My parents got here about the same time as the guy from the water company did. This is a good thing because I had screwed up and had all the other utilities switched into our name for the closing on Tuesday, but I couldn’t find the phone number/website for the water company and by the time I did, the earliest they could come out to turn it on was Today.
The bad part was that he told my parents the meter was running even when everything was shut off which indicated to him that we had a leak somewhere. Its really not good to give parents something extra to worry about. In the process my dad found an issue with the icemaker behind the fridge. He also cleaned behind the fridge.
