How Do I Know If There Is A Water Leal In My Hous?

Seeing water where it shouldn’t be is the easiest way to determine whether you have a leak in your plumbing. This could be a wet area in your yard, water leaking into the street during dry spells, or swollen wood on cupboards, walls, and ceilings. When a person receives a letter from the Council informing them that their water usage has increased by more than 50% since their last billing month, that person may also have a water leak.

Check your water metre for indications of movement if you think you may have a leak but are unable to find any. Turn off all faucets, washing machines, dishwashers, and other water-using appliances to do this. After an hour of not using any water on the property, take a picture of the reading on your water metre. Take another picture of the reading on your water metre. It is possible that you have a water leak if the numbers have changed throughout the last hour.
