When you notice that your water bills are going up for no reason, you need to consider what might be happening. You may have had another person move in. You may have had another child, or you may be doing things that use more water. You do not want to be alarmed about your water bill if it is easy to explain. However, you need some assistance from a professional plumber when you know that your water bill is rising due to some unseen problem.
The Leaky Pipes
There are many pipes in your home that can leak without giving you any sign of a leak. The leak could happen in a place where you will not notice, and these leaks will evaporate fast enough that they never show any signs of a leak. The only way to know if you have a leak is to request a leak detection appointment. Our service technicians are able to check all the pipes in the house for leaks. You will not be able to reach these pipes, but we can get to them easily.
There are many appliances in the house that will use more water than you like. The water usage for the unit may start well, but the unit may began to use more water as it begins to break down. You need to have a plumber check each appliance to see how much water it is using. Also, these appliances could leak within themselves. You never notice because the leaks are hidden or covered, but the leaks are there. Finding these leaks could help reduce your water bill.
There are many people with outdoor water features, fountains or ponds. There are still other people who have irrigation systems in the yard. When these systems leak, they waste water all day. You never notice that you are using water all day, but you could lose thousands of gallons a day without ever noticing until you get your water bill.
When you see those uncharacteristically high water bills, you need to make sure that you have one of our plumbers come check on your home. You do not need to go looking for these leaks on your own, and we have the expertise required to fix these leaks the moment we find them.
