How to home test for a plumbing leak

This do it yourself test for plumbing leaks should be conducted during a time at which no water is being used on the property.
To test for a plumbing leak you will need to check your water meter. Locate your water meter and check the leak indicator to see if it is moving. Depending on the brand of your meter, the leak indicator could be a small triangular shaped dial or a small silver wheel that rotates when water is flowing through the meter. If the dial is moving, chances are, you have a plumbing leak.
An alternative test that can also be used is to check your water meter and take a meter reading. Wait 30 – 45 minutes, using no water at your home during this time. Take another reading from your water meter. If the reading has changed, you most likely have a plumbing leak.
After you have determined that you have a plumbing leak, contact Atlantic Leak Detection to schedule an appointment to locate the specific area of the plumbing leak and begin leak repairs.
