If your water bill unexpectedly increases but your water usage has not changed, it could mean you have a leak.
To check for a leak, turn off your taps on your property. If water use dial is still spinning, you have a leak
and need to call a plumber.
If you are unable to find the leak, we suggest you contact a licensed plumber to detect and repair the leak for you.
