What to Do in Troubleshooting Water Leaks at Your Home
Call 281-302-6710 for more information. In this video, Sugar Land Master Plumber Bryan Graham talks about the initial steps you’d want to think about taking for troubleshooting water leaks. You may notice that your water bill is high, but you haven’t noticed any leaks, so what can you do?
Here’s a summary of Bryan’s video on Troubleshooting Water Leaks.
All right, so we get a lot of calls about troubleshooting water leaks, people call in and ask why is the water bill high at their house or their water bill’s doubled or whatever.
So, the first thing I usually tell them to do is, you can check out there at the meter, see if your meter is spinning. If you turn off all the water in your house, you’re not running any faucets, you’re not flushing any toilets or anything like that, and you look at the meter and the meter’s spinning, that means you’ve got water running somewhere.
That could mean that you have a leak or it could mean that maybe you have a leaky toilet, dripping faucet. Or it could be something out in the yard.
If you see water running out in the yard, the first thing I normally tell people to do is, if you have a sprinkler system, cut it off at the sprinkler valve. See if it dries up, see if the meter stops. If it does, then we know you have an issue on the sprinkler system. And if it doesn’t, that means you probably have something in the water line in the yard or again, something inside the house.
