13 % of drinking water is lost through leaky pipes. Often, homeowners are unaware of the problem and continue to pay excessively on their water bill. Du-All Plumbing Services offers these tips to help you save money on your water bill:

1. Shut off all the water in your home.

2. Find the water meter box for your house.

3. Observe the meter; it shouldn’t be moving. You have a fast leak if your meter is moving. You have a slow leak if, after ten minutes, you see the meter move.

4. If you notice a leak, you should turn off the incoming water to your home. After that is complete, if the meter is still moving, there is probably a leak in the service line and the water company should be notified immediately.
