Do you have a water leak?
A high water bill is generally caused by a leak or change in water consumption. Causes for high water bills include:
- A toilet that continues to run after being flushed.
- A dripping faucet.
- Water-cooled air conditioners.
- Water softener issue (cycles continuously).
- Leaking water heater.
- A broken water pipe.
Have you had changes in your water use?
Have you had house guests, watered your lawn more, or done anything else that involved more water usage? This may account for an increase in your water bill.
The most common cause for high water bill is water running from a toilet. Leaks, unseen or unfixed, can waste hundtreds and even thousands of gallons of water. Please routinely check your plumbing, and home for leaky faucets, toilets, and outside taps.
Leaks that occur under your house or in the service line between your water meter and your home are harder to find. Be sure to check outdoor spigots and crawl spaces, and look for wet spots in your yard, which can indicate a leak.
