Leak Detection

Keep Your Home Leak Free

Leaks are often undetectable on the surface and can result in high water use and costly water bills. Following the steps below, you can easily confirm if there is a leak on your property and isolate the source. Checking regularly for leaks can save both water and money!

  1. Step One: Do You Have a Leak?
  2. Step Two: Is the Leak Inside or Outside?
  3. Step Three: What Is the Source?
  • Make sure no water is being used inside or outside of your home.
  • Locate your water meter. It is most likely in a green box in your front yard.
  • Write down the meter reading.
  • Wait 30 minutes and do not use any water.
  • Check the meter reading. If the number has changed, you have a leak.
  • Your meter may also have a small triangle or dial for detecting leaks. If this is moving, you have a leak.
