If your water meter has been upgraded to the Automated Meter Reading (AMR) unit you can sign up to get emails when your water use increases significantly over several days. This will allow you to quickly check potential leaks and fix them before they become a billing problem.
The email does not always mean there is a leak and there could be other reasons for the increase in water use.
If you discover a leak, you should contact a licensed plumber for repairs.
Possible Leak Locations
- Check toilets by looking for water movement in the bowl and the tank.
- If you have refrigerators, air conditioning units or lawn sprinklers, check that they are turned off when not in use.
- Check your water meter to see if the triangle-shaped leak indicator on the face of the meter is moving when no one is actually using water.
