Plumbing Category: Leaks

Improvement Project:

Detect a leak overall in a quick, efficient way.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Water meter

  • Pen

  • Paper

Guide:

If you ever wonder as to whether your house is suffering from a hidden leak, a quick, efficient way of making a calculated conclusion as to whether your house plumbing is actually leaking is to use your water utility meter. 

As part of this water-leak-detection method, what you'll need to do is the following:

  1. First, have all members of your family, including yourself, abstain from the use of any water at your house, inside or outside.  This means not showering, using the sink, using your cooler, etc.  Do not do anything that requires the consumption or use of public water that is supplied to your house.

  2. Then, read your current water rate/water reading on your house water meter, and note it with a pen on a sheet of paper.

  1. After waiting for about an hour to two hours, read your water rate/water reading on your house water meter again and then note this reading with a pen on a sheet of paper, and compare this reading with that of the initially noted water reading.  If your latest water reading noticeably changes, you may, in fact, have a water leak somewhere in your house plumbing system.

So, the next time you suspect your house plumbing is leaking, or you are otherwise concerned, you may want to rely on your water meter to help assess the water output situation.
