How to check for a leak on your prop­erty

Home (South Africa) - - GARDENS WATERWISE -

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!
