An often overlooked weak point is the condensate pan under the air handlers. They can get plugged and trip the float switch so air handler won't come on or overflow into the living space.

Thanks for all the info. The only thing I don't know is if I can shut off the water. Have to find out where the drip irrigation system is hooked up. Can't shut that off.

Another tip. If you have an ice maker, make sure you have a shut off when it's installed. We expect those little plastic tubes to last forever and . . . trust me. . . they DON'T! And they can leak a LOT of water in a short time.

I would shut off the water now and open a faucet in the sink to drain the pressure out of the pipe. Then turn off the faucet and go turn on the drip irrigation. It the drip is still going strong after a few minutes it's probably not controlled by that valve.

But I'll bet that your drip is in fact downstream (after) the valve and therefore will be a problem that you need to come up with a plan for.

As a snowbirder, we leave our place in Arizona (Mesa) for 6 months.
This is a big topic. Half of us turn everything off. They seem to manage.
I'm in the other half: a/c to 90. Leave reefer on, with all bath/kitchen stuff possible in it.
Humidity is a non-issue there. But yes, turn off the water main valve.
In all the places I've had, the irrigation is upstream of the house valve. On purpose.
