Leaks

Write down the complete reading on your meter. Without using any water take another reading in 1 to 2 hours. If it is different than your earlier reading you have a leak.

The best way to begin finding your leak is to check the leak indicator dial (usually a triangle dial). It is located to the right of your reading. Watch that dial for a minute or two to see if there is any movement. If it moves, then a leak is suspected. If you have trouble finding this leak indicator dial turn the water on and look at the meter for the dial that is spinning.

It is a process of elimination to find a leak and most leaks are toilet related. If the leak indicator is moving without any water being on, turn the toilet off at its wall valve, go back and check for movement on the leak indicator. If this stops the movement, you have found the leak. If not, go through the household turning off each water source (washing machine, sinks, hot water tank), individually until the movement stops. (Some toilet leaks are completely silent.)

If you have been unable to locate where your leak is, it could be on the outside of your home such as a dripping spigot or somewhere in the yard or irrigation system. There should be a valve on the outside of the house to shut the water off completely. If this valve is turned off and there is still movement on your leak indicator then the leak is in the yard or irrigation system.

A small leak uses a surprising amount of water and only gets larger. After you have located your leak and had it repaired you may be eligible for a leak adjustment. (Save your repair receipts.) Call your service representative to review your account.
