Leaks in your water system mean you're paying for water you don't use. Your water meter measures it all, even water that slips away.
As a responsible property owner, it’s a good idea to monitor your normal water use so you can recognize unusually high water use that might suggest leaks.
How to monitor your water consumption:
- Check your water usage on your utility statement as soon as you receive a quarterly bill. To receive your bill electronically instead of by mail, sign up using MyDistrict.
- Track usage monthly and watch your water consumptions trends online using MyDistrict.
Unusually high water use could be the result of a leak. However, sometimes these increases can also be explained by a specific activity, such as:
- Irrigation system was turned on
- Swimming pool was filled
- Power washer was used
- Hose was left on
Other times it is the result of a slow leak, a sudden indoor leak or a sudden outdoor leak.
