If your water bill suddenly goes up, you could have a leak. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can solve that problem!
With prices and costs rising everywhere, you weren’t really surprised when you opened your water bill to find it was higher than normal. You said a few unprintable words and set it aside on the “to pay” pile for later. Then, on your morning stroll around the Pier, you had a thought – costs are rising, but the amount of increase in your water bill seemed higher than it should. You wonder if you have a leak.
You could. Especially if there’s no reason that your usage increased during the last billing period. In fact, a Pinellas County flyer notes that “a high bill usually means a leak.”
“Did you know that approximately 50 percent of all households have some kind of plumbing leak? Most of these leaks are due to worn out washers, flappers or faulty tank valves, which can result in hundreds or thousands of gallons of water wasted
needlessly. Not only is this a waste of natural resources, but it also registers through the meter, which could affect your water bill,” the flyer says.
One quick way to determine if you might have a leak is to check your water meter. The Pinellas County flyer explains “Most meter faces have a flow indicator (small in size, red or black in color, triangular in shape). If there is no water being used at the time of inspection, and the flow indicator is moving or spinning, this is a good indication that there may be a leak somewhere in or around
