Tips To Identify Water Leaks


We often have residents who are unaware they have a water leak until they receive an unexpectedly high water bill. Here are some tips on how to locate a leak when there aren't obvious signs such as a dripping faucet:


  • Listen for sounds such as hissing, splashing or clicking when your faucets are off.

  • Look for cracks, stains, sinking, peeling or damp areas in ceilings, walls, floors and cabinets.

  • Smell under sinks and in cabinets for musty, earthy odors

  • Drop food coloring in your toilet tank, wait 10 minutes, and look for color in the bowl

  • Call the City to check your water meter. Turn off all your water, then check to see if it's still running. 

Water Conservation Facts

  • Minor water leaks account for more than 1 trillion gallons of wasted water each year - equivalent to the annual water use in 11 million homes.

  • A leaky faucet dripping at the rate of one drop per second wastes more than 3,000 gallons per year.

  • A shower leaking at 10 drips per minute wastes more than 500 gallons per year.

  • The toilet is the No. 1 source of leaks in the home. A running toilet wastes 200-plus gallons per day, enough to fill a backyard swimming pool in just four months.

  • 10% of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day.
