Apopka Basic Leak Detection

If you get a high Apopka FL water bill there are somethings you can do before calling a Apopka plumber. The first thing is find where your meter box is. It is usually a black rectangular plastic or concrete box. Remove the lid and look at the dial called the low flow indicator.

Make sure no one is using the water in the house and look at the low flow indicator. Of it is moving, there is water loss in your Apopka home. You can then isolate it by finding the water shut off valve to the house, usually on the same side of the house as the meter. Once you find the valve, shut it off. If it stops, then the leak is in the house. If the water moves after shutting the valve off your plumbing leak is outside between the meter and the house. If it is in the house, check the toilet. This is the number one reason for plumbing leaks. The first thing to check, is the toilet flapper and make sure it is flat. Next check the fill valve that it is not over filling, going down the fill tube. These are some basic things to look for in your plumbing system if you can’t find the leak. We at Drain Genie Plumbing Services suggest calling a plumber to find the plumbing leak, but doing these things you can sometimes save money by finding minor plumbing leaks on your own.
