CHECKING FOR LEAKS:

Turn off all faucets on both the interior and exterior of the home/building. If the meter is equipped with a diamond or triangle shaped leak detector and it is stationary, there is no leak: however, if it moves at all, there is a leak present. If the meter is not equipped with the type of leak detector described above, watch the red needle for a minute or two. If it moves without water being used through one of the faucets, a leak exists.

 
LEAKY TOILET? SILENT BUT COSTLY:

Toilet leaks can be silent but very costly over a short period of time. The best defense against these leaks is routine maintenance of the various parts of your toilet. In order to see if your toilet is leaking, place food coloring or a powdered drink in the back of the toilet tank (in order to change the color of the water) and wait 30 minutes. Do not flush!

If any of the colored water enters the toilet bowl (without flushing)--your toilet is leaking. At this time, you need to examine the flush valve (“flapper’) and the refill valve--they may need repair or replacement. Also, be sure to check the water level in the tank so that it is not entering the overflow tube when not in use.

   

Know Your Meter!



KNOW YOUR METER!

The water meter measures the amount of water that is used in the household. It is usually located in a basement, crawl space, utility closet or laundry room. On the outside of the house is a remote reader that is wired to the meter and allows the meter readers to obtain a reading without entering the house. The meter measures water usage in cubic feet. Each cubic foot equals 7.48 gallons. Reading your water meter is much like reading the odometer of a car. For billing purposes, only the first four digits on the left are used.

Michigan's Utility Color Codes


If you notice flags in your yard or along the roadway, it is an indicator that someone is planning to perform underground construction in that area. The color of the flag indicates the type of utility that has been marked.
