Do you suspect that you have a leak on your water system? If so, the first thing to do is to take a peek at your water meter!!
The water meter is located somewhere in the front near your property line. It will be housed in a rectangular box with a metal lid. Some are above ground, most are in the ground and the lid is at the same level as the dirt around it. Either way, the lid of the meter box will be imprinted by the Board of Water as the meter belongs to them. Do not tamper with the meter at all as it too is property of the Board of Water. You may, however, lift the lid to see if the small, red triangle is moving. If so, and no one is using any water in your home or on the property, you may have a leak. Note that if you have an icemaker line on your refrigerator, and it is filling, the meter will move. You must be sure that no fixtures or appliances that require water, are in use. Some of the most common leaks are caused by the following:
Leaking sprinkler valve
The red triangle that moves without a reason will increase your water bill which means more money out of your pocket.
Drip, Drip, Drip......don't let little drops turn into a big water bill. Point Plumbing can keep your system running optimally which will both save water and keep you cost efficient.
