We recommend reviewing your last 15 months history of your water bills. If your bills have increased tremendously, it may be due to a leak. To check for a leak, turn off all faucets in the home or anything that may use water. Once this step is taken, go to the meter and see if the dials are spinning. If so, you have a leak somewhere. If dials are not spinning, call the office with the reading you get off of the meter @ 225-336-2406 and someone can determine if the meter is correct or may have been over read.
