Leaking pipes are a huge pain that comes with a huge bill. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to tell where the excess water is coming from, and the longer it takes to find the source, the more your water meter runs. If you’re worried that your water bill might be a bit high, here are some things to look for to see if you have a leak.
Because of the regular use, it’s not uncommon for one of the levers or connections in your toilet to detach and lead to a slow but steady leak. If you hear a constant sound coming from the bathroom, remove the back of the toilet and look to see if there’s any water moving.
There are a number of things in your yard and garden that can either break or be accidentally left on:
- Irrigation systems
If you notice pooling water or steady drips near any of these sources, see if you can fix the issue or turn them off.
Leaving a leak untreated for an extended time can cost you a lot of money while wasting a lot of water. To learn more about how you can save water and avoid these issues, contact Keefe Plumbing Company, Inc. at 423-622-3178.
