Check for Leaks

Leaks are wasters of both water and money.  You may have a leak inside or outside your home without even knowing it.  Some properties have long service lines that exist off the property where leaks can go undetected.  Even a small leak can waste hundreds of gallons of water each day. 

Check toilets, pipes, hoses, faucets and connections both indoors and outdoors at least once a year. 

The following are tips to help you determine if you have a leak.

water meterChecking for Leaks:

  1. Turn off all water inside and outside of home.
  2. The face of the meter has several dials and pointers; note their positions.
  3. Wait 10 minutes or more.
  4. Look at the positions of the dials and pointers. If any of them have moved and you can’t account for the difference by a swamp cooler, toilet flush, ice-cube maker or other use – you probably have a leak.
