Leak Detection Helpful Hints

Little leaks inside your home can waste large amounts of water and cost you money on your water utility bill. Below are some tips for identifying possible leaks inside your home.

  • Toilets:  If a toilet turns the water on without you touching the handle, if you have to jiggle the handle to make it stop running or if you have to hold the handle down to allow the tank to empty.  One way to determine if you have a leak is to add dark food coloring to the tank and wait 40 minutes.  Do not flush.  If the water in the bowl changes colors, you have a leak.
  • Bathroom, Kitchen and Outdoor Faucets:  Occasionally, faucets may leak in other places such as the on/off handles.  You may have a leak if there are visible drips at the piping or if there are wet, damp areas underneath the sink.
