Checking for Leaks

Using Built-in Leak Detector

watermeterleakdetectorStep 1 

Temporarily stop using water by turning off all water-using devices such as showers, water closets, washing machines.

Step 2

Raise the protective cover of the water meter.

Observe the triangular disc (usually red) commonly called the “leak indicator.” If the red triangle is spinning, your water connection has a leak.

For water meters without indicators, check if the meter dial hand is moving. If it is, water is running somewhere in your system and there is a leak. Check toilets, washing machines, faucets to identify where the leak is.
