The at home test is a easy way for you or the home owner to easily determine if the leak is indoor or outdoor. For our visual learners, we have provided a photo to show what will be explained below.
1. Make sure nobody is using the water inside. Sinks, showers,laundry machine, dish washer.
2.Check the water meter usually placed on the lawn near the side walk. Is it spinning? Look carefully because sometimes it'll move really slow.
3.Is it spinning? If so, Turn off your homes water valve.
ITS NOT SPINNING? IT IS POSSIBLE YOU HAVE A A/C LEAK OR DRAIN LEAK.
4. Now check the water meter. If it stopped, your leak is inside. If it is still spinning, you most likely have a leak in the city water main line that connects to your home or your irrigation.
