How can I determine if I have a leak?
Most meters are equipped with a leak indicator (see figure below) that can help you identify if you have a leak at your home. Before you go and look at your water meter make sure all water is turned off inside your home. If any water is left on from faucets running or clothes washers, etc. this will affect the results of looking at your water meter. Once you find your meter and have the lid pulled off, you want to find the face of the meter. If all water is off to your home the leak indicator should not be moving. If it is moving that means that water is being pulled through the meter and there is the possibility of a leak. The leak could be anywhere from the meter box to inside the home. A plumber may be able to help you identify where the leak is. Please contact Oconee Utility if you have any questions regarding a possible leak 706-769-3960.
