How do I know if I have a water leak?
Make sure all water is off in the house and is not about to come on. Open the meter box and look at the register on the water meter. On the meter dial will be a leak detector, either a small red or black triangle. This dial turns when water is passing through the meter. It is geared low enough to detect a very small leak. It should not be turning at all. If the meter has no leak detector, you will need to watch the big hand closely for a few minutes. If the dial indicator moves you may have a leak.
