Leak Detection

If you suspect you have a leak, take the following steps to determine if you have a leak. 

1. Confirm that no water is being used. 
2. Remove the meter lid (for meters located in a meter pit).
3. Take a reading from the meter, wait 15 minutes and read the meter again.
4. If the reading has changed you probably have a leak.
5. If there is an indication of a leak, you can isolate its location by turning off the water at the valve where you water service enters the house.
6. After turning off the valve, once again read the meter and wait approximately one hour. If the reading has changed, the leak is in the service line between the meter and the turn off valve in the house. If the reading has not changed, the leak is in the house. Check your toilets, humidifiers and faucets.
7. Reinstall the meter lid. 

Most meters have a small triangle in the center of the meter. If this triangle is moving, there may be a leak.

If you determine that you have a leak, please have it repaired as soon as possible to prevent unnecessary water charges. Please advise our office after repairs have been made.
