Experiencing High Water Consumption?
The following are a few reasons that your bill could be higher than previous bills:
- Check the current reading on the water meter which looks similar to the odometer in your car. The reading you see on the meter shows how much more water was used when you compare it to the current reading on the bill. Water usage is measured in gallons.
- On the face of the meter is a dial that looks similar to a watch face with a hand that spins. Or it could be a triangle shape that spins. This is a leak indicator. If all the water is turned off in your home and the hand or triangle is moving, you have a leak. Some homes have new digital meters with no dials. If you have a new digital meter, when you lift the lid up, if the last number is moving, then water is being used. That is your leak indicator. Or,
- Read the meter at night before bed, then again first thing in the morning. Is there a difference?
