HOW TO USE YOUR METER TO CHECK FOR LEAKS
- Be sure no water is on inside your dwelling. This includes toilets, ice makers, washing machines, etc.
- If no water is on, check your meter for any movement of the dial. When water is passing through the meter, the dial will move in a clockwise direction. If water is off and the dial moves, you have a leak.
- Once you have determined you have a leak, call a plumber or do the repairs yourself. The Madison County Water Department is not responsible for the lines from the meter to your dwelling.
- If an adjustment of the customer's bill is warranted, the amount of the bill will be determined by obtaining the average billing amount for the prior 12 months. The customer will be responsible for the average water bill (multiplied by three) to cover a portion of the excess water charges. Customers are eligible for one adjustment in a 12 month period and the adjustment must be made within 30 days from the time of repair.
Every Drop Counts!!!
A faucet leaking one drop per second wastes 2,400 gallons per year.
To check if your toilet tank is leaking, put a few drops of food coloring in the tank, wait about 15 minutes, and look in the bowl. If the food coloring shows up there, the tank is leaking.
