Common Leaks That Waste Water

There are a number of common leaks inside and outside your home that could be wasting water. Every cubic meter of water that you use – even if it’s wasted – is registered on your meter, so leaks could be increasing your water bill.

Watch the video below to find out where you can look for common leaks that waste water.


If you suspect a leak, you can monitor your water meter in three easy steps:

  1. Write down your meter reading, including the number after the decimal point, before you go to bed. (If your meter is solar powered you may have to use a flashlight to activate reading.)
  2. Don’t use any water overnight.
  3. Read the meter again in the morning. If the number after the decimal point has changed, something in your home is leaking or wasting water.
