Most people assume that they would know if they had a water leak, but the truth is that water can be leaking behind your walls without you seeing it. One easy way to determine if you could have a hidden leak is to monitor your water meter, so you can call your plumber at the first sign of an issue.
To use your water meter to figure out if you have a leak, check the reading on your meter. After noting the reading, stop using water in your home for several hours. When that time has passed, check the meter again. If the reading has increased, you have water leaking somewhere in your home. Your plumber can pinpoint the cause and make the necessary repairs to prevent further damage from occurring.
