High Water Bill Analysis
Steve Huff Plumbing can fix your water billing issues!
Most water meters have a small red triangle on them that will turn when the slightest amount of water moves thru the meter. If the triangle moves with no water running the house, this indicates leaking pipes somewhere.
To determine if the leak is inside or outside your home, locate the emergency shut off (if accessible) where the water line first enters the house. Shut off the valve and observe the meter again. If the triangle continues to turn then the leak is between the meter and the house. If the triangle does not continue to turn then the leak is inside. Inside- One or two dripping faucets or a toilet that runs can add a lot to your water bill each month. Outside- A hole 1/32 of an inch in a pipe at 60 lbs of pressure will leak 6000 gallons a month.
