Do You Have a High Water Bill?
The Kingwood area is notorious for high water bills…. we’ve all seen the bills and heard the stories. Often times we don’t have an explanation an the city is not often cooperative in resolving the problem. There are a handful of things you can do to determine is your high water bill more than a faulty reader or improper reading. To begin the obvious culprits that contribute to a high water bill are leaking faucets, dripping valves, toilets continuously running and lawn irrigation over use or leaks. What can you do to double check you plumbing for unwanted water use? To begin check the water meter. If everything in the house is off but the red dial continues to move (even just slightly) you likely have a leak somewhere. How can you isolate a leak that is causing a high water bill? The next step would be shutting the valve to the house off. This will tell you if you have a leak in your water service, unlike the picture above there is not always pooling water that makes the leak obvious. So with the main house valve off if the meter keeps moving you have a leak somewhere between the meter and house (sometimes in irrigation systems). If you shut the house down and the meter stops then you know the leak is somewhere within the building. Most people ignore the leaking and dripping faucets… this obviously is 1 factor that should be addressed to avoid wasting water and help reduce the overall monthly water cost. Some of the less obvious are continuously running toilets (perhaps over filling) or a leaking flush valve. A toilet that overfills can often be heard and can be adjusted if the toilet fill valve is good. The leaking flush valve or often referred to as leaking flapper can be harder to catch. Does your toilet ever fill when nobody is using it? The toilet leak attributing to high water consumption may be more subtle. Try adding a few drops of food grade dye into the tank, if you see color in the bowl shortly after you have a toilet problem. These are just a few tips to help diagnose why your water bill is so high. It’s all tied to your plumbing system and can sometimes be difficult to find or diagnose.
