Why is my water bill so high?
There are various reasons for high water bills. Often, the cause is related to a sprinkler system, as they are able to use up to 25 gallons of water per minute, per zone, depending on meter size. You can read your water meter before and after using the sprinkler system to get accurate usage for lawn watering. Unknown water leaks and running toilets are another reason for high usage. If you think there’s a possibility of a toilet leak, we have toilet tablets available for you to pick up at our main office. You may also use a colored cleaner (such as Pinesol or Fabuloso) in the water tank at the back of the toilet. If there is a leak, the cleaner should eventually appear in the toilet bowl. If it’s a slow leak, you may need to wait overnight. This problem can be solved by changing out your flapper kit in your toilet tank. It’s a fairly easy and inexpensive fix that could end up saving you money in the long run.
