Water leak detection

updated: Wednesday, July 20, 2016

I received a letter that I may have continuous water flow (water leak). How do I use my water meter to help determine if I have continuous water flow?
Since homeowners are responsible for all water use, even results from a leak, it’s important to investigate the cause of the continuous flow. First, check your water meter to confirm the continuous flow. Your water meter is inside your home and has two indicators showing water use. Here’s how to check it:

  1. Open the black cap on top of the meter.
  2. Shine a flashlight on the solar panel. (It’s important to use a flashlight, not a smartphone – the smartphone light isn’t strong enough to activate the panel.)
  3. The screen below the solar panel will then display the current water meter reading in gallons.
  4. FaucetIt will also flash other indicators such as “Leak” or “Rate of Flow.” If you see a faucet (shown on right) this indicates an intermittent flow (flashing faucet) or continuous flow (faucet light stays on). The rate of flow should be 0.00 if there is no water flowing through the meter. 


If you’d like to see a video showing this process, please view the video below.



I’ve determined there is a leak. How do I fix it?
Common leak sources are toilets, water softener malfunctions, indoor and outdoor faucets, humidifiers attached to furnaces and irrigation systems. Check these out first. Often a leak may be more audible than visible, so listen carefully for water flow or leaks. Once you find the leak, you may be able to fix it or you may need to hire a professional. If you can’t find anything, you may want to hire a plumber to investigate.
