Leaks
Check every faucet from attic to basement and in the yard. Replace worn washers and defective fixtures. Check for toilet leaks by coloring the water in the flush tank with household bluing. If colored water appears in the bowl without flushing, adjustments or repairs are needed. Turn off all faucets and connections, then read your meter twice, about 60 minutes apart. If the second reading is higher, you have a leak in your system that needs attention.
