FINDING A LEAK Helpful Hints for Fining a Water Leak
The most common water leak is a dripping faucet. Toilet leaks are also common. A quick check can be made by dripping some food coloring into the commode tank after it has filled and become quiet. If after 15 min. the bluing appears in the bowl, this indicates a tank leak. To make a leak test of the overall plumbing, turn off all faucets and other water outlets, and keep watch on the meter for ten or fifteen minutes. If the hand continues to move, then there is a leak; the size of which can be measured by timing the hand to see how long it takes to waste a given quantity.
