How To Check For Leaks

Every drop counts! Here's a simple process you can use to detect leaks that may exist anywhere in your home or business.

  1. Turn off all water inside and outside, making sure that no one uses water during the test period.
  2. Locate the leak indicator on the meter, it usually appears as a red plastic indicator on your meter itself. See below for examples.
  3. If the leak indicator is moving at all, there is a leak somewhere. *Please Note: * The customer is responsible for maintaining the interior plumbing system, including all pipes and plumbing fixtures.
