Detecting Leaks

Steps for Leak Detection

  1. Turn off all the water in your house.
  2. Check the position of the meter dials.
  3. Make a note of where the small dials are.
  4. Re-check your meter.
  5. If the dials have not moved, congratulations - no leaks!
  6. If anything on the meter has changed, you may have a leak.

If you believe you have a leak, checking the following notoriously leaky areas first to identify the problem area:
  • Faucets
