Longwood Plumbing Question : Do You Have A Leak At Your Water Meter

It is a good idea to know where your water meter is and keep it clear of debris like grass and other things. It is also a good idea to check it periodically for moisture. The most common leak at your water meter is at the joint where your PVC pipe and the city meter tie together. This is usually installed with a plastic male or female threads and is the weakest point on your pipe. The most common scenario is the customer does not even know where their water meter is and runs it over snapping the adaptor in the ground.

The next common thing is roots snap the water main at the meter and the city of Longwood FL shuts your water off and you come home to no water and there is a yellow note paper on the door saying you have a leak and to call a Longwood plumber to fix the leak. This is why it is important to know where your water meter is and check it every so often for wet spots.

If you notice a high water bill and don’t see any leaks in your home you should check the meter box for leaks. There is one situation that we have seen where moisture in the box doesn’t mean a water leak. Some areas in Florida have a high water table and if this is the case your water meter box will always be full with water. If you are unsure if you have a leak or not then you should call a local plumber to check it out. Call Drain Genie Plumbing Services at (407) 710-0210.
