, and make sure that all of the shower and sink drains are closed or blocked.
