Like many things during the long, Minnesotain winters, seasonal cabins are closed up and stationary. So when spring comes, the only running water to be found might be the melting snow. Returning to your closed cabin, you may find that wells need to be primed, electricity activated, water softeners programed. If you store antifreeze in your toilets over the winter, that will need to be flushed away and cleaned. Water heaters, depending on if you have gas or electric, can also be difficult to handle when ignited after hibernation.
If the cabin was properly drained, the lines will be filled with air, and the process of pressurizing them can be time-consuming and loud. However, if something was done improperly before winter and frozen water damaged the pipes, things can become very wet very fast.
