My water bill is higher than usual, does that mean I have a water leak?

You may have a water leak. You may want to inspect your home. Check under the cabinets for any leaks or moisture, listen for any water running when all the water is turned off, check all hose connections, water meter, and outside spigot.

Also test the water meter. First, make sure all valves are turned off and there are no leaking faucets or toilets. Then, you want to locate your meter box, which is typically located in front of your property near the street. Carefully remove the lid and raise the cap on the meter dial. The display dial is similar to a clock; locate the red triangle at the lower left side of the dial. The triangle should not turn unless you are using water. If the triangle is turning, you may have a leak.
