Where could the increase in my water usage be coming from?

Concerned about the recent increase in your water usage? There are many possible causes for high water consumption. Here are some tips that may help and first questions to ask:

  • Do you have new landscaping, grass, or plants?
  • Did you have an extra house guest during this billing cycle?
  • Have you increased the frequency or duration in which you water your yard? If you water manually, take care not to over-water.
  • If you have a swimming pool, did you fill or drain it during this billing cycle?
  • Do you have a water softener? - A faulty timer or stuck solenoid may waste hundreds of gallons of water per day.

If any of these apply to you, these are often common causes for increase water consumption and would likely have a temporary impact on your water bill.
