Use your meter to look for leaks

The video below shows how to use your meter to determine if you have a leak.

If you see the leak indicator on your meter, you can also use the meter to determine if a leak is inside our outside your home.  Shut off the main water valve to the home.  This valve is typically located in the basement, under a crawl space, or outside of the house.  Once water is off to the house, check the meter again.  If the flow has stopped on the meter, then the leak is likely to be inside the home.  If water flow is still indicated, then the leak is more likely to be between the meter and your home.
