Leak Detection

Leak Detection

Do you have a higher than expected water bill and suspect a possible plumbing leak which may be contributing to it? You can test for a potential plumbing leak by shutting off all water on the premises and watching the flow indicator on the meter.

You could save about 500 gallons every year just by fixing a leaking faucet - check if you're unknowingly wasting water and $$.  One of the easiest ways to do this is to find your water meter and take a reading during a period when no water is being used. After two hours, if the meter increases, you probably have a leak.
