Detecting Leaks

Even the smallest leak in your water system can cause the loss of thousands of gallons of water each month. That loss means not only is water being wasted, but also that you will probably receive an unnecessarily higher water bill. 

The faster you can identify the source of a leak, the faster it can be fixed. If you suspect you might have a leak, our helpful and easy-to-follow leak detection kit can help you find it. We are all responsible for helping to save and conserve water, and we want to help you save water and money.

Quick Test: Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter changes at all, you probably have a leak.

Toilet Leaks

Identify toilet leaks by placing a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. If any color shows up in the bowl after 10 minutes, you have a leak. (Be sure to flush immediately after the experiment to avoid staining the tank.) Learn more at the EPA's Water Sense website
