Helpful Tips for Possible Leaks
Check for a defect in your private water system. This could be a dripping faucet, running toilet, leak in a water line, etc. To perform this check:
Record the reading from your water meter.
Do not use any water for a period of eight (8) hours or more. (It may be less inconvenient if you test overnight).
Record the reading on your meter at the end of the test period. Compare the two readings. If the readings are different and you did not use any water, a defect, or leak, is indicated.
Check if a toilet is leaking:
Drop enough drops of food coloring into the tank, enough to make the water in the tank a really dark color of your choice.
Let sit for fifteen (15) minutes without flushing.
If there is a lighter color in the toilet bowl, this is a good indication the toilet is leaking.
If all else fails please call a plumber. Leaks can be costly.
Water Saving Tips
1. Water your lawn between 4-6 a.m. during the warmer months. 2. Check for irrigation system over-spray. You may need to adjust the sprinkler heads. 3. Mulch trees and plant beds with 2-3" mulch. Plants will need less water. 4. Run full (not partial) laundry & dishwasher loads.
