Water leak information

Homeowners are responsible for all water use, even if it results from a leak.

How to check for a leak

Check common leak sources like toilets, water softener malfunctions, indoor and outdoor faucets, humidifiers attached to furnaces, irrigation systems, reverse osmosis systems and ice makers. You may be able to hear a leak before you see it, so listen carefully for water flow or leaks. If you can’t find anything, you may want to hire a plumber to investigate.
