If you receive an excessive water usage notice (or just an abnormally high water bill) from Chatham County Public Utilities, you’ll want to quickly determine the cause. It’s the only way you’ll stop those expensive water charges. Slowing your usage may also keep you from having your water turned off and paying penalties.

Your Full Stack Plumbing leak detection crew should be your first call if you suspect your Pittsboro or Siler City home has sprung a leak that’s causing a drain on your wallet.

Checking for Leaks in Your Chatham County Home

If you do have a leak in your home, Chatham County Public Utilities won’t usually be responsible for the costs of seeking it out or fixing it. That cost will be your responsibility, or the property owner’s responsibility if you are renting.

There are ways you can look for leaks yourself. It starts with just paying attention to your senses. Use your nose to sniff out any signs of mold or mildew. Look for any pooling water around appliances and under sinks. Scan the walls and ceilings for any water stains. Use your ears to detect any dripping.

If you need to find that leak fast, it’s a good idea to contact Full Stack Plumbing of Chatham County. Our skilled water detection team is fully licensed and certified to do an excellent job. They come fully insured. We also offer affordable prices and make sure you know everything you’ll be paying for upfront.

Asking for a Water Bill Adjustment Because of a Leak

If you do find a leak but you’ve already had to face a giant water bill, water and sewer providers will sometimes offer you a rebate or credit towards your next bill.

Water departments sometimes issue adjustments if you can prove that you found a leak and that a plumber has repaired it.

You can find information about the Chatham County Public Utilities adjustment process and find a link to their adjustment request form on their FAQ page under “What if I had a leak?”

You can find Pittsboro’s water adjustment policy here.

You can call the Siler City Public Works Department (919-742-4732) to check on their water bill adjustment policy.
