What are some possible causes for higher water usage?
Often when the consumption is higher than normal, we find that water has been consumed on the property, but in a way that the customer had not anticipated. Some possible causes may be:
  • Misadjusted automatic sprinklers causing unnecessary / frequent irrigation - power outages and testing by landscape personnel is often the source of this
  • Over-irrigation on slope or outlying landscaping due to missing sprinkler heads or broken pipes
  • Hose left in yard by mistake
  • Leaks from toilet or faucets
  • Malfunctioning water softeners
  • High usage in pool, pond, or spa due to repair or refill - automatic refill occurs unnoticed in some units
