If a building has been vacant for several weeks or longer, follow these tips to help maintain internal plumbing before reopening to ensure a fresh water supply.
Over time, chlorine dissipates in water. If plumbing isn’t used for several days, the chlorine residual will eventually fall to zero. Water Utilities recommends flushing water through unused fixtures for several minutes. This will turn over the unused water and flow fresh water from the water main through your building's plumbing.
