The Water Meter Test
An unusually high water bill may indicate a leak in your home’s plumbing in Fort Worth. The water meter test provides homeowners with a simple test to determine if a hidden water leak is present.
• Ensure no water is used in the home during the test. Open the lid on the water meter and write down the numbers. Wait one hour, and read the meter again. If the second set of numbers is higher than the first, the system may have a possible leak. However, this test may not pick up minor leaks.
• Isolate the Leak: To determine if the leak is inside or outside of the home, turn off the water supply valve, which is typically located on or near an outside wall where the water supply line enters the home. If the meter does not move after a second reading, the leak is likely to be inside the home. Please note, not all homes will have a valve on the water supply.
• When the leak is in a hot water pipe, or involves the water heater, the energy bill that fuels the appliance will also be elevated. Providing a routine inspection of the area beneath and surrounding the water heater can prevent additional damage.
