Weather fluctuations. Water consumption changes from one season to the next. For an accurate comparison, examine bills from corresponding periods (August ’16 vs. August ’15).
Have living arrangements changed? Water consumption will increase if there are more people living in the residence. Has there been an apartment added on to the residence?
Check for leaks. Dripping faucets inside and outside are obvious sources, but look for other less visible signs as well. Start in the bathroom. Listen for hissing noises around the toilet, which indicate a shut-off valve is leaking. These things add up. For example, a hole that’s 1/16″ wide can leak as much as 74,000 gallons of water in 90 days. That translates to $124.20 (at current billing rate) every three months.
How do I detect a leak?Read More
Check your inside sinks and faucets for drips. Check your toilet. Do you have to jiggle the handle to stop it from running? Most toilet leaks occur at the overflow pipe or at the plunger ball inside the tank. To locate a toilet leak, take the tank lid off and flush. The water level should come up to about a half-inch or so below the overflow pipe. Adjust the float level control screw, if necessary, so the valve shuts off the water at that level. If the valve itself is leaking, you may need a plumber to fix it.
To detect a silent leak in your toilet, you can test it by putting 10 drops of food coloring in the tank. Don’t flush for several hours. If the colored water shows up in the bowl, the tank is leaking. If you do suspect a leak we recommend calling a plumber for assistance.

Reminder: You may confirm the presence of a leak by checking the flow indicator (black triangle) on the meter. If it’s moving, and no water is on in your home, you have a leak.
