There are several potential sources of a high water usage, including some that you as a homeowner can test for:
- Check for a leaky toilet by placing a few drops of food coloring in the tank of every toilet. If coloring appears in the bowl, the toilet has a small leak that results in many lost gallons.
- Check to make sure no outdoor faucets are unintentionally running.
