How do I know if I have a leak?
The easiest way to determine if you have a leak is to turn off all taps and make sure there is no water being used in any other way (including humidifiers, air conditioners and ice machines). Go to the water meter and if the red triangle located at the top of the meter is continuing to spin there is a leak somewhere in your plumbing. If it is spinning, check your toilets! A toilet is the most common place to find an undetected leak.
