Unusually High Water Bill?

A leaking toilet is one of the possible culprits when there is a leak in residential plumbing and usually go undetected. Leaks in the toilet tank are usually caused by worn parts or misalignment of some part of the flushing mechanism. It is crucial to address these leaks promptly in order to avoid a high water bill every month.

To determine if you have a leak, follow these steps:

  1. Start by turning off all appliances in your home that use water, including dishwasher, ice maker, and water heater. Because it can be a challenge to find all of the appliances, make sure you turn off all faucets as you move around the house.
  2. Locate your water meter. Look for a dial marked as “1 cu ft.” See if it moves over a period of 20-30 minutes. If there is any movement, it indicates a possible water leak from a faucet or appliance.
  3. Remember to turn your faucets, appliances, and water heater back on once you have completed the diagnosis.
