Check your water meter: With all the water using appliances turned off and nobody using the water, check the water meter. If it is registering it indicates you may have a water leak. Leave the water turned off for at least 30 minutes, check the meter again. If the level has changed, it is time to contact the Leak Doctor.
Check your water usage: Has your water bill recently gone up? The average person uses about 80 gallons of water a day. If your monthly bill is above the average water usage, it may indicate a leak.
