Our system readings are showing a possible new leak within the district, again on a homeowner's property. This leak is consuming approximately 1500 gallons of water per day.
Within the last week, our readings are showing a significant nighttime use, when standard outflow should be at zero.
The likely source of the leak is in one or more homeowner's supply lines (street to house). Or, it could be a leak in a crawl space, or a toilet with a bad leak. It could be a break in a homeowner's pipe.
We ask that all homeowners using district water supply take the time to inspect their water systems. An easy check is to make sure the dishwasher, washing machine and all taps are off and then watch the meter at the street. When watching the meter, look at the triangle in the center not the needle. If the triangle is spinning, you have a leak.
As always, the District Trustees are happy to help you with finding and repairing leaks. You can contact us at 250-539-5206 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
