Did you know home and business owners are responsible for checking their pipes and plumbing for leaks? I’m sure your property’s insurance company does. If a water leak is allowed to continue it is considered a lack of maintenance, even if it is behind a wall where the homeowner can’t see it. Which means the cost of the damages are the homeowner's responsibility
Over 7 million gallons of clean drinking water is wasted through leaking pipes every day. When water is wasted, so is energy!
Just because you can’t see most of your pipes, doesn’t mean they aren’t leaking. Check your water meter, if all the water in the home is turned off, the meter should not be registering.
