How to check for a leak on your property
1 Stop all water use. Close all taps on the property and don’t flush toilets. 2 Check and record your meter reading. 3 Wait 15 minutes and take another reading. Make sure that nobody has opened a tap or flushed since you first noted the meter reading. 4 If the number on the meter has increased, it means you have a leak. 5 Call a plumber to help fix the leak – unless it’s a simple DIY job!
