Detecting a Leak
Oftentimes, sudden increase in monthly water usage is a sign of a leak somewhere in your home’s water lines. One way to discover if there is a leak in the system is to close all water taps and go to the water meter.
When all taps are closed, all of the red arrows should be standing still. If one or more of the red arrows on the meter are turning while the taps are closed, you probably have a leak.
In case that the leak is located at the meter or in the line connecting the meter to WEB’s distribution system, please contact our Call Center at 525-4200. If the leak is located on your property, check all faucets, showerheads, toilets and any other area’s of your home where there is flow of water. In more serious cases, professional attention may be necessary.
