Things you should do if you are going on vacation, One thing comes to mine is shutting off the main water line in your home. This way if for some reason the heat turns off or you get a water leak in your home , if the water is turned off it will not cause any damage to your home while you are away on vacation. This is just a reminder and something easy to do. In the picture below if the handle is parallel the water is on and if the handle is perpendicular the water is off. If you have an older home the shut off valve will be like an outside house faucet , just turn the handle clock wise until the water is off in the home, Then have fun while you are away on a holiday
