Leak Repair FAQs
If your water bill has suddenly become increasingly high, you can be sure you have a leak somewhere. Once you have recognized that there is a problem, you will need to determine the location of the leak. The first step to finding the leak is to check if any of the toilets are constantly running. If you notice condensation on the bowl or tank, you most likely have a leak in your toilet.
Alternatively, check your front yard for any wet spots on your lawn. Turn off all appliances in your house that uses water. Once all the appliances are off, check your water meter and make a note of the reading. In about half an hour, check the meter again. If it has moved, then you know there is definitely a leak.
