Save water sign tap waterAccording to the EPA, “In the United States, we are lucky to have easy access to some of the safest treated water in the world—just by turning on the tap. We wake up in the morning, take a shower, brush our teeth, grab a cup of coffee and head out for the day. Water is an important part of our daily life, but do we really understand how much we use? The average American family uses more than 300 gallons of water per day.”

Locate your water meter box, lift the lid and look for the leak indicator, a red or black triangle disc, if it’s spinning it indicates a leak. If you do not have a leak indicator notice where the hand is and after 10 minutes if it has moved it usually means you have a leak.

March 2nd, 2018

Here is a checklist to help determine if your swimming pool has sprung a leak. 

Family relaxing on inflatable rafts in a swimming poolCheck the equipment, pump, pad, heater, pipe valves, filter, and the ground for moisture.

Look for any soggy or wet areas around the equipment and pool areas.

Check to see how much water your pool is losing by using a grease pencil or tape and mark the water level at the skimmer. Check back in twenty-four hours, if your pool has lost more than a quarter of an inch of water a leak is evident.

There is also a bucket test to check for water leaks. Fill a bucket with water and place it on the step inside the pool and mark the water level of the pool on the inside and outside of the bucket. The water level should be the same in twenty-four hours, if not it indicates a leak.

Check the water meter, with everything in the home that uses water turned off (including the pool), check to see if the meter is still registering, if it is this also indicates a leak somewhere in the home.
