Yes, it will begin jealous. when that happens, it will start throwing our feces of it is Sanitär.Idk, the only thing I can imagine that water stagnates inside the tubes and mold, and errors will start to grow there. I think if you keep it once a week, you will be fine.

Yes, you should. The water in the pipes will stagnate and will make your house smell. You need to keep water running through them periodically that to happen.

Actually, yes, you should occasionally some water running in the sink and shower or bath, but not for the reasons the other answerer stated. Clean water from the pipes would have to stagnate for a very long time, and put stinking. But what will happen is that long before it could be stagnant, it will evaporate down both encounters I mentioned out of the traps and then the odors from your septic or sewer lines could be pushed through and into the rooms. The idea is to keep running just to get enough water, the traps so full that they can do their work .. The toilet probably has enough water to last needed by an application to the next, but not tubs and sinks.
