It can be hard to watch as your water bill continues to rise and not wonder if you’ve got a water leak draining away your hard-earned dollars.
There are ways to check on your suspicions about a water leak and Full Stack Plumbing of Pittsboro and Chatham County can help.
How Do I Know If I Have a Leak?
Water leaks are often silent drips that can be hard to detect until you reach under a sink one day or see water stains soaking through a wall or ceiling.
Our Chatham County water leak detection team can help you track down a potential leak. Our Chatham County plumbers can come to your home and rely on their experience to locate the most likely source of a leak. Our highly skilled team also uses specialized equipment to detect where the water may be running.
There are also signs you can look out for that might tip you off that there’s a leak, even before you make a call to Full Stack Plumbing.
- Water stains or mold and mildew in cabinets, on ceilings, and on walls
- A musty smell
- Paint or wallpaper damage
- Cracks in sheetrock or ceilings
- Water puddles around appliances and under faucets.
- A loss of water pressure
- A jump in water bills
In other cases, a burst pipe is easy to notice. You may suddenly have a flood in your house. Shut off your water and call Full Stack Plumbing as soon as you can. We want to partner with you on minor and major plumbing projects.
Checking with Your Water Service Provider
Chatham County homeowners may need to check with their water service provider to see if there may be any other explanation for a hike in water bills.
For some residents that may mean getting in contact with Chatham County Public Utilities. Their home page says they focus on accurate billing of water customers. Perhaps a water meter is malfunctioning. Others living in Pittsboro or Siler City can contact their city’s utility department.
You may also need to determine the number of days in the billing period of the invoice you are concerned over. Sometimes a water bill may seem like more because a billing period is 32 days. Some billing periods are only 27 days. This difference in spans can greatly affect the amount of a bill.
If you discover a perfectly good reason for your water bill to go up, such as filling a swimming pool or finding a leak in your house, you may be eligible for a water bill adjustment. Not all water departments award adjustments to customers. It’s worth it to check with your water and sewer provider.
An adjustment is a discount on your water bill, sometimes just for one month, if you find a leak has left you holding an enormous water bill.
Usually, an adjustment to your water bill wouldn’t be granted if your water use went up due to watering your lawn.
