Many businesses and vacation homes have not been used in some time. If a property has been vacant, it is best to go in to periodically flush out the water pipes. Water can stagnate in plumbing and appliances and may affect water quality after it leaves the city’s distribution and enters private service connections. Stagnant water can increase the risk of Legionella, which causes Legionnaires’ disease amongst other issues. Sometimes, people forget that it is just as important to do this in warmer weather as it is in colder weather when you risk frozen pipes.
