Plumbing Tips: How to Determine If You Have a Leak Using Your Water Meter
A water meter keeps track of how much water your home uses. Your water meter is usually located near the sidewalk in the front yard of your home, inside a concrete box marked “Water Meter”. You can check for water leaks by using your meter. Simply turn off all the water on your property, sinks, toilets, sprinklers and laundry. Then check the water meter. If the lower indicator is turning, you have a leak. If it’s not turning, you still may have a leak. Make a note of the location of the pointer and the last 2 numbers on the far right windows. Don’t run the water for 30 minutes. Then go check the meter again. Have the dials have moved? You have a leak. It maybe dark in the meter box, so take a flashlight.
In the Event of a Leak: How to Shut off Water Valves
The master water supply is in the concrete box by the curb in your yard (the one used to determine if you had a water leak). To turn off the master valve, turn the valve handle clockwise.
If your toilet is leaking, the shut off valve is located beneath the toilet tank at the wall. Most sink shut off valves are located in the cabinet, under the faucet, against the wall. Washing machine supply hoses are located directly behind the washer.
Leaks waste a lot of water and can develop into more serious plumbing problems if left untreated. Call your Carlsbad plumber at John Stevenson Plumbing to repair any leaks you find, or to request professional leak detection services.
