How to Check for a Leak

 

Leaks are a nuisance.  If you have had an unusually high bill with a corresponding increase of water consumption or have noticed water standing in your yard, you could have a problem.

Did you know that a toilet leak can add up to over 200 gallons in a day or that a leaking faucet dripping one drip per second can waste 8 gallons of water per day?  Please click here for instructions on how to detect leaks inside your home.

Leaks outside your home can be hard to detect because they are often underground or under the foundation of your house.  Because customers are responsible for their service lines from the meter to the house, you should contact a repair person as soon as possible.  The sooner you fix the leak, the sooner the meter stops registering the extra flow of water, which translates into a lower bill.
