High Water Consumption Tips

Print RSS

If you experience a high utility bill, you may want to consider the following:

  • Frequent watering of your lawn or flowers
  • Frequent washing of cars at home
  • Leaky faucets
  • An increase in the number of people in your house
  • Plumbing problems
  • A toilet that continues to run after flushing
  • Silent toilet leaks (put food color in the tank, do not flush; if color seeps into the bowl, you have a "silent leak")
  • Broken water lines (check your yard for wet spots)
  • Spinning water meter indicator (lift top of water meter; if indicator is spinning and you are not currently using water, you may have a leak)
