Household Water Conservation

The best method for determining whether you have a water leak in your home is to follow this four step procedure;

  1. Turn off all water around the house including outside spigots.
  2. Look at the leak indicator (triangle) on your meter register.
  3. If the leak indicator is moving, water is running somewhere in your system.
  4. Check all toilets and inside and outside faucets for leaks.

If you cannot account for the running water by sinks, toilet, faucets, humidifier, automatic ice maker or water softener, you have a leak, and further investigation is recommended. 90% of all leaks in residential plumbing systems are found in the toilet tank.
