DO I HAVE A WATER LEAK?
THE METER TEST
- The test should be conducted for a 30 minute period, during which time no water is being used on the property. Find the water meter, which is usually located in front of the house in a converted box near the street.
- Write down the number indicated on the meter at the start of the test.
- Return to check the meter reading after 30 minutes have passed.
- If the number has changed this indicated water consumption, even though water was not being used during the test, you may need to contact us.
REASON WHY WATER PIPES BURST
A variety of factors can cause water mains to fail. Pipes experience forces due to pressure surges, stressing joints and weak points in the pipes.
Forces can be caused by vehicles pressing down on the pipes, intermitted pressures from traffic moving across pipes can extend potentially damaging pressures on buried pipe lines.
